Publishing Advice for Graduate Students - revised

Readers may know of my "Publishing Advice for Graduate Students" (now downloaded over 4,300 times) which is a revised version of an earlier piece here (downloaded 2,855 times). Needless to say, I have been genuinely overwhelmed at the popularity of these papers. Over the past year or two, I have received much helpful feedback that I have used to revise the more recent paper.

You can find the newly revised "Publishing Advice for Graduate Students (Revised" here. The abstract remains:

"Graduate students often lack concrete advice on publishing. This essay is an attempt to fill this important gap. Advice is given on how to publish everything from book reviews to articles, replies to book chapters, and how to secure both edited book contracts and authored monograph contracts, along with plenty of helpful tips and advice on the publishing world (and how it works) along the way in what is meant to be a comprehensive, concrete guide to publishing that should be of tremendous value to graduate students working in any area of the humanities and social sciences."

Please feel free to distribute the new link widely --- this piece is available for free --- and please let me know how it might be further improved in future.
