Welcome to the Office of Scholarly Publications at Georgetown University, informally known as Booklab!
Book and Article Groups for Faculty
Faculty scholars are matched with a maximum of four colleagues from other departments. In weekly meetings they enjoy the structure of a clear schedule, along with ambitious goals and deadlines. Organizational principles are based on the Franklin/Covey FOCUS program, and books by well-published scholars, plus Carole Sargent's direct experience over years with how and why faculty publish scholarly work in successful and even award-winning ways.
This proven, research-based process works for any book--even older, abandoned projects. Every accepted participant will end the summer with completed output that well exceeds goals set in May.
If you are a member of Georgetown University's faculty and would like to apply, please send a blank e-mail to Booklab, subject line GROUPS, for more information and an application.
