Getting published. An author, reviewer, and editor perspective.

Publishing your research in an academic journal is a difficult but necessary part of being a researcher and/or an academic. Over the years I’ve observed the publishing process as an author, a reviewer, and most recently an editor. Here are some of my thoughts on that process from those perspectives, including some of the pitfalls to avoid.

Getting a job and all that.

As an academic who teaches undergraduate students I have a strong interest in what my students do when they finish university. While I don’t believe that employment should be the only outcome of a university education, it is certainly a high priority for both students and their families. Here are the five things that I think will get you a job:

  • Doing the best you can in your degree(s).
  • Experience.
  • Skills.
  • Knowing those already in the job.
  • Being creative.
