Conference Awards: International Educational Action Research Journal / CARN 2016

 

International Educational Action Research Journal / CARN 2016

Conference awards

 

EARJ and CARN are delighted to be able to offer two awards at the CARN 2016 conference. We are consolidating this development which marks an important and significant agenda between CARN and the journal in seeking to actively encourage, engage and support new researchers and in particular those new to publishing.

The awards are an opportunity for 2 conference participants new to publishing to receive some active support in helping to move their conference presentation to publication. It will not guarantee publication in the journal (as usual, reviewing processes need to take place) but it does offer some dedicated engagement in helping to bring work to publication from the conference. A critical friend / pre-peer review support will be provided on two occasions by experienced action researchers on the basis that the contributor is seeking to gain experience in writing for publication. The two recipients will also receive a year’s subscription to the journal and £150 in book tokens (jointly sponsored by EARJ and Taylor and Francis Publications)

 

Applicants who wish to be considered:

Please contact Charmian Wilby (CARN secretary: carn@mmu.ac.uk ) by October 10th attaching your abstract plus a maximum of two pages outlining your intended article.

 

The criteria:

  • Applicants must be new to publication, having 2 publications or fewer in peer reviewed journals
  • Applicants will need to publish in ways that would be commensurate with the journal’s scope and field
  • The written material for publication will draw upon the participant’s conference presentation in some way
  • There must be a wider benefit/interest to action research communities in publishing
  • There needs to be a strong commitment to submitting an article within 12 months of the conferenceFor further information, queries or submissions please contact Charmian Wilby (CARN Secretary: carn@mmu.ac.uk )
  • An EARJ/CARN panel will shortlist on the basis of conference abstracts and article outlines that have been put forward for consideration. The participants will be notified and the awards will be announced at the conference dinner.

Letter of Welcome from the CARN Conference Organizing Committee at BGU

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to submit an abstract for the International Conference for Collaborative Action Research Networks (CARN) to be held at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln from 11th -13th November 2016.

We hope that you find out website helpful, but here are a few highlights:

The CARN International conference is very well established in the action research community, with a reputation for high quality research and scholarship. The conference is a space where people interested in action research in education and other social sciences from around the world meet in a dynamic and supportive atmosphere which celebrates collaborative and participatory approaches to research. Individuals are invited to share the intellectual challenges and curiosity that drives their research in various professional contexts, including education, health and social work. Bishop Grosseteste University is a small university in the heart of Lincoln close to the City Centre where Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln castle are a five minute walk from the University.

A pre-conference interactive workshop on ‘Building Trust in Action Research’ is also offered on Thursday 10th November 2016 led by the Action Research Network of the Americas (ARNA) The workshop is free of charge to conference attendees, but spaces are limited so an early booking is advised.

The 2016 conference theme is the 4 Ps ‘Integrating the Personal Political and Professional in our Practice’. You are invited to submit an abstract for a presentation that enables you to identify how your personal, political and professional ‘worlds’ may collide or coalesce and how your practice and research might inform a global conversation and perspective of integrated experience. Presentations may take the form of papers, workshops, poster sessions, Pecha Kutcha Presentations, (see http://www.pechakucha.org/) performance, or round table discussions.

Abstracts should be approximately 300 words, and include references. This is an indicative number of words: please judge how best to communicate what you wish to say. Abstracts and papers can be submitted through the CARN conference website. https://sites.bishopg.ac.uk/carnconference
