Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences
Author: Jackson, Gerald; Lenstrup, Marie;
The biggest hurdle for junior scholars looking to embark on an academic career is to make the transition from PhD candidate to that first (ideally tenured) job. An imperative part of this process is getting published and yet - increasingly - this is becoming something harder to achieve.

This book aims to guide would-be authors through some of the pitfalls and complexities of getting published. In addition, it looks at the changes sweeping through academic publishing and, as a result, discusses self-publishing, e-publishing, web logs, and other alternatives to the traditional publishing model.

Although it is in part a practical guide to navigating all stages of the publication process, Getting Published is not simply another 'how to' guide. Rather, its key concern is to give its readers an understanding of the stages, processes and pitfalls involved in getting from an idea in one's head (or indeed an PhD thesis on one's desk) to a published academic book in a colleague's hand. With better knowledge, would-be authors have greater control over their situation.
