If you want to test if your idea for a paper is welcomed by the Program Committee before undertaking the work of producing a paper, submit a paper proposal by April 1 and indicate that you would like to submit a complete paper. If our reviewers favor your proposal, you will receive an invitation to submit a paper before June 1. Your full paper will then be reviewed and given the status of either ‘reviewed paper’ or ‘paper in progress’ at the Conference.

You may submit a paper directly, without first submitting a proposal. Your paper may be accepted as a ‘reviewed paper’, ‘paper in progress’, or – if it does not meet the criteria of the conference – ‘rejected’. Please submit full papers to IJ7-mogensen@STANFORD.eduany time before June 1, 2010.
The Review Process
All papers will undergo blind peer review. The review process is humane, including reasonable turnaround time on submissions and firm but polite critique. Papers are reviewed in the order they are received and authors will receive answers as soon as the paper has been evaluated. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the Innovation Journalism Conference at Stanford University. Authors of rejected full papers are invited to participate in the conference without presenting their work. No conference fee is collected.
