Call for Submissions

Authors are now invited to submit research papers, research-in-progress abstracts, and panel proposals for the 44th Annual AEJMC Southeast Colloquium.

General Submission Rules

Please be advised ... the deadline for submissions for the 44th Annual AEJMC Southeast Colloquium has closed.   Peer review is underway.  Authors will be advised about acceptances by February 1, 2019.  

They must be original and must not have been previously presented at a conference. 

Students and faculty should indicate their status for consideration of faculty and student top paper awards.  If a faculty member is involved, even if second or third author, the paper should be submitted in the “faculty” category.

All submissions — papers, RIP and panels — should include an abbreviated, 100 word abstract on the application form.

All submissions will be judged and decisions made by February 1, 2019.

The author of each accepted paper (at least one author in the case of a co-authored paper) must present the paper at the Colloquium or it will not be listed in the final program. Acceptance and/or submission of papers to colloquium paper competitions does not prevent authors from submitting to AEJMC divisions for the AEJMC Annual Conference in August.


On the cover page of the attached paper, only the title of the paper should appear, followed by a 250-word abstract.

Length of papers should not exceed 30 pages including references and tables for all divisions (except Law and Policy, which has a 50 page limit).

Do not include any author identifying information on any page of the paper submission. Authors should also redact identifying information from the document properties.  Online instructions on “how to submit a clean paper” for blind review»


The Colloquium will include research-in-progress sessions as an opportunity for researchers to share and get feedback on projects that are in some stage of development.  Authors must submit a synopsis of the project, with research questions or hypotheses and at least one paragraph that explains what stage of development the project is in.  More detailed submissions are also allowed but should not exceed ten double-spaced pages.

As with papers, on the cover page of the attached paper, only the title of the paper should appear and authors should redact identifying information on any page of the paper submission.

Research-in-Progress abstracts are NOT eligible for Colloquium research awards.  

Panel Proposals

Panel proposals should include a brief description of the panel along with proposed panelists.  Identifying information is allowed in this category.  Proposals should not exceed three double-spaced pages.
