Gifu JALT:

The Ins and Outs of Getting Published

Date: Saturday, May 19th, 2007 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Steve Cornwell, Ed.D., Osaka Jogakuin College

Whether studying for a masters or a doctorate; conducting quantitative or qualitative research, or working as a teacher or administrator, one thing that almost all of us working in education have in common is the need to publish. Many of us live in a publish-or-perish world, and even if we do not feel the pressure to publish, publishing offers a chance to engage with our colleagues about our work.

This presentation will help writers understand the publishing process from selecting a journal and submitting an article to receiving reviewer's feedback and handling revisions. It will discuss what reviewers look for, show samples of feedback that authors receive, and provide advice on what to do if you don't agree with the editor. It will describe specific publishing opportunities available through the Japan Association for Language Teaching (JALT). The format will allow for lots of questions. It might help to look over the submission guidelines at before the presentation though it is not mandatory.

Steve Cornwell is a graduate of the Ed.D. program at TUJ and is Editor of the JALT Journal. In addition to his editing work, he has been an Editorial Advisory Board member for JALT publications, has served on the Publications Committee for TESOL, Inc. and has reviewed manuscripts for various publishers including Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, and MacMillian Education.
