IGI Global continues to showcase educational research by exhibiting at the AERA Meeting

Canada-Bound: IGI Global Looks Forward to Exhibiting at the Upcoming 2019 AERA Annual Meeting

By Sharlene Oong on Apr 2, 2019
As a leader in educational research and a proud supporter of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), IGI Global will be exhibiting at booth #702, at the AERA 2019 Annual Meeting in Toronto, Canada, on April 5-9, 2019. Mrs. Lindsay Wertman, Managing Director, will be representing the international academic publisher, showcasing how IGI Global's publications feature the latest emerging theories and concepts in the education field, reaffirming our dedication to foster better teaching and learning experiences.

With nearly 1,000 reference books and 13 scholarly journals that span across 65 topics including and not limited to educational technologies, special education, curriculum development, and instructional design, IGI Global works with over 100,000+ industry leading scholars from prestigious institutions (i.e. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard University, Stanford University, University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Tsinghua University, Australian National University, and many more) to produce the most forward-thinking content to the research community.

Through working with these experts, we understand the challenges academicians face when publishing their work, and as such, IGI Global has streamlined its publishing process by establishing expedited publishing timelines through our top-of-the-line production system, 100% in-house staff, and eEditorial Discovery® system, an online submission manager that allows each phase of a project to be uploaded and monitored by the editor(s) and contributors. Through this process, we are able to take a project from proposal to published 9-12 months without sacrificing quality, as all of our publications undergo a double-blind peer review process. As a result, we are able to provide our contributors with valuable publishing benefits which include:

  • Free one-to-one editorial and promotional support provided by members of IGI Global’s editorial and marketing teams.
  • Utilize IGI Global’s eEditorial Discovery® submission system in support of conducting the submission and double-blind peer review process.
  • IGI Global maintains a strict adherence to ethical practices due to our full membership to the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
  • Indexing potential in prestigious indices such as Scopus®, Web of Science™, PsycINFO®, Ei Compendex, and ERIC – Education Resources Information Center.
  • As IGI Global is integrated with ORCID, contributors can create or connect their ORCID iD which provides authors, editors, reviewers, and contributors authentication of their work.
  • Earn royalties on your reference book publications, as well as receive complimentary copies and exclusive discounts.
  • Receive special discounts for eContent Pro International® editorial services.

Additionally, as a publisher focused on ensuring that researchers are able to receive the highest recognition and citation impact for your work, IGI Global launched the OA Fee Waiver (Offset Model) Initiative that provides institutions with an additional source of OA article processing charges (APCs) funding.

    When a library invests in IGI Global’s InfoSci®-Books (4,500+ reference books) and /or InfoSci®-Journals (185+ scholarly journals) databases, they can take advantage of the OA Fee Waiver (Offset Model) Initiative. Through this initiative, IGI Global matches the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go towards subsidizing the OA APCs for their faculty patrons at that institution when their work is accepted under OA into an IGI Global journal.*

Not only will researchers have the opportunity to take advantage of this additional source of OA APC funding, but they will be able to access the latest emerging research that spans across 350+ topics in 11 core subjects including business, computer science, education, science & engineering, social sciences, and more, through the InfoSci-Books, a database of over 4,500+ reference books containing nearly 100,000 chapters, and the InfoSci-Journals, a database of nearly 25,000 peer-reviewed articles and 1,000,000+ citation references sourced from over 185+ scholarly journals.

Hosted on the InfoSci® platform, these powerful research databases provide research-friendly features including full-text PDF and HTML format, no DRM, unlimited simultaneous users, and no embargo of content (research is available months in advance of the print release), making it an ideal resource for course syllabi, professional development, and personal research projects.

Recommend InfoSci-Journals and InfoSci-Books databases to your library.

For additional information on how to increase the overall discoverability of your research, esteemed IGI Global contributor, Dr. Jenny Rankin, from Cambridge University, Post Doc Masterclass lecturer, UK, author of the chapter titled, “Data System-Embedded Analysis Support's Implications for Latino Students and Diverse Classrooms,” from the publication, Handbook of Research on Classroom Diversity and Inclusive Education Practice, on April 7, 2019, from 8:00 a.m.-Noon, will be heading a professional development (PD) course titled, “Communicating and Sharing Your Research.” The course will take place in one of the following (to be announced), in Toronto, Canada, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Fairmont Royal York, InterContinental Toronto Centre, Sheraton Centre Toronto, or Westin Harbour Castle.

This course is catered to attendees who have researched (or are currently researching) any topic within the education field and want their findings to reach as many people as possible in order to help as many students as possible. Dr. Rankin has taught this course (previously called “Strategies for Sharing Your Research”) for the past two AERA Annual Meetings.
