Within the Academy, itself a changing and increasingly entrepreneurial entity, publishing is no longer an option; it is the universal currency that secures a position, tenure and promotion; it is key to academic life. Providing a panoramic picture of the changing publishing climate, Academic Life and the Publishing Landscape will empower scholars by enabling them to navigate this changing terrain more successfully. This book provides guidance from a range of contributors who use their own wide expertise in writing and publication to document the challenges faced by scholars at different career stages and in different locations. It covers a wide range of debates on publishing, spilt into the following three sections: Mapping the Publication Landscape, Writing for Publication—Learning from Successful Voices, Further Challenges and Possibilities. With topics ranging from the process of preparing manuscripts for publication, including chapters on calculating journal rankings and understanding the Peer Review process, through to chapters on speaking to international audiences and writing for elite international journals, this book offers a unique perspective on how the changing nature of publishing works. This will be a useful guide for scholars across the globe looking to enhance their publication performance, and those questioning what needs to be done in order to understand, navigate and to (re-)position one’s self and institution in this increasingly significant and rapidly altering terrain. Ciaran Sugrue is Professor of Education, University College Dublin, Ireland and has been Head of School from 2011-14. Sefika Mertkan is an Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership and Management at Eastern Mediterranean University.

The first edition of The Action Research Dissertation: A Guide for Students and Faculty was a first-of-its-kind reference, distilling the authors’ decades of action research experience into a handy guide for graduate students. The Second Edition continues to provide an accessible roadmap that honors the complexity of action research, while providing an overview of how action research is defined, its traditions and history, and the rationale for using it. Authors Kathryn Herr and Gary L. Anderson demonstrate that action research is not only appropriate for a dissertation, but also is a deeply rewarding experience for both the researcher and participants. This practical book demonstrates how action research dissertations are different from more traditional dissertations and prepares students and their committees for the unique dilemmas they may face, such as validity, positionality, design, write-up, ethics, and dissertation defense.

After having supervised the 30th doctoral thesis at the University of Lapland, Finland, Professor Kaarina Määttä invited the doctoral graduates and their circle of acquaintances to talk about their experiences of the process of writing a doctoral thesis and their opinions on good supervision and support. What did the dissertation process give and demand? Those who can answer this question are the ones who have defended their doctoral theses as well as the candidates’ spouses and professionals in the scientific community. This book introduces explicitly all the phases of graduating as a doctor, reveals the personal matters concerning doctoral theses, and concretizes the pedagogy of supervising doctoral theses. This book is aimed at doctoral students and their professors as well as everyone who is somehow connected to the dissertation process. The aim of this anthology is to support prospective doctoral students and their supervisors in their dissertation processes.
