The Funding Councils have established a central REF Equality and Diversity Panel to advise the REF team, REF panels and the funding bodies on arrangements for dealing with equality and diversity matters and, in particular, on how to treat more complex circumstances for individual members of staff who may be submitted with fewer than four publications. All panels will apply the same rules for early career researchers, part-time staff and women who have taken maternity leave or staff who have had other periods of absence during the REF submission period in relation to the number of publications which may be returned without penalty. As for RAE 2008, universities were required to develop a Code of Practice on the selection of staff in order to ensure fairness and transparency in the selection process. The approved Code can be downloaded from this webpage.

Impact factor Calculation[edit] In any given year, the impact factor of a journal is the average number of citations received per paper published in that journal during the two preceding years.[1] For example, if a journal has an impact factor of 3 in 2008, then its papers published in 2006 and 2007 received 3 citations each on average in 2008. The 2008 impact factor of a journal would be calculated as follows: A = the number of times that articles published in that journal in 2006 and 2007, were cited by articles in indexed journals during 2008. B = the total number of "citable items" published by that journal in 2006 and 2007. 2008 impact factor = A/B. (Note that 2008 impact factors are actually published in 2009; they cannot be calculated until all of the 2008 publications have been processed by the indexing agency.) Use[edit] The impact factor is used to compare different journals within a certain field. Criticisms[edit] Numerous criticisms have been made of the use of an impact factor. Responses[edit]

Tim Albert Guidelines for Authors At Harvard Business Review, we believe in management. If the world’s organizations and institutions were run more effectively, if our leaders made decisions more strategically and humanely, if people knew how to work together more productively, we believe that all of us — employees, bosses, customers, our families, and the people our businesses affect — would be better off. So we try to arm our readers with ideas that help them be smarter, more creative, and more courageous in their work. To do that we enlist the foremost experts in management theory and practice, collaborating to express their best thoughts in the most influential ways possible. If you have a new piece of research, an unexpected perspective on a current event, or an original way of looking at a perennial management problem in any industry, we would love to hear about it. Here’s what we look for, when we’re considering what to publish on 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Some notes about our process: Katherine BellEditor,

Guidelines for HBR Authors Harvard Business Review The Harvard Business Review has one goal: to be the source of the best new ideas for people creating, leading, and transforming business. Since its founding in 1922, HBR has had a proud tradition as the world's preeminent management magazine, publishing cutting-edge, authoritative thinking on the key issues facing executives. HBR's articles cover a wide range of topics that are relevant to different industries, management functions, and geographic locations. They focus on such areas as leadership, organizational change, negotiation, strategy, operations, marketing, finance, and managing people. While the topics may vary, all HBR articles share certain characteristics. The best way to inquire about HBR's potential interest in a topic is to prepare a proposal. What is the central message of the article you propose to write (the "aha")? It need not be long and it certainly need not be written in question-and-answer format. Is this idea new? The Editors

Guidelines for Writing Scholarly Papers Guidelines for Writing Scholarly Papers Department of History and Political Science Ashland University Basic Structure Things to Avoid Things to Do Style Sheet for Student Papers Writing, even just a brief essay, is one of the most difficult tasks that you will face in college. Scholarly writing has its own set of rules and conventions that are different from those of creative or technical writing. Basic Structure: The introductory paragraph should engage the reader’s interest by setting out clearly the question that the paper is attempting to address, how you plan to address it, and why it is worth addressing in the first place. The thesis statement is a summation of your main point; this should generally appear at the end of the introductory paragraph. You should then provide background information, basic material about the subject, to provide context for the reader. The real “meat” of your paper will be the actual points of discussion.

Write and Submit a Conference Paper Proposal Find a conference A call for paper proposal is issued about one year prior to each of our conferences. If you have an idea for a technical paper, search the conferences with an open call for papers. Write a Proposal A paper proposal should be about 350 words (may differ by conference) and include enough information for the committee to make an accurate judgment of your paper. Your proposal should demonstrate that your paper will: Contribute technically sound knowledge in a particular area of petroleum technology Present new knowledge or experience that has not been published previously Not be commercial in nature and will not promote specific companies, products or services Submit your proposal Once you have written a paper proposal, you can submit it to any of our conferences with an open call for papers by the deadline to ensure it will be considered. Write your paper Proper organization of the paper will lead the reader through your supporting data and theories to a logical conclusion. or

Citing sources A citation, or reference, uniquely identifies a source of information: Ritter, Ron. The Oxford Style Manual. Oxford University Press, 2002, p. 1. Citations are used to identify the reliable sources on which an article is based. Wikipedia's Verifiability policy requires inline citations for any material challenged or likely to be challenged, and for all quotations, anywhere in article space. This page explains how to place and format citations. Types of citation A full citation fully identifies a reliable source and, where applicable, the place in that source (such as a page number) where the information in question can be found. When and why to cite sources By citing sources for Wikipedia content, you enable users to verify that the information given is supported by reliable sources, thus improving the credibility of Wikipedia while showing that the content is not original research.
