The Criminologist’s Student Forum featured a piece written by RISC Lab Ph.D. students Nicole Sachs, Alexandra Margevich, and Marina Henein. From their article, “Graduate students are primarily instructed on how to write for the purpose of a course requirement, Master’s thesis, or Doctoral degree qualification; however, they are less likely to receive comprehensive instruction on writing for peer-reviewed journal publication. This is a critical paradox because graduate students’ job market potential (particularly in academia) is largely determined by their number of first author publications in top research journals.”
