Helping candidates develop a research and publication plan
In which order or at what stage of candidature would you introduce the following ideas to your candidates? Give examples of how you might go about doing this.
Co-authoring
Why author with someone else. E.g.




To learn from them how to write for publication?
To share expertise?
To help keep motivated?

Ethics re co-authoring




How much should an author be expected to contribute to have their name on the article/book?
How to determine whose name goes first and the order of other authors?
When should these issues be discussed, especially with a supervisor?

Using seminars as a stepping stone to conference publication



Does the university have a seminar program in which a candidate can present work? How is that organised? Or are there seminar programs at nearby universities?
Hint: making sure there is a friend in the audience ready to ask a question the candidate knows they can answer with confidence (just in case things get ‘difficult’).

Using conferences as a stepping stone for publication





Which are the most appropriate conferences (e.g. topic, venue, funding) for which to prepare papers? Presenting with a view to revising the paper for publication based on comments (so avoid publishing in conference proceedings if planning to publish in a journal).
Hint: having someone in the conference session to take notes from the discussion (it’s very difficult to present and note comments at the same time).
When are the conferences? Need to timetable preparation and seek funding and then allow revision time to have some sense of when a manuscript might be ready for sending to a journal. Journal publishing








How to identify the most appropriate journals for possible publication.
Does the university/government have rules about different types of journals that are considered more…...

...have large bold headlines. Graphics appear next to related stories. The universal format of a newspaper presents information in a predictable way. In a straight news story, the headline gives the reader the main idea of the story. The lead paragraph gives a summary of the story in capsule form, answering the important newspaper questions – who, what, when, where, why and how. The remainder of the news story provides additional details, with the least important information at the end of the story. Academic American Encyclopaedia (1989: 171) describes newspaper in a broad sense as “an unbound publication issued at regular intervals that seeks to inform, analyze, influence and entertain”. Hynds (1975) provides nine criteria for classifying newspaper. Some of these are frequency of publication (a newspaper can be published at various intervals but usually appears weekly or daily); time of publication; purpose; circulation; geography; method of production and intended audience, etc. 1.1 WHAT IS NEWS? The simple definition of news as given by the ‘Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of Current English’ is “new or fresh information; report(s) of what has most recently happened”. From this definition, we can say that news is any fresh thing reported in the various fields of human endeavour. It ranges from social, political, socio-economic realities and, sometimes religious reporting. Moreover, news is drawn from the life experiences of people who make up a society and between......

He is professor of Material Culture in the Department of Anthropology, University College London. Currently he is on research leave for research on the impact of social media in seven countries. How has social media influenced the life of students? What is the difference in the effects on students of residential colleges and normal colleges? Miller: Students who are receiving their education in non-residential colleges usually miss the intensity of interaction outside classroom. Social media compensates providing a platform for them to interact. We have seen students from different geographies to schedule a particular time in a day to come on social networking site to interact and even do their study discussions. In this way social media recreates the same conditions akin to a class room to bring these people together and help increase interaction among them. Is......

Working with Federal Reserve's Publications

...Assignment #2: Working with Federal Reserve’s Publications Melis Metin Instructor: Prof. Winston Edmonston-Deigh Money and Banking-ECO320 February 1, 2011 Describe the Federal Reserve’s assessment of the current economic activity and financial markets. According to the staff review of the Federal Reserve, consumer spending increased significantly in 2010. Private investment in the form of business outlays for equipment and software is showing a sustainable growth. Construction activities, on the other hand, in both residential and nonresidential sectors of the construction industry are weak. The Fed’s staff observes that the industrial production increased solidly in the recent months due to the colder weather boosting the activities in the utilities. Even though there is a modest gain in employment, unemployment remained high. The trade deficit narrowed slightly in the last months of 2010 due to the increase in agricultural goods exports. The rise in imports was due to the increases in the value of the petroleum products. In the imports front, the Fed observes that the imports of automotive products, services, and consumer goods declined significantly. The Fed expects that the trade deficit will improve over the coming months. In the financial markets front, the Fed observes that short-term funding markets sustained their stability. As for then capital markets, broad U.S. stock price indexes increased. In fact, bank stock prices......

