10@OU AEJMC Midwinter reminder – abstracts due online Dec. 22

The MMEE Division invites student and faculty submissions to a special edition of the AEJMC Midwinter Conference: This will be the 10th anniversary of Midwinter to be hosted by the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Oklahoma 10@OU!

This year’s conference will be Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3. Submit abstracts online at http://bit.do/MIDWINTER18 (REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, even if you’ve registered with Midwinter before).

Authors should upload abstracts of 600 to 800 words (excluding author information and references) by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, December 22. These should be substantial abstracts of at least 600 words with details on literature, theory, methods, results and discussion.

Authors will be notified of their submission’s status by mid-January. Authors of accepted abstracts must submit complete papers (not exceeding 30 pages) to the discussant of their conference session at least two weeks before the Midwinter conference and papers cannot be under review at other outlets (e.g., ICA). You may, though, resubmit accepted Midwinter papers to the national conference paper call April 1. Panel proposals are also welcome.

We are also in need of volunteers for three tasks:

  1. To review abstract submissions online in December and January;
  2. To serve as moderators on-site at OU for the conference in March, and;
  3. To serve as discussants (NOT on-site), reviewing the final papers and offering feedback to the authors and moderator. Ph.D. students who are ABD/post-exams are encouraged to serve as reviewers, which is a nice service opportunity for your C.V. If you can help review abstracts, please sign up at https://goo.gl/forms/kqjnSUb2YiE7r49o2.

If you can help as a moderator (at the conference) or a discussant (online), or if you have questions, please contact MMEE Research Co-Chairs Ronen Shay, rshay@sjfc.edu, or Kelly Kaufhold, kellykaufhold@txstate.edu. Hope to see you there!
