CALL FOR PUBLICATION MENTORING WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
***New in 2013***
Supported by the New Scholars Committee
PURPOSE OF WORKSHOP
At the CIES conference each year, the New Scholars Committee holds dissertation mentoring workshops for doctoral students--but this year we also want to reach out to those graduate students, recent graduates, educational professionals, and junior faculty who would like to receive additional support for publishing a paper. Following the format of the dissertation workshops, the New Scholars Publication Mentoring Workshop is a unique opportunity to discuss a publication draft with experienced scholars and peers. The workshop will consist of informal and brief presentations of the publication draft, followed by constructive feedback from faculty and peers. The objective of this hands-on workshop is to provide participants with feedback on theoretical framework, methodology, and/or findings—all in efforts of producing a publishable paper.
You can apply for the Publication Mentoring Workshop if:
• You are a student member of CIES or recent graduate, and you are registered or planning to register for the 2013 CIES Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana; or
PROPOSAL STRUCTURE AND DEADLINE
• You do not expect to participate in the New Scholars Dissertation Mentoring Workshop at CIES 2013; and
• You are willing to read and engage substantively with other group members' work both prior to and at the workshop.
