This poster will provide ideas for ways in which faculty can write and publish peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and book reviews, based on the author’s experiences. Many faculty have research and projects on which they would like to publish, especially with the creative opportunities that abound on college campuses. Converting them from ideas to articles and book chapters takes time, patience, and often collaboration with others. Learn how to discover appropriate publishing outlets in journals and books, including the rapidly growing outlet of open access journals. Once you finish your work, submit your draft and expect to make revisions. Your reward will be a published product. The author will also share how the creation of a profile in a digital repository has increased the visibility and readership of her works.
The author has published several peer-reviewed articles and a book chapter over the past nine years, as sole author, co-author, and group author, in the field of library and information science. This poster should encourage faculty and staff of all disciplines and will focus on the scholarly communications aspect for this conference.
