As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

Picking Up on an Old Idea

Okay, this is picking up on something from what seems like year's ago, but was only from the Spring. Anyway, in the Spring, a bunch of us had the following conversation (and this is pretty close to the order in which things appeared):

Okay... Now that you are up to speed (or re-freshed - depending on whether or not you followed the original conversation), I am current at the 19th Annual Conference on Interdisciplinary Qualitative Studies and just left this session:

Mentoring Qualitative Research Authors Globally: The Qualitative Report Experience
Ronald J. Chenail, Nova Southeastern University

Authoring quality qualitative inquiry is a challenge for most researchers. A lack of local mentors can make writing even more difficult. To meet this need, The Qualitative Report (TQR) has helped authors from around the world develop their papers into published articles. TQR editorial team members will discuss their philosophy of author development; challenges working worldwide; solutions for managing differences; manuscript development strategies; authors’ feedback; and the collective global futures of TQR and qualitative researchers.

TQR's manuscript development strategies from initial submission to final publication

Sitting through this session, I was reminder of the conversation that I tried to trace above. If you go and look at their Article Submission Guidelines and A Guide for TQR Authors (particularly this second link), while it isn't exactly what we were driving at in the conversation above, it is a step in the right direction.

Their paper for this was a wonderful description of the e-journal and its publication process - which I will be contacting them to get their permission to post or link (if they have it online) here. But in any regard, I was thinking that this process described by The Qualitative Report may be a starting point for getting this conversation going again.
