Book chapter

P. 298-316.

Although research and writing for publication are seen as important responsibilities for most graduate students and faculty, many struggle to understand the process and how to succeed. Unfortunately, writing centers at most universities do not cater to the research and publishing needs of graduate students and faculty, but instead to course-specific needs of undergraduate students. This chapter aims to describe initiatives undertaken to address the scholarly writing and publication needs of graduate students and strategies and programs for the improvement of scholarly writing and provide insight into the kind of learning that can take place in a university writing center. This chapter may be especially helpful to educators who seek to create services at their own institutions for graduate students
