Getting Tenure (Survival Skills for Scholars)
M. Whicker, J. Kronenfeld, R. Strickland 1993 Sage Publications, Inc
In this book the authors demystify the tenure process, describing steps that can be taken to ensure success as a full time faculty member. They begin by describing how to find out what criteria are used for tenure at an institution: whom to talk to, and what specific information for which to ask. In addition, they explain how to use teaching and service to reinforce research activities, how to document achievements, and how to develop a record that is tenure worthy anywhere. Their ten commandments of tenure success are clear, straightforward, and sensible.
