PF&R Award Nominations Are Due May 1st

Do you know of an individual or institution that deserves to be recognized for their efforts in the promotion of professional freedom and responsibility? Is there a company or organization in the Chicago area that you think deserves recognition at our annual conference in August? The Media Management, Economics & Entrepreneurship (MMEE) division of AEJMC is seeking nominations for the division’s Professional Freedom and Responsibility Award (PF&R).

The PF&R award recognizes excellence in the promotion of free expression; ethics; media criticism and accountability; racial, gender, and cultural inclusiveness; and public service, as it pertains to media management, economics, and entrepreneurship. The award is open to any person or institution–professional or academic–that makes significant contributions to public advocacy or has by their actions encouraged management practices that promote excellence in any of these five areas. The award recognizes actions by working management professionals, research, teaching or service activities, or any other relevant work.
 
The division is particularly interested in nominations of people or institutions with connections to Chicago, the host city of the 2017 annual conference, where the award will be presented.

The award may be granted to significant contributions made in the preceding year or over a lifetime, at the discretion of the Named Awards Committee. If the nominee is a not a member of the MMEE Division, preference will be given to nominees from the region of each year’s annual convention. At its discretion, the Named Awards Committee may choose not to make a PF&R award in any year, if no suitable nominee is put forward. Self-nominations are not accepted for the PF&R award.
 
Nominations, along with any available supporting material, must be received (via mail or email), by the Division’s Immediate Past Head, Amy Jo Coffey, by the deadline of May 1, 2017. In addition to materials supplied by nominators, nominees might also be contacted and asked to submit supporting any material as quickly as possible after that date. Supporting materials may include, but are not limited to documents and texts pertaining to research, media advocacy or expert testimony, media coverage, and peer acknowledgment. The winner of the award will be notified well before this year’s AEJMC annual conference in Chicago, and the award will be presented at MMEE Division’s Members’ Meeting during the conference.
 
Please send nominations by email to acoffey@jou.ufl.edu .

Reminder: AEJMC Deadline Approaching

We are quickly approaching the AEJMC paper deadline, and I wanted to gently remind paper submitters to please take the extra time to clean your papers of any self-identifying information. We want to enjoy the benefit of everyone’s research, so let’s try not to have any papers disqualified this year! One way to ensure this is to finish the paper 1-2 days before the deadline, providing enough time to double check before submission. Here are some additional resources and tips:

1) See the AEJMC website link with instructions on how to clean your papers and convert them to PDF files: http://www.aejmc.org/home/resources/research-resources/. Also FYI…double check the file’s identifying properties AFTER converting to PDF as well, as sometimes PDFs mysteriously “keep” identifying properties after conversion (I can attest to this from past personal experience).

2) Some of you will also understandably cite your own work, or that of co-authors, in your papers. Here is a recommended way to cite without self-identification:

For in-text citation: (Cite withheld for blind review, 2014)

References at end: Cite withheld for blind review (2014). Remaining reference information will be added pending paper acceptance.

(Can list all of these under “C” alphabetically in Reference list.) 

3) As usual, you must submit your paper to the All Academic system. Detailed information on how to submit your paper, and the full paper call can be found here: http://aejmc.org/events/chicago17/paper-call/

If you have any other questions about self-identification or how to clean your paper that is not covered in the above, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at sabine.baumann@jade-hs.de. Thanks for everyone’s participation in the process, and let’s make sure each paper receives full consideration. I look forward to your submissions.

All the best,
