As part of my research into publishing and anthropology, I’m looking for stories about getting published.
I’d love to hear about your first publishing experience (especially if you are an anthropologist, but I welcome stories from all academics). What inspired you to try and publish an article? At what point in your academic career did you start on it? What obstacles did you run into? How did the article change during the review process?
I’d also love to hear about responses to the publication. How was the response? Who did you write the article for, and where did you chose to publish it? Did you decide on place to publish, or a topic, first?
Who do you write for, and who do you want a response from?
Do you ever want to edit those publications? Update/fix/correct them?
If this stirs some memories, please share them here!
