PanSIG Journal Call for Papers: Extended Deadline Monday, September 14

Due to the rapid shifts in teaching due to the covid-19 pandemic, wrapping up the Spring semester has taken much more time and energy for many people. With that in mind, the submission deadline has been extended by two weeks to September 14, 2020. If you presented at PanSIG 2020 and have not yet submitted a paper, we encourage looking over the details below and making a submission.

All presenters at JALT PanSIG 2020 Online are invited to submit a paper based on their presentation for publication in the 2020 PanSIG Journal. All submissions should be made by sending a properly formatted manuscript to In the same way that the presentations were vetted prior to the conference, the conference papers will also be subjected to peer review. Publication in the 2020 PanSIG Journal qualifies as a refereed publication.

Submissions should be no longer than 4,000 words, including references. Note that any paper over 4,500 words will not be considered for publication and any paper of fewer than 2,500 words are unlikely to be selected for inclusion. Also, please try to restrict any appendices to a maximum of three pages. Papers should be either research or practice-oriented. Please look at previous PanSIG Journal articles for examples of these two types of papers.

Authors who submit a manuscript for review will be assigned a paper for review. If there are multiple authors for one paper, one author will need to review a paper for the proceedings journal.


We look forward to your submissions,

Patrick Conaway
(2020 PanSIG Journal Editor)
