Another avenue to publishing is presenting a paper at a conference. Conference presenters are usually invited to publish their presentations in the conference proceedings. Presenting is a great way to network and begin making a name for yourself in the field. Not ready to submit a paper? Why not consider submitting to a poster session as a first step!
The following professional associations sponsor annual meetings and publications, put out calls for papers, and are valuable resources for scholarly networking.
Below are selected sites that aggregate Calls for Papers from a variety of conferences. Another option is to go directly to the conference/association website and look for the submission deadlines and instructions.
Here are some links to tips and examples for writing conference proposals and abstracts. (Be sure to follow the particular submission guidelines for individual conferences.)
Most journal publishers will list the Calls for Papers on their individual website. Be sure to check the publisher Author Guidelines for instructions.
