Who Can Submit
California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC) only publishes materials about work conducted under the auspices of CalSWEC. For additional information, please contact Chris Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to Submit a Paper
- Make sure your paper is in an acceptable format. We can accept papers in Microsoft Word, Rich Text Format (RTF), or Adobe Acrobat (PDF).
If you use a word-processing program other than Microsoft Word, look for an "export" or "save as" option in your program to save it as an RTF file. If you have questions, please contact Chris Lee at email@example.com.
- Write an abstract for your paper. It should be approximately 100 words. Please also select keywords. These are words that will help a user locate your paper through a search.
- Submit the paper by emailing it to Chris Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include in an email message the following things: abstract; keywords; and name, affiliation (department and university), and email address for each author. Attach to the email a signed version of the Author Agreement (see policies for text for the author agreement).
- If you have any questions, contact Chris Lee at email@example.com.
Overview of the Process
After you submit your paper, we will create an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) version of the paper. We will then send you a message asking you to approve the PDF version. Please look it over within 5 days and reply to Chris Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. At this stage, we're unable to make any changes beyond the truly necessary. You will be notified by e-mail when the paper is posted.
How to Revise Your Paper
If you publish this paper or a revised version elsewhere, for example in a journal, please send the citation of the new version to Chris Lee at email@example.com. We will be able to inform researchers about the new version.
If you would like to post a revised version of your paper on the site, please follow the instructions in "How to Submit"; however, please specify when you submit the paper that it is a revision of a previously submitted paper.
