Most of the publishing we do as academics and professional practitioners is likely to be in academic journals in the form of journal articles. While not everything we do or write suits a journal article, and academic journal articles as a published medium are currently under a great deal of scrutiny with regard to quality, accessibility, time to publication and the important issue of impact, none the less they are still by far the most popular and widely accepted way for us to publish our work. This chapter looks at the journey of writing a journal article — from ideas through to publication. Chapter 4 looks at writing for books, and Chapter 14 considers the reviewing and refereeing process in more detail, so these other chapters might well be usefully read alongside this one.
