Randolph & Nisbitt: Another Dissertation to Publication success story

March 11, 2019

Translating your 300 page dissertation into a 10-12 page article suitable for publishing, is the magic of the Dissertation-to-Publication workshop.  The requirement for the workshop certificate of completion is submission for publication of the finished product in a reputable journal.  Dr. Burl Randolph, Jr., DM in collaboration with his dissertation committee chair, Dr. Kim Nisbett, EdD., is proud to announce the transformation of his dissertation – Mentoring and African American Army Captain Success: A Case study, into an article – Mentoring Leaders Across Race and Gender Lines: Insight from US Army Officers.  The article will be published in the May/June 2019 edition of Global Business and Organizational Excellence (GBOE), and was selected as the Feature Article.  GBOE is published through Wiley Publishing, which maintains rigorous standards for publication.  The article abstract is featured below:

The importance of mentoring to career development is well recognized; yet practice does not always follow theory, often to the exclusion of minorities and women. Interviews with 13 US Army officers representing various backgrounds highlighted several inequities that have been reported in previous organizational research. The inquiry also emphasized the need for organizational leaders to create a common operating picture to improve the execution of their mentoring programs, ensure ongoing mentoring throughout staff members' careers, and identify and eliminate barriers to mentoring based on race or gender. Although such efforts may require a paradigm shift in organizational practices and culture, they are essential to ensuring equity in the workplace, robust leadership development, a high level of commitment and performance, and success at all levels.

Dr. Randolph expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to participant in the Dissertation-to-Publication course.  “As a ghost writer and editor for other peoples articles or books, I look at the work as just that: an article or book.  The Dissertation-to-Publication course gives you a better appreciation for telling your story, and the requirements for making that a compelling story to publish.” Being selected as a Feature Article in any publication is high praise. The author credits the Dissertation-to-Publication course presented by the Center for Educational and Instructional Technology Research (CEITR) College of Doctoral Studies as the impetus to write at a higher level.

Dr. Randolph will also be the Featured Speaker at the CEITR monthly webinar on March 28, 2019.  His topic will be Staying Focused on Your Doctoral Journey.  (Check the Alumni special interest group (SIG) for details).
