Snasser Posted April 21, 2010 Share Posted April 21, 2010 I recently read a paper at a conference that is ready for submission for publication (the long version of the paper, that is). After the conference I was approached by one of the organizers who said that s/he is interested in organizing an edited collection related to our common research interests. This person typically works with very well respected publishers. This would *not* be a conference proceedings, but a book published independently and subject to peer review as any other book would be. My question is, when thinking strategically, which is going to help my career in the long run: a paper in a respected journal (but not *the very best* journal - I plan to wait for dissertation material to be ready for submission to these) or a chapter in an edited collection (highly respected editor, very good/ one of the best academic publishing houses in my field)? I should also add that I would really like to eventually apply for a Post-Doc in this person's department. Any thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
