The 2014 INANE conference in Maine was more than fun … it was productive! We have the project on “predatory publishers” well underway, and another project addressing student papers that are submitted for publication is gearing up. Shawn Kennedy is spear-heading this initiative, and is issuing a call for other Editors to work with her on this project. Here is Shawn’s description:
Many editors have commented about being inundated with unpublishable papers written by students to fulfill course requirements. However, from the state of many of these papers, the students have not received the necessary coaching around writing for scholarly publications or how to go about submitting their papers. Several editors voiced interest in developing some guidelines/position statement/white paper addressing this common problem.
