The Art and Science of Scholarly Publishing

May 27, 2014 09:00 AM

Journal of Policy Analysis and Managment Editor Maureen Pirog shares some key principles to keep in mind when pursuing publication of scholarly work.

First and foremost, publishing is a skill, just like statistics, econometrics, policy modeling, or grant writing. It is usually assumed that doctoral students and new Ph.D.s know how to publish simply because they had read so many articles. The consumption and production of published research, just like understanding and speaking a foreign language, requires different skill sets. How to publish in top journals is not taught per se in most Ph.D. programs. Over the years, in my role as editor of JPAM, I have designed a top 10 list of things that prospective authors should and should not do if they want to publish their work. This is what I am sharing now. It is meant to be constructive, and hopefully, it will be useful for some people.
