  • The contribution of media education to citizenship, ethics, peace and participation

Guidelines submission

Paper proposals should be of 450 to 500 words long, and should list the paper’s title, author's name, address, university affiliations, telephone, fax, and e-mail. The abstract should specify the subject, main question, aims, theoretical framework, methodology and indicate some of the findings, if pertinent.

Panel proposals should include a title, description of the central theme and subthemes, number of panellists (max 5), and the name and e-mail address of the person responsible for the panel. Each panellist should submit an abstract listing the paper’s title, the author's name, address, university affiliations, telephone, fax, and e-mail.

Proposals will be peer reviewed and supervised by the scientific board of the Media Education Research section.

Submission of abstracts is to be done online through the IAMCR's OCS (Open Conference System, using this link: http://iamcr-ocs.org. There are to be no email submissions of abstracts addressed to any Section or Working Group Head. 

The OCS system will be available to receive abstract submissions by December 1, 2014.

The deadline for submission is February 9, 2015 (OCS closed).

Early submission is strongly encouraged.

MER accepts presentations in English, French and Spanish. However, it is requested that abstracts, when possible, be submitted in English. The section will accept presentations in English, French or Spanish but recommends the use of powerpoint in English to faciliate understanding by an international audience. 

It is expected that for the most part, only one (1) abstract will be submitted per person for consideration by the Conference. However, under no circumstances should there be more than two (2) abstracts bearing the name of the same applicant either individually or as part of any group of authors.

Please note also that the same abstract or another version with minor variations in title or content must not be submitted to other Sections or Working Groups of the Association for consideration, after an initial submission. Such submissions will be deemed to be in breach of the conference guidelines and will be automatically rejected by the Open Conference System, by the relevant Head or by the Conference Programme Reviewer. Such applicants risk being removed entirely from the conference programme.

Upon submission of an abstract, you will be asked to confirm that your submission is original and that it has not been previously published in the form presented. You will also be given an opportunity to declare if your submission is currently before another conference for consideration.

Presenters are expected to bring fully developed work to the conference. Prior to the conference, it is expected that a completed paper will be submitted to Section Chairs.
