Submissions to the JSIP Workshop

Deadline for submissions: August 1, 2014

Please note that only one paper may be submitted by each junior scholar-applicant.




Title of Paper:

Reviewing JSIP submissions takes time and effort as multiple reviewers read each piece. Before we undertake this review process, we want to be sure that if we accept you, you will be able to be able to come in October. Therefore, please doublecheck your calendars and make sure the dates work for you. We’d need you to attend both days.

I hereby attest that I am willing to commit to attend the entire JSIP Workshop.

The JSIP Workshop seeks to provide feedback on forthcoming scholarship in order to improve the final product. We do not normally accept articles that are already published or so far advanced in the publication process that further edits are impractical. Therefore, we ask that you provide us with some information as to the status of your submission.

  • Previously published work is ineligible.
  • One submission per person.
  • Joint work is eligible so long as all authors are junior scholars.

The paper I am submitting to the JSIP Workshop is currently:
