Many a good manuscript has been turned down because of an ineffective proposal, and many a poor manuscript has been sent out for a formal review because the proposal was flawless. Get tips on how to get your book proposal past this hurdle and onto the next stage.
An FAQ on vanity, hybrid, and other publishers that ask for your money in order to get published. Even though this is from a fiction writers association, there are vanity and subsidy publishers hovering around the academic realm as well.
The cover letter is your chance to lobby on behalf of your manuscript. The letter is far from just a formality and should be written with the same care as your manuscript’s text (if not more). Ultimately, your cover letter is designed to influence the decision of the editor to send your manuscript out for peer review.
What opportunities, rather than disruptions, do digital technologies present? How do developments in digital media not only support scholarship and teaching but also further social justice? Written by two experts in the field, this accessible book offers practical guidance, examples, and reflection on this changing foundation of scholarly practice. It is the first to consider how new technologies can connect academics, journalists, and activists in ways that foster transformation on issues of social justice. Discussing digital innovations in higher education as well as what these changes mean in an age of austerity, this book provides both a vision of what scholars can be in the digital era and a road map to how they can enliven the public good.
Jessie Daniels and Polly Thistlethwaite discuss why so many scholars who are interested in open access publishing are also social justice activists, and how those scholars and activists can expand public access to scholarship.
Finding journals to publish in
CUNY’s Office of Library Services is collaborating with CUNY’s Office of Research and the Research Foundation’s Office of Award Pre-Proposal Support to offer Faculty Funding Fridays, a new webinar series for the CUNY community. This is a recording of their first workshop:
Selecting a Venue for Journal Publication September 25, 2020 Led by Megan Wacha (Scholarly Communications Librarian, Office of Library Services) and Tracey Revenson (Professor of Psychology at Hunter College and Editor-in-Chief of the Annals of Behavioral Medicine)
This webinar supports faculty researchers to make informed decisions when selecting a journal to publish their work, including how to find and evaluate potential journal venues (including the identification of predatory publishers), as well as understanding one’s rights as an author when negotiating contracts.
MORE TIPS ON FINDING A JOURNAL HOME FOR YOUR ARTICLE
Don't forget to check the journals you used in your research. Maybe one of them is the perfect place for your article.
Another way to find journals by subject is to search the LaGuardia Library OneSearch using topic keywords along with the term "periodicals".
Expand your search to all CUNY catalogs by choosing "All CUNY Libraries" from a OneSearch results page or Advanced Search page. Note that you can access most CUNY libraries with your ID in order to access the electronic and print journals of those other CUNY libraries. Reference staff should be able to help you find a computer for viewing electronic journals that doesn't require a login from that campus.
Search the Serials Directory database to locate information on nearly 250,000 journal titles. This database's advanced search allows you to target journals by characteristics such as frequency of publication and publisher.
