Summary "Given the current state of the academic job market, many academics who had perhaps originally aimed for university employment are becoming independent scholars-people who continue to work in their academic field but do so with no academic affiliation. Others simply choose not to pursue a career in academia. But being an independent scholar is often a lonely journey, and independent scholars are often considered "less than" because they have no academic affiliation. The contributors to Independent Scholars Meet the World offer the kind of help and advice they wish they had received when setting out on their own paths, such as the importance of networking; remembering that "Leaving is an option, not a failure," and assurance that independent scholars have value"-- Provided by publisher.
