From the Editor

Although a self-confessed atheist, Isaac Asimov once wrote, ‘from my close observation of writers ... they fall into two groups: 1) those who bleed copiously and visibly at any bad review, and 2) those who bleed copiously and secretly at any bad review.’

As the editor of the journal of the South African Theological Seminary, such sentiments resonate with my experiences. I have learned to appreciate the emotional and spiritual turmoil that young authors experience upon the receipt of a critical and disparaging review from a senior scholar. Such feelings of inadequacy are not reserved to junior scholars alone. Numerous scholars experience feelings of inadequacy and disappointment after publishers reject their publication proposals. It is from within this academic context that two of the Seminary’s most senior and seasoned authors penned two resource articles that may assist and encourage young academics to enter the academic arena and publish their work.

The first postgraduate resource, written by William Domeris, hopes to assist and embolden young scholars to turn their thesis into an academic article. The second resource was written by Dan Lioy, and it is aimed at those seeking to publish their theses or dissertations as an academic book or monograph.
