7. How can I get my news into the EURAM newsletter?
As EURAM member, you can propose news items to EURAM newsletter. After the quarterly Call for Contributions, a form is placed on the website http://www.euramonline.org/newsroom/newsletter/newsletter-contribution.html
You may send us information to publish about: progress on ongoing and newly launched research projects such as:
- establishment of a new research centre
- grant application success
- forthcoming book
- planned or recently concluded workshop/conference
- new appointments
- new collaborations between institutes
- innovation in teaching methods
- announcement of recently completed doctoral thesis
- and any other news that you wish to publicise to the community
The contributions should be max. 130 words mentioning the URL link to the relevant website. Please note that only the contributions following the formatting requirements set above and sent by the deadline can be considered for publication in the newsletter. Additionally, given the limited space that we have for members contributions, they will be incorporated on a first come – first served basis. In most cases, however, we will be able to post all received contributions also on the EURAM website.
8. I submitted my paper to the conference; however, it did not get accepted. Why? What can I do to get my paper accepted?
Some papers get rejected because they a) do not fulfill the general requirements concerning submitted papers (wrong formatting, late submission, etc.), b) they do not fit the track / SIG content, or c) they do not fulfill the quality criteria in the track. In EURAM, we expect the submitted papers to be full papers that could potentially be developed into journal papers, after the conference. All papers are double blind reviewed by peers in the SIG/track based on relevance, novelty, methodological rigor, contributions, and overall quality, and papers are prioritized based on this review process. Always, around 20-30% of the submitted papers are rejected based on the review process.
The review feedback given about the paper will offer ideas on how the paper can be improved. In order to succeed in their papers at the conference, we encourage authors to select the right (most appropriate) track for their paper (so that also the reviewers identify with the topic of the paper) and to develop high-quality papers – as complete as possible. This usually requires that the writing work begins early, and enough time is allowed for finalizing the text and enhancing the quality of the paper before the submission.
9. How can I become more involved in EURAM activities?
Participating in one of the annual events such as the conference, doctoral colloquium or early career colloquium and presenting a paper are just one form of involvement in the scientific community. EURAM also needs active reviewers who assess the papers and offer constructive feedback to enhance the quality of the papers. Once you have gained experience with writing, presenting and reviewing papers, you could potentially become a session discussant or chair (by communicating this interest when submitting your paper / enrolling to the events), or you could propose new symposia, tracks or other activities with your colleagues. Over time, the SIG Officers may notice your active engagement and invite you to take other roles in the SIG, or you could also self-nominate as a possible national representative in EURAM national representatives’ board.
Senior members may become involved in our activities by becoming a mentor to a PhD Student during the Doctoral Colloquium or the Early Career Colloquium.
