The AEJMC Participatory Journalism Interest Group (PJIG), formerly the Civic and Citizen Interest Group, is participating in the AEJ Midwinter Conference at the University of Oklahoma from Feb. 28 through March 1, 2014.
Abstract submissions: Authors are invited to submit research paper abstracts of between 600 and 800 words (word count excludes author information and references). Abstracts should give a clear sense of relevant literature, research objectives, methodological approach, stage of research project (conceptual, data gathering, data interpreting), findings and conclusions.
Deadline for abstract submissions is Dec. 1, 2013.
Authors of accepted papers will be notified by mid-January 2014. Papers presented at the midwinter conference are also eligible for presentation at the AEJMC Montreal Conference in August. Authors are encouraged to use the midwinter conference as an opportunity to get feedback on their research to improve and finalize it for submission to the national conference.
Authors of accepted abstracts must submit complete papers (not exceeding 30 pages) to the discussant of their conference session at least two weeks before the midwinter conference. The midwinter chair for the relevant group will send authors the names and contact details of the discussant for their session.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the conference to present the paper.
For questions about specific submissions to PJIG, contact Liz Viall, PJIG research chair.
