Abstract

Universities have an obligation to serve the community in producing knowledge. In addition, the investment of the government in tertiary education in the form of subsidies should be repaid by furthering scientific research. Publication of academic articles is one of the most important ways to communicate research and knowledge produced. Yet more than two years elapse before a researcher's article is published. Publication pitfalls and possible solutions for optimising publishing of academic articles were investigated in a round-table discussion. A metaphor is suggested to better understand and manage academic publication.


Daar rus 'n verpligting op universiteite om die gemeenskap met die produsering van kennis te dien. Die regering se belegging in tersiêre onderrig deur middel van subsidies, behoort in die vorm van wetenskaplike navorsing terug betaal te word. Publisering van akademiese artikels is een van die vernaamste maniere om navorsing en kennis te kommunikeer. Tog verloop daar meer as twee jaar vir 'n navorser om 'n artikel te publiseer. Publikasiehindernisse asook moontlike oplossings vir die optimering van die publikasie van akademiese artikels, is tydens 'n tafelronde bespreking ondersoek. 'n Metafoor om akademiese publikasie beter te verstaan en bestuur, word voorgestel.
