My Writing Productivity Pipeline - by Erin Marie Furtak
"Write a lot, and often, we are told — but no one shows us how to keep track of all that work. ... Senior scholars in my department advised me to start thinking about my manuscripts as occupying different places in a pipeline, with proposals on one end and published articles at the other. The goal: Keep your papers distributed along that pipeline, and flowing through." (Chronicle of Higher Education)
Managing Your Research Pipeline - by Matthew J. Lebo
"A researcher’s 'pipeline' refers to the progression of papers from the idea stage to the publication stage. Tenure-track faculty and graduate students often are advised that a busy pipeline is the way to tenure. However, ...not much direction is given to junior scholars regarding how they should think about and manage their research pipeline. How does one develop a large number of papers from their first stages to the pages of respected journals?" (PS: Political Science)
