You are invited to participate in a new online academic conference site (http://EdConference.net).
The e-conference site was created by a group of educators at a large online university who see the Internet as a venue that can help disseminate timely and critical research and thought faster than traditional conferences and publication venues can accommodate. While traditional venues can take as long as a year to offer peer-reviewed work, the founders believe that academics working together can generate a much faster publication calendar.
The intent of EdConference.net is to provide a quick-turn-around peer-reviewed venue to paper and project presentation, specifically for information related to leadership issues in Education, Business, and Nursing/Health Care. New conferences start every three (3) months (every 2 months, as the number of participants increases), with conference submissions becoming part of an electronic periodical that will be available online from an e-book vendor.
A summary is provided below. Visit EdConference.net for complete information.
For the inaugural conference, there is no theme, but the expectation is that most submissions will be in the area of education. For example, one area of interest might be leadership issues in online education.
Publication categories are research, literature reviews, and book reviews. Video poster presentations may reflect a theoretical framework, a segment of ongoing unpublished research analysis, textbook analysis, curriculum development, or any other professional work that does not fit neatly into the three categories.
Participation is free during the inaugural year (4 conferences), but each submitter must be willing to blind-review one, possibly two, works per his/her own submission. When multiple authors are listed, each must agree to review at least one assigned conference item.
To participate, submitters
- must be educators or researchers at a college/university,
- have valid university email address, and
- provide an accessible link to their personal or departmental university web site from which their status can be verified.
Although the forms downloads are not quite ready, these will be added shortly (give us a week). In the mean time, feel free to contact the conference administrator for further information through the email link provided on the web site, or
