Publication publication

Quote of the day today is from Gary King in a paper titled ‘Publication, Publication’ on ways to approach academic writing for publication:

Your point should unambiguously answer the question: Whose mind are you going to change about what? If that question isn’t answered, then you’re not making a contribution and there’s little reason for the paper to be published. (p.119)

Thanks to Tobias.

One Comment to “Publication publication”

  1. In welcher Beziehung wäre die Welt anders, wenn diese oder jene Alternative wahr wäre? Wenn ich nichts finden kann, das anders würde, dann hätte die Alternative keinen Sinn […]. Es ist erstaunlich, zu sehen, wie viele philosophische Kontroversen in dem Augenblick zur Bedeutungslosigkeit herabsinken, wo Sie dieselben dieser einfachen Probe unterwerfen, in dem sie nach den konkreten Konsequenzen fragen.

    -William James-
    isn’t is similar?
