Call for Chapters: Cases on Online Discussion and Interaction: Experiences and Outcomes

Cases on Online Discussion and Interaction: Experiences and Outcomes

A book edited by Leonard Shedletsky, Professor, Communication, University of Southern Maine, USA, and Joan E. Aitken, Professor, Communication Arts, Park University, USA

Researchers and practitioners are invited to electronically submit a 5-7 page manuscript proposal, which clearly explains the purpose and central ideas of their proposed case chapter. Prospective authors are welcome to submit a conference paper, which has potential for revision to a case chapter.

For primary consideration, proposals need to be submitted on or before January 19, 2009. Potential authors can also submit a draft of a full case chapter by February 16, 2009.

Each case study chapter will be a detailed account of an individual, group, organization, or system, though we do not want to count out experimental research. The detailed example may include personal perspectives of the author or quotes from people involved.
