CUE Forum: The research writing process: Working with journal editors and reviewers

Location: Japan Association for Language Teaching 2009, Granship, Shizuoka

Date: Saturday, November 21, 2009  Room 910, 4:00 to 5:45 p.m.

CUE Forum presenters:
John Gunning (OnCUE Journal Editor, CUE SIG Publications Chair)
Matthew Apple (OnCUE Journal Guest Editor, CUE SIG Programs Chair).


The College and University Educators SIG will introduce in a workshop format specific steps to assist authors in improving research papers for publication. From the editor’s perspective of the OnCUE Journal and other SIG publications, workshop presenters will guide participants through the three steps that will enhance their research papers to publishable standards prior to submission.

First, presenters will offer suggestions on how to improve the organization of research content, paying specific attention to logical argument flow that can support the author’s research claims. Participants will complete hands-on activities using authentic sample writings with the intent of raising awareness of acceptable academic writing based on research paper organizational rubrics, research statistics, and appropriate word choice.

Next, participants will complete tasks related to editor and reviewer comments in order to determine how best to accommodate suggestions for paper revision. The CUE Forum will focus specifically on the creation and modification of APA-style tables.

Last, presenters will discuss “author-related research responsibilities” regarding submitted papers; this will involve a detailed example that exemplifies the complete process of publication reviewing from the initial submission to the final edit and proofread version.
