I'm a career professional in the data science field and spent my career focused on information systems and data visualization.
I recently wound up with an adjunct professor role at a local institution. At first things were fine, but now there is a strong pressure for me to publish 'academic works' in scholarly publications and I'm not even really sure what that involves.
I don't necessarily do a lot of dedicated "new" research of anything novel, I just have a deep understanding of the industry and how to apply the practice to fields that others often over look. But, I don't think a really good tutorial on how to do something is a scholarly article.
So for someone who has never written or even read a scholarly publication in their life, and has no idea how to get involved in this, where do I start?
What types of articles merit publication?
Can I do critiques of industry practices? Or case studies? Or do I have to start running double-blind experiments with different businesses to keep my job?
