Publishing in peer-refereed journals is essential to success in many research- and evaluation-oriented careers. Publishing in refereed journals also provides an important means to influence evaluation theory, method, and practice. Despite the centrality of publishing to evaluation scholarship, graduate students may have limited opportunities to learn about journals and how their editorial processes work while completing their studies. As part of an effort of the AJE editorial board to encourage paper submissions from students and junior colleagues, I will provide an overview of how the journal's editorial process works and offer advice on how to succeed in publishing work in refereed journals.
