Writing for Publication

Writing for Publication

This guide includes resources and materials that may be helpful to you as you begin to think about writing for publication. Writing for publication can mean writing a journal article, a book chapter, a book, or any other piece that is intended to be shared with a wide audience. Depending on your field, you may also want to consult resources that discuss publishing in your specific area.


Writing for publication is different than writing for a class or an assignment. You will want to think carefully about your goals for publishing, and also about the organizational structure you plan to use. It's also essential to give careful consideration to the requirements and standards of your field.

Happily, there are many resources available online and through the Library's holdings that can help you. We are always happy to hear from you if / when you have questions.

Happy writing and publishing!
