The paper you are presenting at the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) Convention in Jacksonville is one we would like to consider for inclusion in either Volume #1: Proceedings of Selected Research and Development Papers, or in Volume #2: Proceedings of Selected Instruction Papers. All sessions accepted for presentation at the Convention are eligible for consideration for publication in the Proceedings, including poster sessions, concurrent sessions, keynotes, invited sessions, or panels. The Proceedings publishes only papers, not presentations, such as PowerPoint slides.
All manuscripts included in either volume of the Proceedings are sent to ERIC for possible indexing separately under the author’s name and as a part of the entire Proceedings. Additionally, a limited quantity of “hard copies” of Volume #1 are printed and sold. The hard copy and electronic versions of the Proceedings may be ordered using the order form included with this letter. Electronic versions of both volumes of the Proceedings are made available to convention attendees and AECT members.
Because you may also be considering publishing your paper in ETRD or the Quarterly Review of Distance Education we have been told by the editors that inclusion of your paper in the Proceedings would not exclude it from consideration by those journals. AECT becomes the copyright holder once the Proceedings are published. Your submission indicates your agreement to this and that your paper is your original work and is not in violation of copyright.
In order to be included in the Proceedings, your manuscript on both paper and disk should be sent to me no later than one week following the close of the 2017 Convention. My address is:
Michael R. Simonson, Editor
Instructional Technology and Distance Education
Nova Southeastern University
Fischler Graduate School of Education
1750 NE 167th Street
North Miami Beach, FL 33162
If you have any questions, please call me at (954) 262-8563.
