The AEJMC Newspaper and Online News Division is accepting panel proposals for the 2013 convention in Washington, D.C., Aug. 8 to 11.
The deadline for panel proposals is Oct. 21. Panel proposals must include:
1. A working title and panel description.
2. A statement of whether the panel would be a Teaching, Research or Professional Freedom and Responsibility panel. PF&R panels focus on free expression, ethics, media criticism and accountability, racial/gender/cultural inclusiveness or public service.
3. Suggestions for divisions or interest groups that might be interested in co-sponsoring the panel. Panels that include co-sponsoring divisions/interest groups have a better chance of being accepted, because they are likely to be of wider interest at the convention and allow the division a chance to take part in more sessions. In fact, many of the Newspaper and Online News Division’s 2012 convention panels involved co-sponsors.
You should submit your proposal to only one division, and we invite you to submit it to the Newspaper and Online News Division.
For ideas on co-sponsoring opportunities, here’s a list of divisions and interest groups.
4. A statement of why the topic is important.
5. A brief description of issues the panelists could discuss.
If your panel is chosen for presentation with a co-sponsoring division or interest group, you will work with a representative from the co-sponsor to make sure that the interests of both divisions/interest groups are represented on the panel.
6. Names or descriptions of possible panelists. If you have specific people in mind, please identify them. Firm commitments are not needed, but it helps to know if those people would be willing to serve. If you don’t have names, say what type of panelist you are aiming for – a scholar with a particular expertise or someone from a particular media company. AEJMC tracks diversity among panelists, moderators and discussants, so please keep that in mind when planning Limited funds for travel reimbursement are available for panel participants who are not AEJMC members. The deadline for those requests is late January. Whenever possible, please try to find local panelists or AEJMC members whom you expect will be attending the convention anyhow.
7. Your name, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address. Applicants must be AEJMC members.
Please send proposals as attachments to: Claire Serant- Vice Programming Chair (AEJMC – Newspaper and Online News Division)

• Evolving income models for Web content

The Newspaper Division’s Winter 11 Leadtime newsletter is here — possibly the last to carry the division’s original name.
As division head John Carvalho notes in the newsletter, 73 percent of voting members recently supported changing the division name to “Newspaper & Online News” — “both recognizing our division’s heritage and incorporating the changes that it has experienced.”
In other news, Leadtime has last-minute tips on meeting the April 1 deadline for conference papers, and details on the division’s program at the August event in St. Louis.
As Carvalho notes, the name-change decision goes to the folks at AEJMC headquarters and president Jan Slater, for the next step… which presumably at some point will include the official change on newsletter, blog and homepage nameplates.
(Your Web editor hopes we will keep this “http://aejmc.net/news” and the archival “http://aejmc.net/newspaper” address and not be ordered to shift to “/non” or “/naon,” lest someone think we are involved with non-news or the misspelled noon-news. )
Peer reviewers are needed to read papers for AEJMC’s Southeast Colloquium beginning in early December, with a review deadline in mid-January.

Reviews would need to be completed by Jan. 15 so that authors can be notified by the end of January. The colloquium is March 17-19 at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C.
We would like to have enough reviewers so that no one person is handling more than three papers, and preferably fewer.
Please volunteer by letting Doug Fisher know at email@example.com. Please include your preferred mailing address and any areas you feel especially qualified to review in.
