Evaluation of Your Abstract
The following guidelines are observed by the Conference Committee when initially selecting papers.
§ The paper must not have been published or circulated previously--this includes publication in periodicals or other professional journals.
§ The paper should contain new knowledge or experience in some field of higher education
§ The paper must be grammatically correct and should be of interest to a reasonable number of people working in higher education. It may be theoretical or may present the results of studies, or it may state or analyze a problem. The paper may also be a review-type paper, but it must be of significant value to the educational field it addresses.
§ You need to get company or institutional clearance before you submit the abstract. Prospective authors should provide information on any clearance problems when the abstract is submitted.
Theoretical papers and application papers presenting solutions to problems will be selected from various fields. Program time is limited, so when weighing its decision, the Conference Committee will emphasize the quality of the contribution and its value to higher education.
Commercialism and Copyrights
Commercialism: while it is appropriate at times to mention commercial trade names, language that is commercial in tone must not be used. Using such terms in an abstract may result in a negative review by the Conference Committee. Excessive commercialism in the text of papers submitted for the meeting and the Conference Journal is cause for removal of the paper from the program.
