Contributing to the conference proceedings
Authors are invited to submit papers for the conference proceedings. To make our cooperation more effective, you are kindly asked to comply with the following requirements:
The manuscript is author’s own original work, and does not duplicate any other previously published work, including their own previously published work. The manuscript has been submitted only to the conference proceedings; it is not under consideration or peer review or accepted for publication or in press or published elsewhere. If the author is reproducing copyrighted material (and is not the copyright owner or holder of that material) in the submitted paper, then it is author’s responsibility to obtain written permission from the copyright owner prior to paper submission, ensure appropriate acknowledgement and pay fees which the copyright holder may charge.
- Only a corresponding author should submit an abstract.
- The manuscript should be submitted in Microsoft Word document (for the full paper template click here).
- The file should not exceed 20 MB.
- All papers should be written in UK English. They must be proofread carefully before submission. To maintain the quality of the conference proceedings, we would kindly ask you to attach a confirmation of proofreading in English to your full paper.
- All papers should have references in Roman script
- Manuscripts should be prepared according to APA (American Psychological Association) standards.
- When submitting the paper, low-resolution raster figures can be included. Before publishing the conference proceedings, you will be asked to provide high-resolution raster figures.
- Manuscripts should be compiled according the template in the following order: title; abstract (150 up to 250 words); keywords (3 to 5); main text; acknowledgements (if required); references; appendices (as appropriate).
- Submitted papers should be no longer than 8,000 words (including the abstract, acknowledgements, references, appendices, endnotes, tables/figures and their legends). Submissions exceeding this limit may not be accepted for review.
- Please note that we use a double blind peer review process. All papers will be sent to two reviewers and, should the paper require some revision, authors will be sent the revised manuscript and asked to modify it according to the requirements of the reviewers. If authors disagree with the reviewers, they will be asked to give reasons for their disagreement. Should the reviewers’ reports contradict one another, a further expert opinion will be sought. The final decision on a manuscript is made by the Editorial Board.
We would like to receive your submissions for the conference proceedings by the end of December 2019. Thank you!
Contributing to the CARN Bulletin
The CARN Bulletin is a non-peer reviewed publication that arises from the annual Conference. The CARN Co-ordinating Group warmly invite you to consider submitting a paper and/or a short reflective piece for publication in the next Bulletin.
We know that the Conference itself - its interchanges, its moments of connection – continues profoundly to influence our research and practice beyond the event, and we welcome contributions along these lines as well as papers. Such aspects of the Conference may be documented in different ways and in different formats. The Bulletin will be web-based, with print copies available if needed.
We are asking for:
- reflections on the conference - around 500 words
- what's happened to your research post conference – up to 1000 words
- papers based on your presentation - around 1500 words. These are not peer reviewed and so are different from publishing in scholarly journals. Use this as an opportunity to publish ‘work in progress’ to test out ideas, or to publish material you might want to draw on in your other publications.
- pictures and other media – these are also very appropriate for the Bulletin. Please do not feel bound by the term ‘words’ to define the length of your piece; this is a guide only and do take a look at the CARN website for previous editions.
We would like to receive your submissions for the CARN Bulletin by the end of March 2019. Thank you!
