Publishing strategy

This publishing strategy is working and an academic journal has accepted my paper for publication!  Wey-hey!  Am I pleased!  It is less than a year since I finished my PhD and someone wants to publish my work.

A few months ago, here, I mused on whether I should publish in journals or whether a conference was a publication.  My strategy was to present at conferences, get feedback and edit my writing in order to get an acceptable paper to publish.  Last year I presented at the Academy of Management biennial conference of the Management Consulting Division.  Earlier this year, I presented at the UKAIS conference.  My examiner was in the audience.

A couple of weeks later, said examiner emailed me to ask if, given review feedback I could revise the paper by 1st May for the possibility of its being accepted for a special issue of the relevant journal in August.   Ex-supervisors and I have been working on a paper for a different journal at the same time as I was preparing the conference paper, but you can’t publish similar papers because that’s self-plagiarism.  So we worked the two papers together, addressing the review feedback – thank you to the reviewers – and put it together in time.  It was accepted.

Not only that, but as a consequence of preparing for that research interview a few weeks ago a colleague told me of a strategy-as-practice workshop that was looking for papers and realised that my research had aspects that might be relevant.  I proposed a paper and proposal was accepted.  The full paper is now written and uploaded.  With feedback from the workshop in June maybe we (supervisors & I) can write another paper this year.
