Product Description

Review

"Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks is the one book I would most recommend to inexperienced academic authors in the humanities or social sciences who seriously wish to see their scholarly work in print. Other books may be quicker to read, but I doubt if any would ultimately prove to be as effective." -- Steven E. Gump 20100315 "Thorough, beautifully organized, and humane. This is a welcome light on a dark process." -- Kevin Peterson 20101207 "Belcher's book uses an interactive format to help writers develop a manuscript for submission from a pre-existing text such as a dissertation/thesis... When I used this book to teach writing for publication, doctorial students responded enthusiastically to the format and tone, which bolstered their confidence and enabled them to confront displacement activities." -- Mary Jane Curry "While addressing the sometimes-unsearchable field of scholarly writing and publishing, Wendy Belcher uses unpretentious, contemporary, and even witty prose that is simultaneously captivating and informative." -- Grant Eckstein 20100503

About the Author

Wendy Laura Belcher is an award-winning author, academic editor, international lecturer, and professor. She designed one of the first publication focused writing courses for graduate students and junior faculty in the nation, and for ten years has conducted such courses at the University of California, Los Angeles, and in research institutions around the world, including those in Norway, Malawi, Sudan, and Egypt. These popular workshops are based on her twenty years of experience as an academic editor, including eleven years managing an ethnic studies press and the peer-reviewed journal of record in the field, Aztlan: A Journal of Chicano Studies, as well as her two master's degrees in the social sciences and a doctorate in the humanities. She is also a published nonfiction author, whose memoir about her childhood in Ethiopia and Ghana, Honey from the Lion: An African Journey, won a Washington State Governor's Writers Award and honorable mention in the Martha Albrand/PEN Society Award for first book of nonfiction. She is now an assistant professor of African literature in the Princeton University Department of Comparative Literature and the Center for African American Studies.

Format: Paperback
This is by far the best book I have read on the subject of academic writing. There are many such texts out there that are of high quality, but this one proves itself a level above. All aspects of writing, ranging from psychological difficulties one can meet to work organization to how to formulate an argument, are covered. PhD students as well as college and university professors will benefit from it when comes the time to write academic documents, articles, conference papers, and books. It is written in plain language, it is funny, there are a ton of useful practical tips based on real experiences, and it gives you a sense of belonging to a community. I believe this book will become a classic, and staple in its field, that can be used in many areas of study.

Wendy Belcher gives a ton of helpful hints and tips for getting your writing done. It is comprehensive and includes everything short of someone to do the actual writing. I highly recommend this writing tool. You will feel like you have a writing assistant with you all along the way of your article writing journey.

This book is great if you already are writing something to be published. You need to collect all your resources ahead of time, before starting this book, or else it will feel weird to read about writing and researching if you have not done any already.

At our library we have a service for recommending where to publish journals and this book gave me even more points to consider. I like how the author demystifies writing - it's not "natural", it's something that needs to be worked on consistently.

I think this book is a must have for any academic (new or experienced) who needs a bit of guidance on how to get some writing done! Pick it up at your library, test it out, and you might find that you use it so much you need your own copy (like me).
