Description

Product Description

“Wow. No one ever told me this!” Wendy Laura Belcher has heard this countless times throughout her years of teaching and advising academics on how to write journal articles. Scholars know they must publish, but few have been told how to do so. So Belcher made it her mission to demystify the writing process. The result was Writing Your Journal Article in Twelve Weeks, which takes this overwhelming task and breaks it into small, manageable steps. For the past decade, this guide has been the go-to source for those creating articles for peer-reviewed journals. It has enabled thousands to overcome their anxieties and produce the publications that are essential to succeeding in their fields.

With this new edition, Belcher expands her advice to reach beginning scholars in even more disciplines. She builds on feedback from professors and graduate students who have successfully used the workbook to complete their articles. A new chapter addresses scholars who are writing from scratch. This edition also includes more targeted exercises and checklists, as well as the latest research on productivity and scholarly writing.

Writing Your Journal Article in Twelve Weeks is the only reference to combine expert guidance with a step-by-step workbook. Each week, readers learn a feature of strong articles and work on revising theirs accordingly. Every day is mapped out, taking the guesswork and worry out of writing. There are tasks, templates, and reminders. At the end of twelve weeks, graduate students, recent PhDs, postdoctoral fellows, adjunct instructors, junior faculty, and international faculty will feel confident they know that the rules of academic publishing and have the tools they need to succeed.

Review

For this reviewer, speaking as an editor and peer reviewer, I would be delighted if every article I were presented with had been through the Belcher process. Writing Your Journal Article in Twelve Weeks really does address every single aspect of preparing a manuscript for publication that you could possibly wish for. At 28x21.5cm/11x8.5" and weighing in at 1k/2.5lb the hard copy is definitely one for your bookshelves rather than your pocket, but in terms of providing the structure, task schedule and deadlines to get your article into publishable form it is ideal. No stone is left unturned, the style is accessible and the attention to detail will help dispel anxiety and build confidence. Highly recommended. --Amanda J. Haste, The Independent Scholar (2021)

Some second editions have new prefaces and a new chapter or two. But this new edition has so much new material that it really is an entirely new book--with all the virtues of the first edition. The first edition had about 320 pages, excluding notes, bibliography and index. This new one has 400 pages, excluding end materials, and the print is smaller, so it''s really more than 100 more pages worth of new material. The changes come out of Belcher''s experience of countless people who have used the original workbook. I love how she separates out some field specific advice--for humanists, for social scientists and for scientists (she''s added material for scientists, who were not part of the first book). She''s rearranged, reorganized and changed the topics for the twelve weeks in ways that look like they''ll work even better. This is an even better resource than the first edition, and worth every penny of its hefty price.

In my role as Reader and Chair of an International Jury to award Scholarly Articles, I have seen a great need for both editions of Dr. Belcher''s book over the years. Her writing is masterful in both and this second edition isn''t a retelling of the first. One of the beauties of her workbook is a timeline of ''tasks'' that not only encourages rigor (e.g., claims for significance and analyzing evidence) but does so with a tone of humanity, humor and ease of telling stories all writers will recognize! For example, a story from one of her students (paraphrasing), "I was writing and then somehow I found myself sweeping the kitchen floor!" [I am still laughing as I write this review!] Another example is the story of a seasoned writer who literally takes off his belt and ties himself to the desk chair! Oh my goodness ... while I love writing and teaching, I consider both endeavors "giving blood," but these two stories are priceless! A terrific book for all scholarly writers as well as undergraduate students to Masters and Doctoral students. Highly recommend.

I stumbled upon Dr. Belchers work because I recently graduated with my doctorate degree. As a doctor, researcher, and scholar... I feel it is very important to not only celebrate (yay!!!) the fact that I made it through such a rigorous process, but to in fact, add to my field. This is done by publishing peer reviewed journal articles. It is also, important to help strengthen a CV. Ok so, I got together a group of newly mented doctors, and we all needed direction. as well as guidance. I stepped out and purchased Dr. Belchers book. I am so pleased. My group have all purchased too. So, not only is it chocked full of very explicit instructions...it is clearly written and designed in a way that a student''s mind can articulate. It is devised with weekly time tables/frames and helpful Appendices as well. This resource is very well coordinated to help take one from A to Z.

Wonderful book for revising a (rough) draft of a paper. I enjoyed the first edition but the revised edition is even better! I conduct social science research and this book provides valuable advice and structure. Get it and use it!

WARNING! Although the ISBN matches the second edition and the cover says "second edition," this is NOT the second edition. And now, halfway though my writing workshop, I am missing an entire chapter. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER.

I want to give this a five for the content, but the book itself is so smelly I can''t read it. It gives me a headache. I needed this immediately for a writing workshop, but it''s useless to me. If you are sensitive to chemicals, be prepared to have to let this out gas for three weeks or so. But I''ve read a couple of chapters electronically through another source, and it''s a really helpful book.

I received a version printed by Amazon (UK). I''m sorry to say this, but the font in the book for many headlines and tables looks unconventional. Round brackets are like commas, the small caps ''t'' is cut off, capital W and Y look funny. Some tables are hardly readable. It''s not consistent, some of the letters are fine, others not (in the same table). I wonder if Amazon had a printing problem?

I have published about 20 peer reviewed articles before buying this book, so not ‘new’ but so many people rave about this book in the writing groups I belong to and wanted to check it out. For a ‘newbie’ I think this would be such a great guide. I have been using it to help with with parts of my writing process when I feel ‘stuck’, but haven’t systematically gone through the timeline as I am working to publish data from my thesis and I find my process is a little different. I’m looking forward to using the step by step approach in my upcoming research project. I’m in education/social science and find there is a good mix of discipline and methods specific advice.

***I only skimed the book and the content seems good. This is my review of the condition the book was delievered.*** The physical book was not in new (or even good) condition. Corners were bend and the binding was partialy detached,. There were defects on the pages, one of them had a hole in it and another was badly scratched. I''m really not happy to have paid about 70$ CAD for a "new" book in such condition. I laminated the cover to help protect it so I don''t want to return it, but I''m really unhappy of the product and the price paid for it.
