How do I get a paper published in an academic journal?
The writing stage1) Focus on a story that progresses logically, rather than chronologically. 2) Don’t try to write and edit at the same time. 3) Don’t bury your argument like a needle in a haystack. 4) Ask a colleague to check your work. 5) Get published by writing a review or a response.
How long does it take to get an academic article published?
The time from submission to publication of an academic paper can vary greatly. Usually (in the humanities) it takes the editor and reviewers about 48 months to read your submission and get back to you. If you receive a revise and resubmit it may take another 24 months to hear back on the revised article.
Can you do research without a degree?
Theoretically, yes, but it’s unlikely. You don’t have to have a degree to publish in a reputable peer reviewed journal, but you will still be put through the same rigorous standards that are often not satisfied by people with Phds and years of experience.
