Writing & Publishing a SoTL Project

Writing

Six Standards of Scholarly Work
Assessment questions and issues that your write-up of your study should address.

Writing About Your Evidence
Information on writing about the evidence you have collected and summarized/analyzed. From step 8 of the Research Project Builder.

Publication

One of the main reasons for doing SoTL research is to publish and/or share the results with other educators and researchers; to make your work public. Every discipline or field has their own standards of writing and scholarship, but SoTL is an interdisciplinary field and therefore individual journals and conferences can differ on format and other expectations.

Acceptance Rates for Journals
How to obtain more information about specific journals including the acceptance/rejection rates.