Behind the Publication of Anne Frank’s Diary

...Behind the Publication of Anne Frank’s Diary The Anne Frank Diary is a legacy for humanity. Almost half of the world have read and learned about of the story of three families who had to hide in a secret annex in a factory because they were Jews, and they were being persecuted by the Nazis in the Holocaust. However, not everybody knows how hard was to publish this amazing book, Anne’s wishes to become in author, and the big role of her father, Otto Frank, and Miep Gies to help to this book had been published. Otto Frank began to consider of having the diary published moved by Anne´s repeated wish to be an author. Miep Gies gave Otto Frank the diary and a bundle of loose notes that she had saved in the hope of returning of Anne. But, in July, 1945, the Red Cross confirmed the death of the Anne Frank. Otto Frank later commented that he had not realized Anne had kept such an accurate and well-written record of their time in hiding. He described the painful process of reading the diary, recognizing the events described and recalling that he had already heard some of the more funny episodes read aloud by his daughter. He saw for the first time the more private side of his daughter, and those sections of the diary she had not discussed with anyone. Otto Frank told to a group of Jewish friends about the diary, and one of them was really touched about it. He asked to Otto if he could lend the diary to the historian Jan Romein to read, a good friend of his. Otto Frank hesitated,......

The Threat of Online Publication

...The Threat of Online Publications to the Traditional Publishing Industry The aggregate demand of published material, both online and offline, is a fixed number. Publishers in today's mass media market face fierce competition; each customer that an online publisher wins comes at the expense of its offline counterpart. To illustrate, imagine the unequal slicing of a pumpkin pie representing market shares that vary in size. The sum of all shares, or 'slices,' adds up to the total client base. Although each publisher already owns a portion of the pie, it still covets those who have a bigger slice. In this zero-sum game, with each new slice that a publisher gains, its pie becomes incrementally larger, while the competition's becomes incrementally smaller. Statistics have shown an upward trend in e-journal subscriptions in recent years, mainly because online periodicals are more frequently updated, cheaper to produce, and accessible everywhere (Greco 2). To that end, the internet has helped many web-based media business increase their market share while simultaneously decrementing those owned by their offline competition. Given their inferiority in cost, channeling, and time-to-market, how do traditional publishers stay in business? In the same way opposing forces in nature result in a state of equilibrium, there is a single overarching mechanism in the publishing industry that is designed to buffer short-term market gains and resist long-term change.

Working with Federal Reserve's Publications

...the opportunity to be a leading captain of industry and the associated power, prestige, and income. (You expect your salary, bonus, and stock option to double next year). However, you are troubled by the fact that 70% of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) reportedly fail. How would you proceed? Research into companies involved in cross-border mergers and acquisitions, however, points to failure rates of up to 70% with very few deals enhancing shareholder value. When analyzed in more detail, the overwhelming majority of senior personnel highlight culture and communication as the two areas that prove to be the most challenging. This is substantiated by a survey of Fortune 500 CFOs where 45% attributed M&A failure to “unexpected post-deal people problems”. Issues ranging from corporate governance to employee welfare or customer satisfaction become complex when different cultures are involved. Understanding the opportunities and threats that these cross-border M&As present must form a key part of any pre and post-merger integration strategy. High Failure Rates of Cross-Border M&As. What is driving failure rates of up to 70% in cross-border mergers and acquisitions? Research has shown that the parties involved do not adequately address the culture and communication issues that are at the heart of integrating two organizations. Culture has often been described as ‘the way we do things around here’ and differences in management styles, attitudes to planning, communication......

Are Publications Truly Different in Nature?

