OISE GSRC Call for Submissions

Dear Authors from the 17th OISE Graduate Student Research Conference,
PLUS Authors from previous years & with Research from other venues – if willing,

We invite those who have presented or have been scheduled but were unable to present at the 17th and Earlier GSRCs to consider submitting their research for an online publication with the University of Toronto Open Journal System (OJS) in one of four possible venues:

1. Volume 1 – papers, up to 3,000 words (negotiable)
2. Volume 2 – PowerPoint presentations, up to 20 slides (interactivity TBD)
3. Volume 3 – posters (PDF, png, and jpg file format)
4. Volume 4 – web space for 3 min. video/audio recordings of the gist of your work – cf. 3MT (3 min. thesis talks) rounds held for the past 3-4 years at the university

You are welcome to switch between media. For example, a poster can be submitted as a paper in Volume 1, and vice versa, and either of these formats can be submitted as a PowerPoint presentation in Volume 3, or a 3MPresentation in Volume 4. At this point, if you are not ready with your choice you can indicate which media you are considering.
You are also invited to indicate in what language or languages you want to

publish your work: English or French or both, and either English or French as a parallel text for works in additional languages. This will help us organize multi-lingual feedback for your work.

Reviewing will take place in two formats:
1) Reciprocal Open Feedback – those submitting authors who wish to also be reviewers for the Proceedings of the 17th & Earlier OISE Graduate Student Research Conferences, are invited to help with providing feedback to their fellow submitting authors. We will need around 10 keywords describing the areas you consider yourselves best versed in and the language(s) in which you can i) read and check basic grammar and spelling, or ii)  provide more substantial feedback on style and argumentation.
2) Disciplinary-Peer Open Feedback – students advanced in their program, post-doc fellows, and faculty will be invited to help shape up your submissions to your best advantage as scholars-in-the-making.
Please email to the two Editorial Team Contacts lynne.alexandrova@mail.utoronto.ca and uthish.ganesh@mail.utoronto.ca your Notice of Intent to Publish, including:

1. Working Title (you can vary the title from the one announced in the Program)
2. Author(s), bio blurbs of approximately 100 words (to appear in the publication), and languages in which you intend to publish your work (and can review)
3. The Volume to which you wish to submit, or which ones you are considering at this point
4. Copyright Statement that your submission will not appear -- in identical form -- in another print or online publication, not counting personal web spaces such as websites and blogs, a.o. Should you choose to publish in personal online spaces, you will be invited to acknowledge Official Publication in the Proceedings of the OISE Graduate Student Conferences.

NB! You can also submit the conference version of your work right away, which will facilitate meeting the intended Publication date – August or September. You should be receiving acknowledgement of your Notice within 24 hours. If you don’t, please email.

Please note that the Timeline of the Proceedings preparation will depend on the number of submissions and the number and availability of people who volunteer to provide peer feedback, including for (i) English-only contributions and (ii) bilingual ones in French and Additional Languages, with a parallel text in English.

We have the Proceedings Project approval of this year’s Conference Co-chairs Deidre-Ann K. Gardener and Christopher V. Caldwell, and have received encouragement by the OISE Academic Planning Student Experience Committee Meeting on April 10th, 2017, and also by OISE PhD graduates teaching at various universities, some of whom have offered support for the project.

NB! Please note that, in view of the Extension to Past GSRCs & Other Venues, we are adopting a Case-per-Case TIMELINE approach & submissions acceptance/processing
on a rolling basis –- for as long as our Project Team Capacity allows it.
