Invitation | Manuscript Guidelines
The paper you are presenting at the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) Convention 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 authors name and as a part of the entire Proceedings. Additionally, a limited quantity of hard copies of the Proceedings are printed and sold by AECT. 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 Tech Trends, 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 if you submit your paper according to the journals guidelines. 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 should be sent prior to the beginning of the Convention. Send your paper using email. Be sure your file is clearly marked and that it follows the Manuscript Guidelines. Papers are due no later than the first day of the Convention. The submission email address is:
