                                    ESRI 2010 Paper Submission Guidelines

Congratulations! Your proposal(s) to the 7th Annual Educational Symposium for Research and Innovations (ESRI) at The
George Washington University has been accepted; now what? The following four (4) pages are designed to guide you
through the ESRI paper submission process. This page contains information relating to the submission and formatting
requirements of papers, as well as general conference information. Pages two and three outline the three “Best Paper at
ESRI” awards that will be handed out this year. The ESRI Leadership Team encourages submissions for consideration for
these three prestigious awards. The fourth page is the Cover Sheet that must accompany the copy of the final paper
submitted to ESRI. Please review each of these pages carefully.

Completed papers are due by February 1, 2010. You must email your paper as a PDF document to esri2010@gmail.com
and submit one (1) hard copy of your paper to:

ESRI 09 Paper Submission
c/o Rick Jakeman
GSEHD
2134 G Street, NW
Washington, DC 20052

**When submitting your paper, please complete an ESRI Submission Cover Sheet (located at the end of this document) for
the electronic copy of your paper. The Cover Sheet should be the first page, with the paper starting on page two and
including no personal indicators – please do not submit the Cover Sheet as a separate document. An APA cover page is
not needed, please do not include one.

Papers should be between 10–25 pages in length, double-spaced, with proper APA style. APA 6 is recommended, but APA
5 will be acceptable for this transitional year. Your page total should include the cover page, abstract, reference list, and
appendices. For the benefit of our discussants, please do not submit papers over 25 pages long. (Discussants have a right
to stop reading after page 25.)

Successful ESRI papers have often been organized by following the list of topics in the call for proposals. By going through
the topics you briefly mentioned in your proposal, you are likely to cover all relevant portions of what is needed in a paper
for an academic conference. Another way to think about paper organization is to look at the research articles you used to
inform your paper and to follow organization used in these articles.

Additional details about your presentation, including time and room location will be made available in early February.

ESRI will be held on Friday February 26, and Saturday February 27, 2010 at the Marvin Center, 800 21st Street NW,
Washington, D.C. 20052. Paper presentations will take place on Saturday, February 27 only.

ESRI 2010 Best Paper Awards

All currently enrolled GSEHD students presenting papers at ESRI are eligible for the three ESRI “Best Paper” Awards: The
“Ralph O. Mueller Best Paper Award”, the “Jay Shotel Best Paper Award”, and the “Sylvia Marotta Best Paper Award.”
This year the Ralph O. Mueller Best Paper Award will be awarded in the Doctoral Paper category, the Jay Shotel Best
Paper Award for the Advanced Research Paper category, and the Sylvia Marotta Best Paper Award for the Masters
Research Paper category.

All papers submitted for award consideration should address the criteria as determined by the guidelines stated within the
category in which they submitted their paper. Awards will be determined by a double blind review process by a selected
committee of faculty members and doctoral students. Please see the guidelines for each category as follows:

Review Criteria for Master's Research Paper - Best Paper Award
This year the Sylvia Marotta Best Paper Award will be awarded for the Master's Research Paper category. Students who
wish to be considered for the Best Paper Award in this category must indicate their intent on the final coversheet of the
accepted paper.

Final paper review will be based on: overall quality of the work; impact on the field of study; consistency with prior
research; rigor of analysis; and level of innovation.

Review Criteria for Advanced Research Proposal - Best Paper Award
This year the Jay Shotel Best Paper Award will be awarded in the Advanced Research Proposal category. Students who
wish to be considered for the Best Paper Award in this category must indicate that their intent on the final coversheet of the
accepted paper.

Final paper review will be based on: overall quality of the work; impact on the field of study; consistency of design with
research question and/or problem; rigor of analysis; and level of innovation.

Review Criteria for Doctoral Research Paper - Best Paper Award
This year the Ralph O. Mueller Best Paper Award will be awarded in the Doctoral Paper category. Students who wish to be
considered for the Best Paper Award in this category must indicate their intent on the final coversheet of the accepted
paper.

Final paper review will be based on: overall quality of the work; impact on the field of study; appropriateness of design
with research question and/or problem; soundness of research process; rigor of analysis; and level of innovation.


At the time of paper submission by February 1, students should indicate on the cover page submission form their
interest in award consideration in the category that best matches the paper.

    Papers will first be considered by two distinct student panels, which will determine the finalists for the three awards
based on adherence to the stated criteria. A final selection panel, led by the namesake of each award, and consisting of the
faculty adviser to ESRI and the ESRI student chair, will determine the winning paper.

    The award paper’s author/s will be notified before ESRI to allow mentoring and editing of the paper before presentation
during the conference. The winning papers will be posted on the ESRI website, and the winners will receive faculty
mentoring to support proposing the paper to a national conference and/or to a journal. If the paper is presented at a national
conference, the student will receive $50 towards registration of that conference.

Award Context

    ESRI was created to encourage GSEHD students at all degree levels to present their scholarly work in a safe,
comfortable environment; to educate students about proposing to and participating in scholarly conferences; to build
community across programs, degrees, and sites; and to assist the advancement of students’ dissertation process. Thus,
some ESRI presentation categories do not exist in national academic conferences. The “Ralph O. Mueller Best Paper
Award”, the “Jay Shotel Best Paper Award”, and the “Sylvia Marotta Best Paper Award” advance the objective of moving
students’ scholarly work toward national presentations and publications.
What Constitutes the Award?

 If the paper is subsequently presented at a national conference, the student receives $50 towards registration of that
  conference;
 A certificate of recognition;
 Feedback from faculty before ESRI for improvement of the ESRI presentation;
 Presentation/recognition at the ESRI;
 Feedback/mentoring to propose and present the paper to a national conference and journal publication;
 Posting of the paper on the ESRI website;
 Listing of the paper title and authors on the ESRI website and in future ESRI programs;
