Persist and Publish

Helpful Hints for Academic Writing and Publishing

by Ralph Matkin and T. F. Riggar

"I know of no other publication that provides as much practical, readily usable information about the complex factors pertinent to publishing academic material."

—Robert L. Terrrell, University of Colorado at Boulder


Persist and Publish provides a clear, concise understanding of the requirements for successful academic writing. Not aimed at any particular field, this book will be useful to faculty writing and publishing in all academic areas. The authors demystify the teaching-research-service paradigm and discuss the relationships among professional academic activities, the essential skills needed to write, research on how much time professionals spend on writing, the niceties of academic collaboration, and other pertinent topics.
