April  2020

AERA has extended to Monday, June 22, the deadline for authors to upload the final versions of their papers that were accepted or invited for the 2020 AERA Annual Meeting. All authors of papers that were to be presented at the 2020 meeting will receive a citation indicating that their paper was accepted for this cancelled meeting.

AERA is offering authors two opportunities to share and make accessible their work, whether their papers were scheduled for paper sessions, roundtable sessions, poster sessions, or symposia. The AERA Online Paper Repository, established in 2010, provides access to papers; a new AERA Interactive Presentation Gallery provides authors with web-based presentation opportunities. 

“Both are significant opportunities for authors engaged in scholarly work,” emphasized AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “The Repository and the Gallery provide authors with wide dissemination to others interested in their work, and users have ongoing access to discover the important work of authors. In addition, each of these products provides authors with authenticated citations to their work.” 

Authors seeking to place their papers in the AERA Online Paper Repository need to indicate their interest in doing so when they upload their papers in All Academic; or they may return to All Academic to do so through June 22. AERA has created a paper submission and upload instruction page to help scholars prepare their final papers. 

Parallel to the Repository, the AERA Interactive Presentation Gallery offers a web-based space for sharing presentations that were intended for the 2020 Annual Meeting. This platform will allow authors to use one of nine templates to present their slides as they would in a paper or symposium session, their handouts as in a roundtable session, or their posters as in a poster session. Authors can narrate these slides in voice and transcription formats, schedule an open chat on their own timetable, and/or engage in Q&A. 

“While it is not the same as face-to-face,” Levine said, “it is a remarkably close approximation, widens the reach of presentations, and can be seen by users when they have time.” 

The AERA Interactive Presentation Gallery will open the week of May 4 for authors to create or refine their presentations in the Gallery’s editing space. Authors of all AERA papers will receive invitations to do so and will have until June 22 to complete their work. The Online Paper Repository and the Interactive Presentation Gallery will be linked for authors who use both, with a unique citation for each.

These two portals will be available for users and authors starting July 13—three weeks after the deadline for upload and presentation completion. AERA is providing the AERA Online Paper Repository and the AERA Interactive Presentation Gallery as open access products freely available to users worldwide. Additional information will be posted on the AERA website on May 4.
