The publication process can mystify both new and experienced researchers. In this FCI roundtable, the facilitators will seek to “demystify” the problems associated with the publication of journal articles in peer-reviewed journals. Three knowledgeable facilitators, Dr. Melanie Shoffner, editor of English teaching, Dr. Cathryn Molloy, incoming co-editor of Rhetoric of health and medicine, and Dr Charles Bailey, editor-in-chief of Behavioral research in accounting, will offer their “Top 3” insights into the journal article publishing process at the start of the event, followed by an invitation to engage with the public. Dr. Ed Brantmeier, incoming editor for the Peace Journal Education, will act as the moderator of the conversation.


  • Melanie Shoffner, Ph.D., Middle, Secondary and Mathematics Education;
  • Cathryn Molloy, Ph.D., writing, rhetoric and technical communication;
  • Charles Bailey, Ph.D., Accounting; and
  • Ed Brantmeier, Ph.D., CFI and Training in Learning, Technology and Leadership.
