Scholarly Publication in a Changing Academic Landscape focuses on ways contingent faculty members can join scholarly conversations by making public the work they are already engaged in and how they might publish their way into increased fulfillment and increased job security. Recognizing that contingent faculty often find few opportunities to enroll in publication courses, take advantage of professional development and mentoring sessions, or find allies and peers within their departments, this volume outline the realities of contingent employment and offers concrete advice for maintaining a research and publishing agenda, even without department support. The authors suggest ways to work within the present system, offering concrete strategies for engaging in professional development opportunities and disseminating research findings.
