    For those of you interested in submitting a paper to NCA but worried that there are no business-friendly divisions...

    Please consider the sponsored by the Association for Business Communication!  I've attached a copy of the call suitable for distribution to your friends and colleagues, but here's the whole enchilada:


    Association for Business Communication

    2013 Call for Submissions

    The Association for Business Communication invites submissions for affiliate panels at the

     

    National Communication Association Annual Convention

     

    Washington, DC, November 21-24, 2013

     

    The Association for Business Communication (ABC) invites scholarship that addresses all aspects of communication in business contexts, including corporate communication and rhetoric, professional communication practices, communication management, and business communication pedagogy.

     

    Submission Process Electronic submission is required in accordance with NCA policies by March 27, 2012 at 11:59pm PT. Submissions will be accepted as of January 14, 2013 through NCA Submission Central at www.natcom.org/convention. Acceptance decisions will be announced by June 7, 2013. For further information, contact the program planner, Dale Cyphert, University of Northern Iowa, at dale.cyphert@.... Submissions will be reviewed by three scholars with appropriate research specialties in business communication.  All submitters are encouraged to review the NCA’s Professional Standards for Convention Participants prior to submission.  Helpful resources, including step-by-step submission instructions and how to create a blind copy, are provided at the Convention Resource Library. Both resources are available from the NCA convention website: www.natcom.org/convention.

     

    Individual Papers Submissions should be no more than 25 pages in length, exclusive of notes, citations, and tables.  Title, author information, and a 100-200 word abstract will be submitted separately from the uploaded text document, which should be stripped of any identifying text or document coding to facilitate blind review.  Research that is appropriate for alternative media or interactive settings may be designated for Scholar-to-Scholar consideration. If interested in participating in Scholar to Scholar, check the appropriate agreement box.

     

    Paper Session or Panel Discussion Proposals  Submissions should include titles, a 200-500 word session/panel rationale, an overall panel/session description, a complete list of titles and abstracts for each paper presentation (paper sessions only), and presenter names, affiliations, and email addresses. For panel discussions, please describe the contributions of each presenter.

     

    ABC Awards The highest ranked paper submitted will be awarded a Top Paper Award and nomination for all appropriate NCA awards or programs. Papers designated as student work during the submission process will be considered for the ABC Top Student Paper Award and nomination for all appropriate NCA awards or programs.  All authors must be students for submission as student work.

     

    The Association for Business Communication, established in 1935 as an international organization committed to fostering excellence in business communication scholarship, research, education, and practice, has been an affiliate organization of the NCA since 2008.
