Sample text

They are usually published as part of a series, most often sponsored by a professional organization, or a research institute or centre. However, there is nothing to stop you from initiating your own working paper series sponsored by the institution or department in which you work in order to take advantage of the ability to transfer ideas relatively quickly into a citable form. Writing for a special issue Special issues or sections in journals are becoming increasingly common. They usually bring together four to eight papers on a related topic, printing them in a single issue, and have a guest editor who organizes the issue/section in conjunction with the journal editors.

Most researchers try to balance submissions between generic and specific journals so that differing audiences see their work. If you choose to send your paper to a specialist journal make sure it fits the aims and objectives of the journal. For example, do not send an article that does not concern gender issues to Gender and Society as it will meet with rejection. If in doubt ask for advice from colleagues or email the editor of the journal in advance of submitting the article and they will advise you.

The citation index reveals the extent to which articles within a journal are cited in other articles (note new journals do not get allocated a rating for a number of years). Publishing in a journal with a ‘high’ citation index can be (but is not always) important for securing tenure and promotion. The citation indices for journals are published by Thomson ISI, a private company that specializes in services to the education sector, and which can usually be accessed through academic libraries (usually under the title Web of Knowledge).
