The Art and Science of Scholarly Publishing

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.
