Session Submission Type: Workshop


Particularly for qualitative researchers, books are a major pathway for sharing the results of their work with the discipline. Yet, many younger scholars (particularly at institutions with a teaching mission) it is most unclear how they should go about the process of publishing a book. This workshop will provide invaluable information for many scholars, particularly younger scholars, for them to draw on as they navigate the process of book publishing.


For many scholars who desire to publish a book, the process of finding a publisher can be a mystery. This workshop will help scholars understand the key steps in writing a proposal, the elements of a successful book, the pros and cons of different presses, and the steps involved in publishing a book.
