Guidelines for Proceedings Papers: American Business Communication Association, Southeast Region.
Ramsey, Richard David
The minds of people who write papers for convention proceedings are diverse and generally creative, and ideally this diversity and creativity produces papers that advance the state of the art. In format, however, a proceedings book benefits from congruity and harmony. Contributors need to use a common language and accepted patterns of communication if they are to communicate at all and if they are to communicate with mutual appreciation. This similarity in format can be accomplished when all writers use the same kind of equipment and supplies and the same guidelines for pagination, margins, divisions of content, headings, spacing, style, graphic aids, and references. Adhering to a requested format will enhance the effect of the papers--on the reviewers, on the editor, and, ultimately, on the readers in general. (HOD)
