Submit a Paper for the
AHEA Conference Proceedings

As a presenter at an AHEA Conference, we invite you to submit a short paper (related to your presentation) for inclusion in each year’s conference proceedings. AHEA conference proceedings are published electronically and archived on ERIC. We use the following timetable to produce the conference proceedings.

  • Paper Submission Deadline April 30

  • Papers Proofread and Returned to Authors for Last Review May 15

  • Final Papers Due May 31

  • Proceedings Release Date (Anticipated) June 30

To Submit a Paper for the Proceedings

As noted, we aim for a rather tight turnaround time for publishing the proceedings. This process will be expedited by your careful attention to the following content and formatting guidelines. Your paper will be reviewed and edited for grammar, APA, and clarity, but we will not engage in a thorough review of the contents. Therefore, please ensure that you submit a polished version of the manuscript by the April 30, 2024 deadline. Papers that do not meet the full criteria for submission and acceptance will not be included in the proceedings. 

Paper Length Guidelines

  • Papers will be 1,500-3,000 words. Word count includes tables, figures, and references.
  • Include an abstract of 100-120 words and 3-5 keywords to aid in indexing your paper.
  • Ensure the reference section is complete and in line with APA guidelines.
  • Include a biographical paragraph of no more than 70 words for each author/presenter.

Formatting Guidelines

  • Papers must be submitted using the following word processing formats: *.doc, *.docx, *.rtf. Do not submit a .pdf file.
  • Double-spaced, 12-point, Times New Roman font.
  • APA 7th edition requirements apply for formatting, citations, references, language usage, and research criteria (ethics, IRB, etc.).
  • Submissions should use academic writing, including supported statements and logical arguments. Papers must also demonstrate excellent writing, organization, grammar, and absence of jargon and passive voice.
