AERA has announced an extension for creating presentations for the new Interactive Presentation Gallery by two months—from July 31 to September 30—for 2020 Annual Meeting authors.

“With the 2021 Annual Meeting submission deadline scheduled for August 14, we appreciate that preparation of papers and sessions is the highest priority in the coming two weeks,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine in a July 31 message to 2020 Annual Meeting authors. “Therefore, we have materially extended the opportunity to participate in the Interactive Presentation Gallery through September, given the demands on time as a consequence of Covid-19.”

The Interactive Presentation Gallery is an exciting new product for AERA and a way of sharing work in progress throughout the year. Complementing AERA’s Online Paper Repository, the gallery is a web-based platform for sharing presentations from meetings. 

AERA is launching the gallery this year with a focus on papers accepted for the cancelled 2020 AERA Annual Meeting that were never presented. Presentations for all 2020 Annual Meeting papers accepted for paper sessions, roundtables, or poster sessions, or planned for accepted or invited session submissions, are encouraged to be part of the gallery.

“The AERA Interactive Presentation Gallery offers a user-friendly, accessible, and engaging way of presenting your work,” said Levine. “Without the competition of simultaneous sessions at an annual meeting, users of the gallery can see all of the most current work that interests them.”

The gallery is a vehicle for authors to provide a brief presentation of their work that allows for narration as part of the display. Authors can activate a chat function and meet up with other interested scholars during the month of October at a time scheduled by the author. Through this portal, authors can also receive messages and/or respond to Q&A well beyond the October “chat” span. 

The gallery will launch as an open access product on October 1—one day after the final presentations are finalized. First authors will receive the official invitation to create an interactive presentation in the gallery. If another author seeks to create the presentation for multiple-authored papers, the first author can designate a change in the presentation creator.
