Being exposed....

My fellowship leave at Belfast is entering its last month, but I am doing more reflecting than packing. It has been a productive time publication wise, with at least seven different pieces -- a couple of solo ventures, but mostly co-authored with various colleagues -- either in print or in the queue for publication. One of the drawbacks of academic writing is that it takes so damn long for any particular work to go from initial presentation to publication. And then it takes a few years before it has any impact -- if then....

I bring this up because the article I was working on as I came to Belfast on "Accountability and the Promise of Performance" was finally published in the March issue of Public Productivity and Management Review, and there it would have languished in relative obscurity were it not for colleague H. George Frederickson who has featured it his May column in the PA TIMES. George's kind words will certainly bring some attention to the piece.

Now if only I get generate as much attention to some of the other work....
