POST-CONFERENCE PUBLICATION OF PAPERS

Papers should be approximately 2,000-5,000 words in length.

We request that you use the Microsoft Word authoring template which can be downloaded here. (Please note that the macros in this document serve the function of making the document a re-usable template. Once you enter your information, you save it as a regular document ( .doc or preferably .rtf, Rich Text Format) and the original (.dot) template remains available for re-use.)

You may use any referencing style you choose, as long as you use it consistently and to the appropriate standards. Papers may be emailed at any time (before or after the conference) as an attachment to <papers@learningconference.com>

The deadline for submission is 20 August 2002

People submitting papers are requested to referee up to three other papers.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Papers should conform to the following requirements:

  • Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format file, to be emailed to <papers@learningconference.com>.
  • 2,000 - 5,000 word length.
  • Paper or chapter-style continuous expository narrative - not PowerPoint presentations.
  • Images, tables, diagrams etc. should be placed in the correct position in the text.
  • Text should be formatted in 12pt Helvetica at 1 1/2 line spacing.
  • Spelling can vary according to national useage, but should be internally consistent.
  • Any referencing and bibliography system can be used, depending on the author's disciplinary practice, but it should be rigorously and consistently applied.
  • Papers should be thoroughly checked and proof-read before submission, both by the author and a critical editorial friend.
  • Deadline for submission of papers for one-way blind refereeing: one month after the end date of the conference.
  • Deadline for submission of papers for double-blind refereeing: three months before start date of conference. Presenters requiring two way blind refereeing need to indicate this in the comments field of the call for papers form at the point of submission of their proposal.

PUBLICATION FORMATS

The proceedings of the Learning Conference are published in two formats - a printed monograph format, and also as an electronic book. Each format has its own ISBN. Both printed and electronic formats will be made available at the conference publishing site.

Learning Conference participants will be provided free access to all papers in the electronic format. It will be possible to purchase printed versions of these papers for $US5/$Aud10, and electronic versions (for people who did not attend the conference) for $US2.50/$Aud5 from LearningConference online bookstore.


THE REFEREEING PROCESS

Conference presenters belong to a community of educators and scholars who provide critical and constructive feedback on the work to their peers. We request that people who have been accepted to present at the Learning Conference agree to referee three other papers from the conference they attended, or subsequent conferences.

The refereeing process for the conference proceedings can be either 'one way blind' (paper submission one month after the conference, which gives the presenter the chance to refine your paper in the light of their presentation) or 'two way blind' (paper submission three months before the conference, which means the presenter needs to have a finalised, fully publishable paper well before the conference). 'Two way blind' means that neither the author nor the referee are provided each other's identity. 'One way blind' means that the referee knows the identity of the author, although the referee's identity remains confidential. 'Two way blind' refereeing is not possible later than three months before the conference because it is easy to locate the title and author in the conference program.
