Why not make this the year you write an article for publication? Or, if you have already published, consider writing another article for a different journal or different type of journal. If you usually write practice-based articles for professional journals consider writing an article for a peer-reviewed journal. I've contacted a number of editors from a variety of library journals to get first hand insights and advice for a new section on my blog called "Top Tips from Journal Editors". The first contributor is Valerie Stevenson, who has just stepped down as editor of SCONUL Focus. More editors will share their advice/insights over the coming weeks.
