About the Author

Paul J. Silvia, PhD, is the Lucy Spinks Keker Excellence Professor at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He received his doctorate in psychology from the University of Kansas in 2001. Among many other things, he studies the psychology of creativity and the arts, particularly how people come up with good ideas and why they find art interesting, appealing, and awe-inspiring. He received the Berlyne Award, an early-career award given by the Society for the Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts, for his research on aesthetic emotions, and he later served as president of the Society. His other books include Exploring the Psychology of Interest (2006); Public Speaking for Psychologists: A Lighthearted Guide to Research Presentations, Job Talks, and Other Opportunities to Embarrass Yourself (2010, with David B. Feldman); and Write It Up: Practical Strategies for Writing and Publishing Journal Articles (2015). In his free time, Dr. Silvia restores vintage pocket watches, plays board and card games, and enjoys not writing.

Reviews

"Do you find your grant-writing intruding on time you'd rather spend with your family? Did revisions to that last journal article ruin your vacation? Then this book might be just the thing you need... tips and tricks hold true for academics in almost any field...Silva backs up all his recommendations with evidence from behavioral studies and personal experience that is often as witty as it is insightful." --Edgeforscholars.org

"Tips to increase your productivity and a surprisingly good section on grammar." --Thesiswhisperer.com

"Silvia draws from his own experience in psychology to explain how to write, submit, and revise academic work, from journal articles to books, all without sacrificing evenings, weekends, and vacations. The tips and strategies in this second edition... have been fully updated to apply to academic writing in most disciplines." --Midwest Book Review
