Publishing during PhD candidature

  1. 1. HDR Seminar: Publishing in the Humanities and Social Sciences Prof. Andy Bennett (a.bennett@griffith.edu.au) Brady Robards (b.robards@griffith.edu.au) Chris Driver (christopher.driver@gmail.com)
  2. 2. Who are you? • Name • Program – Your ‘tribe’ or discipline • Do you have any publications ‘in the bag’? Any ‘in the pipes’? How confident are you with peer-reviewed academic publishing right now? On a scale of 1 to 5… 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 (Not confident at all) (Very confident)
  3. 3. Overview • Part I: Publishing from your thesis (Andy) • Part II: Publishing with your supervisor (Brady) • Part III: Publishing alone with guidance from your supervisor (Chris) • Part IV: Q&A and discussion
  4. 4. Part I: Publishing from your thesis • Why publish? – Griffith’s (newly revised) expectations. – From HDR student to ECR post-doc or ECR lecturer in the contemporary academic environment. “Higher degree research students are required to publish during candidature as a means of disseminating their findings and developing their writing skills… must be peer reviewed…”
  5. 5. Where to publish? • Tips on targeting journals with… – Alignment to academic discipline of researcher – Prestige within the specific field of the researcher – Good citation rate
  6. 6. How to publish from your thesis • Think strategically, e.g. articles shouldn’t just be a chunk from the thesis but need to be crafted into self-contained papers. • Consider your audience(s). – Who reads the journal you are targeting? – Is it a special issue? – Is it a book chapter in an edited collection?
  7. 7. Outcomes • Useful to think about generating 2 – 3 (or more) papers from thesis. • Should you turn your thesis into a book? What might that book look like compared to the thesis? – Targeting publishers • What is the state of the academic monograph today?
  8. 8. Part II: Publishing with your supervisor • Establishing the basis for collaboration: – Finding common ground. This can be a different process for a co- author relationship than it is for a supervisor-student partnership. – Trialling the paper at an earlier stage at a conference. – Drawing out the original material from student’s research that builds on and develops research by the supervisor.
  9. 9. Establishing parameters • Who writes what, how much, and how will this reflect in the name order of authors on the publication? • Deciding on the language and framing of that research, e.g. was it a research team throughout or has the supervisor only been directly involved in the analysis? • Agreeing on a timeframe for development and submission, and revising that timetable or future avenues of publication depending on the journal’s initial response.
  10. 10. Managing the process • Who will deal with the administrative back-and- forward with the journal? • Draw on the experience of the supervisor to deal with criticism. Learn (through your supervisor) how and when to stand your ground with reviewer feedback. • Develop an effective dialogue with journal editors where possible (this can be a networking exercise).
  11. 11. A slight detour… Technologies of distribution and tracking

  13. 13. Taking ownership of and responsibility for your own work and career • Learning trajectories of writing to publish • Supervisors’ are resources, not HR specialists • Do your research: get across the predominant journals in your field and be able to discuss them • Helpful to think about publishing as narrative practice: what do I want to communicate here?
  14. 14. When and where to publish: supervisors’ advice and the politics of scholarly journal positioning • Thinking about publishing as a way of building a research profile and an academic identity • Getting a feeling for journals in the field: thinking about the fit of your work and the political outcomes • What do you want out of the PhD? What kinds of doors to you want to open with publishing? • Seeking and critically evaluating supervisors’ advice and ‘destination’ recommendations
  15. 15. Negotiating your responsibilities and the obligations of supervisors in the article writing and revisions process • Writing for publication is hard and represents a huge investment of time from you and your supervisor/s • Getting your responsibilities and expectations out in the open: surprises cause awkwardness • Things you should be doing to lessen the burden of supervision and get real feedback on article revisions • Supervisor; not God. Being critical about your own work and others’ opinion of your work
  16. 16. Understanding reviewers’ comments: playing the ‘game’ of peer-reviewed journal publishing • The reality of the peer-review process: being realistic about feedback • Coping with rejection and playing the ‘game’ of publishing • Timely revisions DO matter – there is no obligation on reviewers to accept revised papers and this can cause you problems
