    • Abstract:
      I focus on answering practical “how to” questions on scholarly publishing for aspiring and newly hired faculty members in criminal justice and criminology in this article. I begin by establishing the importance of developing a research agenda and publications that flow from it in a faculty member’s distribution of effort. After describing several possible forms that publications take, I discuss the process of taking an idea for a paper from conception to potential acceptance, emphasizing the need for understanding and targeting appropriate outlets for it. I suggest that developing a research agenda may be accomplished by focusing intensively on a particular topic or by studying a variety of intellectual issues in the field. The importance of reflecting on and contributing to debates within the profession is also mentioned. [ABSTRACT FROM PUBLISHER]
