Guidelines for Submitting Papers
for the ACPA Annual Meeting in the Fall of 2013
Deadline for Submissions: April 2, 2013.
Please note that our
procedure for submitting papers has changed. We now ask you to submit papers
electronically, as email attachments.
1) The theme of the 2013 meeting is Aristotle: Now and Then; however,
papers on all topics are welcome.
2) Papers should be received no later than 2 April 2013, at
one of the following email addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
3) Submissions must
be received through email. Please save your paper in Microsoft Word (docx
preferred) or pdf. (Other formats are not acceptable.) Send your paper as an
email attachment to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
or email@example.com. The text of your paper
should not exceed 15 typed, double-spaced pages, 12 pitch (30 minutes reading
time). The paper must begin with a
short abstract (150 words), suitable for inclusion in the conference program. (The
abstract will not be counted against the overall length of your paper.)
4) The format of the paper should be appropriate for blind
reviewing, that is, nothing in the paper itself should reveal the
author’s identity. (We will take care that your paper is not identifiable in
the way it is saved by us, as blind review is one of the strengths of our
conference papers and our proceedings.)
5) In the body of your email, please include:
Complete postal address,
Home phone number,
Work phone number,
E-mail address that will be good from 2 April 2013 through 1 September 2013.
(If you use more than one email address, please include all of them.)
6) It is understood that, by submitting material for possible
presentation at the 2013 Annual Meeting, authors agree that, should the paper
be accepted for presentation at the Annual Meeting and publication in the
Annual Proceedings, they will deliver the paper in person at the 2013 ACPA
Conference, and they agree to allow the ACPA to hold the copyright to such
material. If the paper is accepted, you will be asked to sign a publication
agreement with us.
7) Those authors who wish to have their papers considered
for the ACPA Young Scholar’s Award (scholars 35 years of age or younger,
regardless of academic position, are eligible) should indicate as much in the body their email.
8) We will acknowledge receipt of your paper by email,
shortly after it is submitted. Then between 1 and 15 July 2013, we will inform
you if your paper has been accepted for the conference, and for publication in
the ACPA Proceedings.
9) If you would like to comment on a paper or to chair a
session, please let the ACPA Secretary know by sending a separate e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
or email@example.com or by writing to the ACPA’s National
Office. Be sure to provide your e-mail address, as well as your fax,
home, and work telephone numbers, and your area of philosophical expertise.
