Abstract

Qualitative writing is increasing within entrepreneurship research circles. However, writing up qualitative research for publication can be a daunting prospect particularly for early career researchers and PhD candidates coming to grips with researching, writing up complex methodologies and concepts. It takes time and confidence to learn how to write up such research to a standard where publication is a realistic possibility. It also takes time to find ones self in writing and to develop a personalised writing style. This working paper based on the author's experiences in writing and publishing offers some strategies and techniques which early career researchers can utilise to develop their own writing and publishing strategy. The advice is couched in practical terms.
