Title: Writing Your Way to Success : Finding Your Own Voice in Academic Publishing
Author: Susan Drake & Glen Jones
Description: There are many books available that will guide the academic to substantive academic writing. However, approximately 85% of publications are written by 15% of the academic population. Many academics experience the writing process as very difficult and painful, and give up writing rather than trying to surmount the obstacles. Writing Your Way to Success takes a fresh look at the publishing game and offers tried and true strategies that allowed two new academics to experience publishing success. It certainly will help you too!
