Who Can Submit

At least one of the paper's authors must be a current Wesleyan University faculty member, instructor, adjunct, or post-doctoral fellow to be considered for publication in the ACSPL Working Paper Series. For additional information, please contact wps@wesleyan.edu.

How to Submit a Paper

1. 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 wps@wesleyan.edu.

2. Write an abstract for your paper. It should be between 200 and 250 words. Please also select keywords. These are words that will help a user locate your paper through a search.

3. Submit the paper by clicking on Submit Research and following the instructions. If you have any questions or problems, contact wps@wesleyan.edu.

Overview of the Process

After you submit your paper, we will create an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) version of it and send it out to review by a member of the tenured faculty for review. You will be notified by e-mail whether the paper has been accepted or declined for the series.

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 wps@wesleyan.edu. We will be able to inform repository users 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.
