As a new doctoral student, I reviewed Allen’s (2016) book, Essentials of Publishing Qualitative Research, to determine how the author crafted an accessible text for beginning qualitative researchers as well as more seasoned researchers. The absence of specialized jargon and appropriately inserted comic relief gives this book an inviting feel. The comprehensive coverage from dissertation to article audiences, selecting journals, through to marketing your book makes this a must-have, “publishing for dummies” guide for qualitative researchers that I would describe as the next best thing to handholding through the various phases of publishing.
