Cross Chair in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and Professor of Sociology
Many faculty are involved in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). As with other forms of scholarship, SoTL requires that work be shared or made public. We urge SoTL researchers to publish their work. If you are interested in investigating possible publication outlets for SoTL work, we have several general higher education and college teaching journals in the CTLT Resource Commons (101 ITDC). In addition, you can find links to other SoTL publication outlets (general and discipline-specific) on this website.
What follows is a list of suggestions for getting your articles published. These tips come from my experience both as an author submitting to refereed journals and as a past editor of Teaching Sociology. Though all the tips may not always fit your circumstance, discipline or publication outlet, I believe many are useful when preparing and submitting an SoTL article for publication.
