Publications

EuroCALL Association offers 3 publication channels:

  • Short 1500-word papers published in the Conference Proceedings by Research-Publishing.net
  • Longer (3000 to 5000 words) research & development or reflective practice papers for The EUROCALL Review, and
  • Full, 8000-word research papers for the journal ReCALL

Each has a different deadline. See more information below.

1. EUROCALL 2017 short papers (proceedings)

Authors of all accepted presentations (papers and posters) can send a short paper of 1600 words in total (including title, abstract, keywords, main text, tables, references, acknowledgements) for publication in the EUROCALL2017 conference proceedings. Appendices, if necessary, will be placed on a separate file and referenced in the manuscript with a link. Note that only the papers/posters presented at the conference will be eligible for publication.

The short papers will be peer-reviewed and edited; a committee of reviewers selected by the editors will review the documents and rate them according to quality and correctness. Should you not hear from the editors (Kate Borthwick, Linda Bradley, and Sylvie Thouësny) after the conference, email Sylvie (sylvie.thouesny@research-publishing.net) as soon as possible as this probably means that the editors do not have your manuscript.

The publication of the short papers is guaranteed before the end of the current year. Because of the short amount of time between paper submission and publication date, there will be hard deadlines, which authors will have to meet if they want their manuscripts considered for publication.

Deadline for submissions: 30th June 2017  EXTENDED 31st July 2017

Instructions for short papers (if you are an accepted author and if you have registered for the conference):

  • Write no more than 1600 words in total (including title, abstract, keywords, main text, tables, references, acknowledgements).
  • Double check your manuscript word count. PLEASE NOTE: when submitted, should your paper exceed 1600 words, your paper will not be eligible for publication in the proceedings).
  • Include no more than 4 figures/tables.
  • Provide tables (if any) in editable format, not as a screenshot.
  • Include permissions to reproduce any copyrighted materials.
  • Follow APA style for references (in text and in list).
  • Include an acknowledgment section to credit the work of any non-author contributors, and/or funding.
  • Meet the editors’ deadlines; failure to do so will result in the rejection of your manuscript.
