Abstract

I propose to examine the process of scholarly publishing; how it works, what it does, and how to get started. From the process of finding the right journal for the voice, then finding the current topics of discussion and discourse in a specific genre, on to the submission procedures, guidelines and expectations, understanding the way in which an article is reviewed, the work of revision/re-submission as an opportunity as well as models of the cover letter for the re-submission. Investigating the process from beginning to end in order to gain an understanding of how the process unfolds, until the final sought after achievement; the acceptance and publication of an article. Perhaps in bringing light to this subject, the unease that usually accompanies this undertaking, can be lessened, the process better understood, and that can, in turn, allow for an easier navigation to achieving publication.
