Where to Publish

Traditional Disciplinary Publications

If you're looking for venues to publish your traditional disciplinary research, consult your librarian.  


Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and Other Pedagogical Scholarship

If you're looking for venues to publish your SoTL or other pedagogical scholarship, visit Kennesaw State University's helpful Teaching Journals Directory.  The directory is organized alphabetically, but notice the drop-down menus on the righthand side of the page. You can search for teaching-related journals in two helpful ways:

  • By Discipline (Thankfully, KSU's directory has a fairly robust list of different disciplines.)
  • By Topic (e.g., assessment, community engagement, diversity and inclusion, high-impact practices, technology)

Nancy Chick (Director of the Endeavor Center) is also well versed in many of these publications, so feel free to reach out to her as well. 


Community Engaged Scholarship

To get started, use Kennesaw State University's Teaching Journals Directory and search by topic by selecting "Community Engagement" in the righthand column.  

How to Promote

You've conducted your research and made it public.  Now you want to share it, so relevant audiences are aware of it.  Or you want to make your area of expertise known, so you can be reached by others. How do you do that?

1.  Make your publications, presentations, and other work you'd like to share as accessible as possible.

If eligible, put your work on Rollins Scholarship Online, so it's easily accessed. 

  • What is RSO, and why should you use it? RSO collects and organizes the research and scholarly output of Rollins faculty and students, and makes their work accessible to scholars and researchers worldwide.  See this brochure.
  • How do you submit your work to RSO? Page 8 of this online PDF provides step-by-step submission instructions for Faculty who want to add a published article to RSO.  For more information, contact Rachel Walton (Assistant Professor, Digital Archivist, & Record Management Coordinator).

2.  Make yourself accessible--and searchable.

Create a Google Scholar citations profile

  • What is a Google Scholar profile? It's a simple way to collect and share your publications and citations to them.  After you set it up, you can make it automatically update so it tracks future publications. According to Our Research, this will increase "your scholarly SEO (aka 'googleability'), more easily share your publications with new readers, and discover new citations to your work from across the entire scholarly web." To illustrate, see Nancy Chick's profile here.
  • How do you set it up? See step-by-step instructions here
Create a profile in the Rollins College Expert Guide.
  • What is the Expert Guide? It's searchable database created by the Office of Communications, and it can be searched by faculty and staff as well as the media.
  • How do you set it up?  If you are not already a part of the guide, get added here. Please keep your information up-to-date if you are already listed.

3.  Spread the word.

Make sure the campus knows about your work.
  • Submit it for consideration in Rollins 360, an e-publication for parents, alumni, prospective students, faculty and staff, community members, and the news media.
  • If you host an event on campus related to your work, promote it on the Rollins Event Calendar.
See if the media is interested in your work. 
  • The Office of Communications can assist faculty in media relations in a variety of ways:
    • Propose a media pitch with the Office of Communications.  Email Jo Marie Hebeler (Communications Manager, jhebeler@rollins.edu) with your story ideas, keeping in mind the elements that make a story newsworthy: conflict/controversy, human interest, impact to the media outlet’s audience, prominence, proximity, timeliness, and unusual.
    • Write an opinion editorial piece. The Office of Communications assists faculty in placing op-ed articles in local, statewide, and national newspapers/news sites. They are happy to review and assist with your submission.
    • If you're contacted for a media interview or comment, the Office of Communications can assist with information on the reporter and media outlet that contacted you, and they can advise you on your approach to the interview and how to prepare if you’ll be on camera. They can also be present during interviews, if you like.
    Contact the Lauren Bradley (Senior Director of Strategic Communications) or Jo Marie Hebeler (Communications Manager) for further details or assistance.
