Post Conference Publication of Papers


Presenters are encouraged to submit complete manuscripts for review and possible inclusion on one, or both, of the Electronic Conference Publication sites. Authors may claim one point only, if published, for their research profile.

1. The LERN 99 conference website will publish manuscripts which will be peer-reviewed by an international editorial committee. Manuscripts will be selected on the basis of quality and representation of conference themes.

2. The manuscripts may be published on UltiBASE. UltiBASE is sponsored by the Faculty of Education Language and Community Services, RMIT University. ( http://www.eu.rmit.edu.au )

UltiBASE ( http://ultibase.rmit.edu.au ) is an electronic journal that promotes the improvement of tertiary teaching and learning. Its primary focus is to publish scholarly papers in the fields of Education, Social Sciences and Humanities.

Refereed or moderated by ultiBASE editorial staff, the journal publishes original research, work-in-progress, interviews, conference proceedings and brief reports of teaching and learning initiatives.


Submit papers for review as follows:

  • One hard copy of the complete paper printed on a laser printer including illustrations, tables, graphs, etc. in the article or on separate sheets. This hard copy will be duplicated for the editorial review committee.

  • A PC or Mac disk copy. ONLY Word or Word for Windows should be used; or save document in rtf format.

Format papers as follows:

  • Total acceptable paper length is approx. 1000-3000 words. This would be about 8 laser-printed pages including figures, etc. and references.
  • The entire paper should be left justified only.
  • Use standard A4 page settings, with 2 cm left, right, top, and bottom margins
  • Use 12 point Times font, single spaced, except for headings.
  • A blank line should proceed a new heading (see sample document)
  • Do not separate paragraphs with a blank line. Indent the start of each paragraph by one tab stop.
  • DO NOT use bold, underline, centred text, or capitalised headings
  • Use italics (and not underlining) for emphasis
  • DO NOT use headers or footers
  • DO NOT use footnotes. If necessary, group numbered notes at the end of the text before the reference list.
  • Indent quotations longer than 3 lines using left-right indent. For shorter quotations, identify by "double quotes" in the text. All quotations (including short phrases) should have author's name, date, and page number.
  • Headings should be in upper and lower case. DO NOT use underlining. Up to three levels of headings may be used in the text if necessary. All headings should be left justified.
  • Title: Bold, 18 pt Times, small caps
  • Author(s): Bold, 16 pt Times

YOU MAY NOT LIKE THE LOOK OF THESE FORMATS, BUT DO NOT VARY THEM - THE EDITORS AND PUBLISHER WILL DO FINAL FORMATTING.


  • Use table commands or tabs to produce tables. DO NOT use the space bar to align text and figures. All tables should have a caption and be numbered successively. All tables should be referred to in the text. All captions should appear in the text. If tables are not pasted into the text, the location of each piece of illustrative material must be identified in the text as follows: [PLACE TABLE X ABOUT HERE], and each item (with number and caption) must be printed on a separate page and placed at the end of the paper. Pencil the authors' names lightly on the back of each page.

  • Diagrams (and other illustrative materials) should be headed as Figure 1, Figure 2, etc. with a caption and must be referred to in the text. If tables are not pasted into the text, the location of each piece of illustrative material must be identified in the text as follows: [INSERT FIGURE X ABOUT HERE] accompanied by the caption. Preferably illustrative material should be produced by software: otherwise use BLACK artline ink. Each diagram, accompanied by its caption, should be printed (or drawn) on a separate sheet and placed at the end of the paper. Pencil authors' name lightly on the back of each page.

  • Use American Psychological Association [APA] referencing style within the text and in the reference list using Italics and not underlining.
