Description Librarians who provide service to distance education patrons have a lot of knowledge that they could share with the wider profession by publishing. Fortunately, this is easy to do. This paper provides information on the different kinds of publishing that are available, from book reviews to submitting articles to peer-reviewed journals. It also offers advice on how to find the right journal to submit to including looking at factors such as the audience, prestige, and length of time to publication for the journal. Further, this paper includes tips on what to do when submitting a manuscript, including the query letter, following author guidelines, and proof reading. It also has ideas on how to respond to comments from editors and peer-reviewers. Finally, this paper covers what to do when a manuscript is rejected and examines non-traditional publishing options such as blogs and Wikis.
