About the book:

Author Herbert J. Klausmeier has written this manual to assist authors through the writing and publication process. Research Writing in Education and PsychologyFrom Planning to Publication: A Practical Handbook covers the steps involved from first planning to write up a study to drafting the paper and submitting it to a journal editor. Topics covered range from the nuts-and-bolts of writing that include style questions, correct use of grammar, and heading consistency. These are followed by practical tips on submitting a finished manuscript to a publisher and conforming to journal specifications. The Handbook begins with a discussion of evaluating the quality of a study to be written, selecting a journal for submission, and observing ethical principles. It then goes on to preparing the manuscript with helpful suggestions on writing the outline, following a writing style that conforms to APA publication standards. There is a chapter on responding successfully to editorial review when a manuscript is accepted on condition of revision or when it is rejected. The Appendices offer extensive examples of reference citations in text and in reference lists. Sample lists are provided in both Chicago Manual of Style and Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association format. This Handbook will be of benefit to researchers, graduate students, faculty members, and practitioners who are delving into the publication process to advance their research theories.
