Paper Submission Guidelines
Please follow these general organization and format requirements to submit a paper for review.
A paper may be submitted with a lecture or workshop proposal type, but not with the infographic type. If you are also submitting a paper, you must have it ready to upload at time of submission of proposal.
Proposals submitted without a paper cannot be changed to include a paper submission later, due to the strict schedule the peer review committee needs to maintain.
The recommended organization below allows for the flexibility to submit. Here are the sections required:
- Title and Abstract (due to blind review, no author identifiers on papers–identify authors only in presenter fields on the submission form)
- Background, Theory, or Literature Review
- Description of Project or Research Study
- Lessons Learned or Study Results
- Conclusions and/or Implications
- References or Bibliography
Submitted papers should meet the following formatting requirements:
- Length: 5-10 pages, single spaced
- Margins: 1 inch all around
- Font size: 10
- Paragraphing: one single space line between paragraphs, no indentations
- Style: any (APA, Chicago, etc.) as long as it is consistently applied
Those who also submit papers will undergo a peer review to be published in the proceedings. Submitted papers will be reviewed on the following criteria to determine inclusion in the proceedings.
- The purpose of the paper is consistently supported throughout all sections.
- The paper’s topic is clearly connected to one of the conference tracks.
- The paper describes a project or research completed or conducted using digital technologies for teaching, training, learning or instructional design.
- The paper presents logical and clearly defined lessons learned or study results.
- The paper’s conclusions or implications follow the lessons learned or study results to their logical and summative end.
- The paper is consistently formatted as per the above guidelines, and adheres to correct grammatical conventions and usage.
