Writing a Journal Article in 12 Weeks

Using Wendy Laura Belcher’s Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks: A Guide to Academic Publishing Success, members of this Faculty Learning Community (FLC) support one another in their individual quests to have an article accepted for publication in an academic journal. The FLC members meet for one hour each week for the entire semester to discuss progress and provide assistance to one another. Participants receive a copy of the book and professional development funds of $250. Each week participants read a chapter and complete the associated writing tasks. Chapters include advice related to topic and journal selection, strengthening the structure of the article, presenting evidence, providing feedback, editing, and responding to journal decisions.
