In this chapter we take up writing and publication in the broad sense of sharing your findings with other researchers, those affected by your research, and those who have contributed to it. In other words, with a great research project coming to completion, it is time to write up your findings for your field. Your “field” is the audience for your argument. Your field may be your professor, your class, your department, your discipline, others interested in the same question, others interested in related questions, or your aunt who has always wondered what interested you. You define your field and its boundaries. You may share your findings in a course paper, an article, a book, a research report, a presentation, an Op-Ed piece, a blog, a website, a video, etc. The possibilities are endless. We focus on the first three forms of writing for an academic audience, and give some attention to other forms of writing as a feminist research ethic guides us to consider these.
