About GCEC

The Global Communication Education Conclave, a unique 75-day event involving Indian and global academics and professionals, intends to celebrate this diversity with scholarly contributions from varied perspectives. Scholars from the field of Media and Communication and related fields are invited to submit abstracts for presentation at the online conclave starting from October 21, 2021, and ending on April 10, 2022.

We invite you to submit a 250-word abstract mentioning the central premise, methods and significant implications along with 5-7 keywords. Try to avoid overly broad keywords. The abstract should be precise, informative and serve as a standalone piece. The abstract should not contain unexplained abbreviations or acronyms. The work should not be published previously nor be under review in another publication/conference. All abstracts will be peer reviewed. One author can make only one submission as a principal author.

The GMEC Review Board will send their decisions on abstracts following peer review by November 5, 2021. The authors of the accepted abstracts will be invited to make short presentations on a specified date at the 75-day long online conclave to be held from October 21, 2021 to April 10, 2022. The date and time of presentation will be specified in the acceptance emails sent to authors of the accepted abstracts. Authors of accepted abstracts will be required to send a full paper by December 15, 2021. The full paper maybe in the form of commentary, review or article. The maximum word count for full papers will be 2000 (including references).

These accepted papers will be published in edited books (with ISBN). We intend to publish three different edited books as part of the Global Communication Education Conclave. These edited books will be organised thematically.

We will follow the APA Style (7th Edition) for these edited books. Authors of accepted papers, will have to follow the APA Style (7th edition) for text formatting, references, in-text citation and text indents.

We urge authors to kindly follow the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Guidelines on Good Publication Practice. The COPE guidelines define Plagiarism as: ‘It ranges from the unreferenced use of others’ published and unpublished ideas, including research grant applications to submission under “new” authorship of a complete paper, sometimes in a different language. It may occur at any stage of planning, research, writing, or publication: it applies to print and electronic versions’.

It suggests: ‘All sources should be disclosed, and if large amounts of other people’s written or illustrative material are to be used, permission must be sought.’
