Submission procedures 2008 issue of ICS journal

by | Aug 21, 2007 | Conferences, Elections, Publications

The process for selection and publication of papers for the 2008 AoIR special issue of Information, Communication and Society is as follows:

Phase 1 – A short list of papers/authors invited by the editors to submit a formal paper by Phase 2. [NOW COMPLETE]

Phase 2 – If you’re on the short list, please submit a full paper of 5-7,000 words by September 1, 2007 to both editors: Haythornthwaite and Wellman. NOTE: This is a hard deadline. No papers will be considered after this deadline.

Phase 3 – The editors will return comments and suggested edits on your paper by October 1, 2007. (We may also secure an additional referee, if needed.)

Phase 4 – Return the final paper to both editors by November 5, 2007.

Please note that due to the quick turnaround time to have the special issue out early in January 2008, *no* extensions will be given for these deadlines. You are, of course, free to submit the paper at a later date for ICS, but it will no longer be considered part of the special issue if you miss either the September 1 or November 5 deadline. (Please submit late papers directly to Brian Loader, the ICS editor).

Papers should conform to ICS style as indicated at this URL. Please pay particular attention to ICS formatting for references both in text and in the final reference list.

In addition, please follow these guidelines for papers sent to the special issue editors:

  • Use Times Roman typeface, 12 pt text for normal text throughout
  • Double space throughout
  • Add line numbers, by page (in Word for Windows this is under File: Page Setup: Layout; on Word for Mac this is under Format: Document: Layout)
  • Submit Word files only (no pdf, LaTex, or Word Perfect please).
