Writing for Academic Publication: Publishing/Editing Proceedings

May 5th    At 12:00. Deadline for final paper! Drop-dead date deadline.

Cover letter would help to decide where/the venues you will send the paper. For instance, pedagogical journals, etc.


1. What does proceedings mean?

Proceedings means a collection of papers from a particular conference. Conferences are a major source of cutting edge research. At conferences, researchers present papers on the research they are doing and obtain feedback from the audience. The papers presented in the conference are then usually published in a volume called a conference proceeding.

2. Discussion Questions

a. What are values/functions of publishing proceedings? Do they differ in terms of disciplines?

b. How does publishing proceedings differ from other publications?

c. Challenges of publishing/editing proceedings?

3. Findings from Literature Review

Proceedings papers tend to receive less citation than those published in ordinary issues or than regular articles (Gonzalez-Albo and Bordons, 2011)

In most of the cases, the proceedings paper published in journals is expected to represent a more elaborate version since these papers often have undergone an additional reviewing and selection process or, at least, a careful revision according to the requirements of the particular journal, where the paper has finally been published (Zhang and Glänzel, 2011)

There are higher credits assigned to journal publications than to proceedings (Zhang and Glänzel, 2011)

The proceedings literature is valuable supplement to the journal literature (Glänzel, Schlemmer, and Schubert, 2006)

Proceedings in journals play an important part in scholarly communication even if their impact is often somewhat lower than that of “regular” publications. (Zhang and Glänzel, 2011)
