Hello Dr. Kebritchi and Dr. Proudfoot:

 

I am hoping to extract a total of three (3) articles from my dissertation that I feel are solid/stand-alone articles.  Is it appropriate (or would you recommend) to focus on one article for the workshop, or attempt to do them in tandem?  I am trying to budget my time and make a writing calendar to be as productive as possible.

 

Thanks again for including me in the workshop and providing this opportunity to doctoral students - very excited to participate 9/5.  Have a good week.

Hello Kristina,

I am also hoping to extract three articles from my dissertation.  Did you get a response to this question?

 

Thank,

Detra

Hello Detra (and all):

I did not get an answer about my question directly.  However, my reviewer and I discussed writing multiple articles and she is willing to work with me on them.  Perhaps it is at the reviewer's discretion?

In either case, what we learn in this workshop can be applied to any and all future written works we produce.  Best of luck to you in the workshop!

 

Respectfully,

Kristina McGaha

Hello Detra, 

As I suggested in my other response, it would be better to focus on one article at the time to be able to better manage your time and effort.  

Hope this clarifies,

Hi Kristina,

Extracting three articles from your dissertation and generating three publishable manuscripts simultaneously can be a challenging/overwhelming task. I would suggest focusing on one article at the time. You may develop your first article by participating in the workshop and learning the skills. Then apply the skills for making the additional articles.    

Hope this helps,

Not sure why you have issue downloading the PDF file. The main part is learning how to join the WebEx meeting. Here are the steps:

 Joining a WebEx meeting when it is about to start

  1. Click the link provided in the email or calendar event. You will be taken to a web page where you can join the meeting. ...

If the citations in my dissertation are greater than five years old, is it appropriate for me to include more recent research that addresses the same subjects of my dissertation? Or, am I constrained to reliance on only the articles cited within my dissertation?

Thank you for this workshop and thank you for including me in it.

 

Blessings,

Nina (9A) Ferguson

I received a recent email stating I am supposed to submit my two target journals to my reviewer by Sept 5. However, I do not recall seeing an email that states who my reviewer is or how I should submit the two journal names. Please advise.

Dear Dr. Kebritchi,

Good day:

I have tried to find a free journal that not will not take long to publish my manuscript.

Do you have any suggestions?

My Manuscript will focus on Educational Leadership and Learning Disability with Technology integration.

Regards,

Henry

Hello Henry,

Thanks for writing. I am going to jump in here and offer some thoughts.  Selecting an appropriate journal is one of the most challenging aspects of publishing. 

Your D2P reviewer should be able to help you find Cabells in the library where you may search for appropriate journals.  Once you have identified and reviewed the mission and goals of the potential journal, then, the next step is to look at the individual journal issues to assure an alignment between your article and their publication records. 

I will check back through here in the next day or two to see if this answer is helpful.  Thanks again for writing and enjoy the day.

Hello Henry

I found an article that might be helpful as you search for the right journal.  You may have to join the Special Interest Group for Dissertation to Publication. Once you join (and the process is very easy), go to resources and materials and click on an articl titled Finding the Right Journal.  I think you will find the document very helpful. .
