Making Your Research Publishable: Examples from Second Language Writing Research
To publish research articles, many researchers focus on making their manuscript substantive — by identifying viable research questions, by designing an appropriate method, and by presenting sensible analyses. While these are no doubt important considerations, they are not always enough to make a manuscript publishable. In a highly competitive knowledge market, even academic research needs to have a slant that makes it attractive to other researchers. In this lecture, the participants will examine examples from second language writing research to understand what make research articles more appealing to reviewers and fellow researchers.
