Publishing strategies

This page hosts a few blog posts I have written on how to develop a Publications Planner, how to plan a research trajectory, how to work through a Revise-And-Resubmit, all of these strategies needed for publication.

How to respond to a Revise-And-Resubmit – A full-fledged process
I have written a lot of blog posts on how to write a letter of response to editors, how to craft a Drafts Review Matrix, how to plan your time to deal with R&Rs using backcasting, and how to deal with editors’ and reviewers’ comments. But this particular blog post articulates all of these other posts into a sequential, coherent, cohesive strategy.

On “impostor syndrome” and “FOBMO” (Fear Of Being Missed Out) – the “Publish A LOT” strategy
In this blog post, I explain how I followed a “Publish A Lot” strategy for Fear of Being Missed Out (FOBMO), and why it may not be such a good idea.

Designing and implementing a Publications Planner
For academics, planning a publications pipeline is a challenging task. Which article or book needs to be written first to comply with some artificial deadline? In this post I present how I design a Publications Planner. I also offer other smart colleagues’ suggestions on how they plan their own research output.

An improved version of the Drafts Review Matrix.
This is a better version of my original Drafts Review Matrix (DRM) and it is a lot more comprehensive than the previous one.

Backcasting a Revise-And-Resubmit (R&R)
In this post, I explain how I apply backcasting (reverse planning) to my Revise-And-Resubmit (R&R) process.

Dealing with rejected papers and Revise-and-Resubmits (R&Rs) with purpose
This blog post describes my systematic approach to dealing with rejected papers and with revise-and-resubmits. I explain a bit about the process I follow to absorb reviewers’ feedback and incorporate it into my revision.
