ASIS&T 2016 Annual Meeting Copenhagen DenmarkA mentoring service will be available for students and other junior researchers who have not published papers at earlier ASIS&T Annual Meetings. Feedback on complete draft papers will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis to the extent that resources allow. In addition there will be a “revise and re-submit” opportunity offered for submitted papers that reviewers judge to have publication potential but require additional work.

Confidentiality of submitted materials will be maintained. Upon acceptance titles, authorships, and abstracts of submissions will be published in the annual meeting program and in other ASIS&T communications. Submissions should contain no information or material that will be proprietary or confidential at the time of publication, and should cite no publication that will be proprietary or confidential at that time.
