Call for Submissions

NewsNet cover articles are a forum for brief essays on contemporary issues or matters of broad professional interest to the Association’s membership. As such, they can include summary discussions of new research (for example, reports on well-attended and much-talked about sessions at the annual conference). But please keep in mind that NewsNet is not a venue for extensive research essays. Most cover articles run between 2,500 and 3,000 words in length (which can include endnotes), and should be submitted as files in Microsoft Word.

We heartily encourage members—including graduate students—who are interested in proposing a NewsNet cover article to contact the Communications Coordinator or the Communications Advisory Committee’s chairperson, Sibelan Forrester.

For more information about the Call for Submissions and the ASEEES Communications Advisory Committee, please read "The ASEEES Communications Advisory Committee: Bringing the Association's Communications Platforms into a New Era" which appeared in the August 2009 NewsNet.

Deadlines for submissions of ads and announcements for regular NewsNet features are as follows:

  • January issue — December 1
  • March issue — February 1
  • June issue — May 1
  • August issue — July 5
  • October issue — September 1
