[Paper Call] 2018 AEJMC Southeast Colloquium

2018 AEJMC Southeast Colloquium
Call for Papers, Panels and Research-in-Progress Abstracts

Authors are invited to submit research papers, panel proposals and/or research-in-progress abstracts for the 43rd Annual AEJMC Southeast Colloquium, which will be held March 8-10, 2018 at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Ala.   Authors should prepare submissions as either Microsoft Word or PDF file and submit them to the following link: http://tinyurl.com/y97anqzz

All submissions must be completed by no later than 11:59 p.m. CST on December 11, 2017. Submissions must be original and must not have been previously presented at a conference.  Students and faculty should indicate their status for consideration of faculty and student top paper awards. Do not include any author identifying information on any page of the paper submission. Authors also should redact identifying information from the document properties. On the cover page of the attached paper, only the title of the paper should appear. Following the cover page, include a 250-word abstract. Length of papers should not exceed 30 pages including references and tables (50 pages for Law and Policy papers).

The author of each accepted paper (at least one author in the case of a co-authored paper) must present the paper at the Colloquium or it will not be listed in the final program. Acceptance and/or submission of papers to colloquium paper competitions does not prevent authors from submitting to AEJMC divisions for the AEJMC Annual Conference in August. Complete contact information and a complete list of (all) authors must be submitted with other material (and on deadline) or a paper will be disqualified. For online instructions on “how to submit a clean paper” for blind review, see this link. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by early February 2018.    In the meantime, read more about the event at the Colloquium website at https://cis.ua.edu/sec18/


Panel proposals using the same link by Monday, December 11, 2017, and should include a brief description of the panel along with proposed panelists. Proposals should not exceed three double-spaced pages.


The Colloquium will include our first research-in-progress roundtables as an opportunity for researchers to share and get feedback on projects that are in some stage of development.  Authors must submit a synopsis of the project, with some research questions or hypotheses and a paragraph explain what stage of development the project is in.   Research chairs will determine how many abstracts can be programmed based on development of research strategy, clarity of research goals and available slots in the roundtable.   Research-in-Progress abstracts are NOT eligible for Colloquium research awards.
