The 100th AEJMC Annual Conference
Closing the Gap: Media, Research and the Profession
2017 Paper Call
The Scholastic Journalism Division of AEJMC is accepting submissions of research papers for the 2017 conference in Chicago.
Papers can be on any topic related to journalism education (at all levels); the student press; media, news, and civic literacy; youth journalism; or related fields.
We welcome submissions from all theoretical and methodological perspectives. Both faculty and student papers accepted will be eligible for top paper awards to be presented at the AEJMC Conference in August. Faculty papers with a student co-author or student papers with a faculty co-author will be judged in the faculty competition. The best papers should be theoretically based, methodologically rigorous, and clearly relate to an issue in journalism and/or civics education.
Expectations for all papers: Papers should be in 12-point type, Times New Roman, double-spaced, with 1-inch mar- gins. Papers should not exceed 25 pages in length, not counting title page, abstract, references, tables, and appendices.
Style should follow either the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association or the Chicago Manual of Style. Include an abstract of no more than 75 words. At least one author will be expected to attend the meeting to present the paper.
All research papers must be submitted online via a link on the AEJMC Website. To ensure a blind review, do not identify the author(s) anywhere in the paper, including the title page and the paper’s properties. (See this how-to article for tips on removing identifying information from document properties). The submission site will ask for author name(s), affiliation(s), and contact information separately.
