Writing for Publication: Transitions and Tools that Support Scholars’ Success - Mary Renck Jalongo, Olivia N. Saracho 2016
Five Steps from Presentation to Publication
From Attending to Presenting at Conferences
Conference Proposals and Article Types
Although professional conference presentations play a role in tenure, promotion, and other types of evaluations of faculty members, many people learn how to write conference proposals primarily through trial and error. Others have the advantage of support from an experienced, successful presenter to orient them to the process, collaborate with them, and/or supply them with examples to follow. Still others approach making presentations as they would conducting a review of the literature; they search for published resources that will provide them with guidance on how to get on the conference program and ways to be more effective when they actually lead a session.
Rowley (2012) offers a five-step sequence for transitioning from a conference presentation to a published article as depicted in Fig. 4.1.
