FIND THE RIGHT JOURNAL
Getting published in a reputable, high-impact academic journal is imperative for an academic job candidate. If you’re not published, you simply won’t be competitive compared to candidates who have had several published papers.
It is important that you find the right journal for your dissertation. Familiarize yourself with the requirements of each specific journal and prepare your paper accordingly. Make sure you know the scope of the journal, the subject, the structure, and the citation format. The same is true if you are preparing a paper for presentation at a conference.
