ED515 Writing for Journal Publication

Introduces the practices, politics, and conventions of publishing in the social sciences, in particular education, educational linguistics, and psychology. Discusses the range of genres of scholarly publication, but focuses on the practices of academic journals. Guides students through understanding the landscape of journal publishing, including citation indexes and impact factor, choosing a target journal, and guidelines and submission practices. Helps students develop an awareness of their particular issues and concerns about writing for publication. This is not a writing workshop in which students work on a text for submission to a journal, but a course in which to gain the background knowledge to support that step.
