Books about Academic Publishing
Writing for Publication by
Writing for Publication deals with a number of generic issues around academic writing (including intellectual property rights) and then considers writing refereed journal articles, books and book chapters in detail as well as other, less common, forms of publication for academics. The aim is to demystify the process and to help you to become a confident, competent, successful and published writer.

After reading this book you will better understand: how to write what is considered the most important type of medical article, the research-based medical article, how to write an evidence-based argumentative medical article, the challenges of clinical case reporting, and the general framework of medical and research ethics.

They Say / I Say by
"They Say / I Say" identifies the key rhetorical moves in academic writing, showing students how to frame their arguments in the larger context of what others have said and providing templates to help them make those moves. And, because these moves are central across all disciplines, the book includes chapters on writing in the sciences, writing in the social sciences, and--new to this edition--writing about literature.
Publishing Your Work
Publishing your work depends on research into your field of study, the strength of your research methodology (stronger is better), and the ability to handle all the moving parts of a publication inquiry.
The Handbook of Scholarly Writing and Publishing by
This book is intended to enable emerging scholars and anyone else wishing to improve their writing skills to better understand the parts of a manuscript and how they fit together and support each other to create a quality publication. Our goal is to fill a conceptual and practical gap within the literature by bringing together in one book different perspectives and providing information about different types of manuscripts that a scholarly writer is likely to encounter.
At various times, you'll be asked to handle:
- proof-reading and editing
- communication with the publisher and any co-authors
- managing legal documents governing your work
The course of academic publishing never ran smooth, but you can do it!
