The Publication has now gone through an entire issue release cycle. This involved a call for papers, a peer review of all the submissions, an editor’s final decision on each submission, and publication of the accepted papers. Sadly, only two submissions were recieved during this publication cycle. Of those two, only one met the peer reviewer’s collective standard of quality. The one article has since been changed into html format and published to the website. Due to the lack of multiple papers, this issue will not see its own collective PDF file created but rather will only link the single article as a standalone PDF.
I would like to make special note that Carleton was a very proactive member in distributing the call for papers to their students and I hope other schools will follow their lead in the future. Publicity throughout our members is an integral part of a successful publication. Thank you Carleton.
The call was also e-mailed to at least one administrator of every member school as part of the distribution process.
An extensive overhaul of the outdated ProMag policy guidelines was created as well. The bi-annual peer reviewed academic journal direction that we have decided to take this publication is now reflected in the proposed policy along with guidelines of how the call for papers will be distributed and the operations of the peer review committee.
