Editorial Reviews

"Because Porter has been so prolific in his own academic life, he offers his experiences and views for the benefit of graduate students, junior professors, and even those with more experience who wish to re-engage their scholarly writing apparatuses. ... I applaud Porter's efforts at demystifying and demythologizing the publishing act."Journal of Scholarly Publishing
