Getting Published in Journals

I'm actually at the American Historical Association conference in Washington, DC (where the temperature is a balmy 18 degrees) briefly to participate in a panel session of journal editors:


ting Published: A CLAH Journal Editors’ Workshop

Conference on Latin American History 33
Friday, January 3, 2014: 2:30 PM-4:30 PM
Congressional Room B (Omni Shoreham)

Jurgen Buchenau, University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Peter M. Beattie, Michigan State University
John D. French, Duke University
Kris E. Lane, Tulane University
Jaime E. Rodríguez, University of California, Irvine
Ben Vinson III, George Washington University
Gregory B. Weeks, University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Here is the description:

The Conference on Latin American History (CLAH) is sponsored a journal
editors workshop at the upcoming AHA convention in Washington DC from
2-5 January 2014. With representation from a range of key journals,
brief presentations by editors will offer guidance to
scholars—especially younger ones--as to the expectations and processes
of getting an article published in a top journal in the Latin American
field. This brief opening will be followed by a Question and Answer
session driven by audience concerns.

These sorts of panels are always good to have, especially for graduate students. In political science anyway, and I assume this is becoming more true in other fields, publishing is required earlier and earlier, and so it's good to understand as much you can about the process. Plus, it seems that more colleges and universities that previously might not have required much publishing for tenure/promotion/raises now do.
