The Art of the Academic Article is a self-directed online course devoted to getting your academic journal articles published. The course is divided into ten steps. Each step is devoted to 1) moving you steadily through the standard elements of an article for academic publication and 2) identifying (and overcoming) the mental barriers that keep you from success.
One of the things that we know about the Academy is that it is designed to teach you to think about your work but not necessarily how to do it. Guidance is typically post production feedback framed as "No. Not that way." We created this program to flip the script. It is a guide designed to walk you step by step through not only the thinking but also the practical steps required for an academic journal article. We expect (and hope!) that you will use it over and over again until the process is second nature.
From day one, with manageable steps, we will guide you to an article that positions you in the intellectual conversation you want to be part of. Each step, you will be thinking and working on both long term and immediate goals: How to identify the best journal for your work; the most effective way to position yourself in the intellectual conversation; the essentials you must include in each section to engage your field and the editor. You will learn exactly what you need to include (and avoid!).
In addition to blog posts, worksheets and checklists, the course also includes coaching videos from Jane Jones, PhD, developmental editor and founder of Up In Consulting and Kel Weinhold, productivity coach from The Professor Is In.
Although we often write alone, when we publish we join an intellectual community. In recognition of that tension, in addition to demystifying writing for a journal and providing immediately applicable tools to succeeding in that process, The Art of the Academic Article challenges you to examine your relationship to your field and to step forward into the conversation. To help you identify with whom and where you are in conversation, we ask you to look deeply at the conversation you are joining. In the process of writing your article, you will also be building a positive relationship with your scholarship.

"I can't say enough about the Art of the Article program! The content continues to inspire me to take the time out of my teaching frenzy to sit down with actionable steps and goals and make progress on my publishing goals. Jane and Kel expertly identified and outlined the hard work behind making decisions about where to submit and how to set yourself up to not only get published, but also how to build a support network for constructive feedback, help with future publications, and interpreting revisions and rejections. This is a "system" I will be using for years to come (for articles and a book proposal) and would highly recommend the Art of the Article to any one working toward publication."

"I was one of the beta-testers of the Art of the Article, and I can only say this product is *fantastic*!! Since doing it, I have submitted one journal article and started a new one. I was feeling quite some trepidation starting the new one, then I went back to these materials and it was incredibly helpful to have the clarity of 'first do this' and then 'now do this other thing'. It's a seriously impressive process to get to the product we need - journal articles. Money exceptionally well spent."

This course operates from the position that you have zero content written. You've done your research. You have your results. Now it’s time to write. If you have something done, good for you! You get to skate during that section or work on another section. But we wanted to make it possible for people who have never written an article or been rejected over and over again to stop panicking and get to work!Join Jane and Kel and Get Your Article Published!
