I'm still feeling sick, but also anxious, which precludes me from sleeping; so I might as well write this second installment in the academic publishing series. The first is here.

Please note that I am writing about the humanities and social sciences known to me; your corner of academia might well be different.

Today I'm tackling annoying questions 3 and 4:
  • I'll just send it to a lesser journal. Famous Journal will not want me. Peer reviewers are brutal there.
  • I'll just send it out as a book chapter. Famous Journal? You're kidding? I am afraid of peer review.
These are really the same: it's about the fear of peer review.

In academic publishing, rejection is not the norm.... )

Another 500 words on Dybbuk Melody. I have no idea whether it's any good. Probably not. No spec elements in this one so far - two more scenes to write before we get to the spec element. Weird is my middle name.
Still sick but will atempt to teach tomorrow.
