There is consistent pressure on all academics to publish, publish, publish. But not unless they have been awarded their PhD – considered by most to be the starting step of an academic career. So while the pressure is on to obtain the title, and then obtain a permanent position, and then publish journal articles, there is little support available to researchers in the nascent stage of their careers. Publishing from Your PhD precisely focuses on providing early career researchers with emotional and collegial support that is often not available in academe. It seeks to dispel nepotistic notions of superiority that places Professors and such on a pedestal. It specifically clarifies the difficulty in having written the PhD thesis and then rewriting it to suit the genre of journal articles. It does not deal with the 'how' of academic writing in general. This book endeavours to shed light on the path one must take to navigate the jungles of academia. This is an untrodden path which is unique to every researcher – especially those who employ abstract or critical theories in their research – and each journey through the jungle is different. However, because there is little literature about this embryonic journey, this book illuminates the processes and difficulties of publishing in journals and culling one's finely honed thesis into small chunks – a difficult task to which few admit.

Since 2003, the Future Combat System (FCS) program has been the centerpiece of the Army¿s efforts to transition to a lighter, more agile, and more capable combat force. In 2009, however, concerns over the program¿s performance led to the Secretary of Defense¿s decision to significantly restructure and ultimately cancel the program. As a result, the Army has outlined a new approach to ground force modernization. This report: (1) outlines the Army¿s preliminary post-FCS plans; and (2) identifies the challenges and opportunities the DoD and the Army must address as they proceed with Army ground force modernization efforts. The report evaluated FCS equipment, and interviewed DoD and Army officials. Includes recommendations. Illustrations.