...Dawn M. Hampton Mrs. Pfeifer Composition 1 July 8, 2014 Are Publications Truly Different in Nature? Most people can recognize the name or are familiar with The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and National Enquirer (NE). Closely examining the two newspapers, it can be stated that there are some similarities and definitely differences. Although the readership can be assumed to be of different personality types WSJ and NE contain similarities and differences in terms of their graphics, advertisements, and article content. To start with, comparing the graphics of the two publications, it is noted that both have similarity with the use of bold larger font lettering for their headlines making a visual effect in separating articles. Both papers use colored ink for images and pictures and also feature photos of people that mirror human emotion. For example, the WSJ’s article “Teens Care Spurs Wider Fight” has a picture of the teen’s mother looking distraught and another article in the WSJ sports section titled “Team Canada: Officially Unstoppable” shows a hockey player with his hands up in the air and a look of celebratory victory with a huge smile on his face. In like manner, NE has numerous photos of people showing emotion. For instance, the article “Mad Mel’s Even Madder” contains a photo shot of Mel Gibson with a look of anger and appears as if he is yelling; while another article on the same page “Celine’s Cancer Stricken Husband” shows a picture of Celine Dion looking...

European Publication

...European publication:  It is a rationalistic effort to use philosophy in order to "vindicate the ways of God to man" (l.16), a variation of John Milton's claim in the opening lines of Paradise Lost, that he will "justify the ways of God to man" (1.26). It is concerned with the natural order God has decreed for man. Because man cannot know God's purposes, he cannot complain about his position in the Great Chain of Being (ll.33-34) and must accept that "Whatever IS, is RIGHT" (l.292), a theme that would soon be satirized by Voltaire in Candide.[1] More than any other work, it popularized optimistic philosophy throughout England and the rest of Europe. Pope's Essay on Man and Moral Epistles were designed to be the parts of a system of ethics which he wanted to express in poetry. Moral Epistles have been known under various other names including Ethic Epistles and Moral Essays. On its publication, An Essay on Man met with great admiration throughout Europe. Voltaire called it "the most beautiful, the most useful, the most sublime didactic poem ever written in any language". In 1756 Rousseau wrote to Voltaire admiring the poem and saying that it "softens my ills and brings me patience". Kant was fond of the poem and would recite long passages of the poem to his students [2]. However later Voltaire renounced his admiration for Pope andLeibniz's optimism and even wrote a novel, Candide, as a satire on Pope and Leibnitz's philosophy of ethics. The essay, written in heroic couplets...

Web Site Publication Process

...on the Internet. What we published is one of the first questions to be asked. We want to publish a personal website, professional, a blog, audio or otherwise. This election will define our initial publication, which is why we must be very sure and plan as much as possible. The type of site we post will play a main objective which we must be clearly delineated before doing anything. Then how the public. This takes into account the resources and knowledge which we have or could have. The primary budget will define what kind of publication can take shape. If we do not have sufficient funding to pay for a hosting, a domain, we have sufficient training or to edit our pages the best choice is to use a wizard to publish a free hosting service or sponsored. The choice of site hosting quite fit with final scope of our project. If your site has dynamic pages need to have databases, but any host that suits us in terms of speed, stability and service is adequate. We must also consider other issues such as how many e-mail allows us to hold that share file transfer and offers support when implementing forms and other services such as domain aliases, sub domains, statistics, etc.. This is an example of a check list we can use to verify the publication of a web site. 1. Have I found that my domain has no previous penalties in search engines? 2. Is the domain name contains keywords useful / relevant? 3. Did I choose wisely the......

Report Publications

...It is important that the title be both brief and descriptive of your research. Search engines will use the title to help locate your article. Readers make quick decisions as to whether they are going to invest the time to read your article largely based on the title. Thus, the title should not contain jargon or vernacular. Rather, the title should be short (generally 15 words or less) and clearly indicate what the study is about. If in doubt, try to specify the cause and effect relationship in your key point. Avoid trite and wasteful phrases such as "A study of ..." or "An investigation to determine ..." Abstract: The abstract serves two major purposes: it helps a person decide whether to read the paper, and it provides the reader with a framework for understanding the paper if they  decide to read it. Thus, your abstract should describe the most important aspects of the study within the word-limit provided by the journal. As appropriate for your research, try to include a statement of the problem, the people you studied, the dependent and independent variables, the instruments, the design, major findings, and conclusions. If pressed for space, concentrate on the problem and, especially, your findings. Introduction: You will usually start your report with a paragraph or two presenting the investigated problem, the importance of the study, and an overview of your research strategy. You do not need to label this section. Its position within the paper makes that obvious....
