Dr. Jody Byrne has received quite a few calls for papers over the years. One he received recently, however, really caught his attention… for all the wrong reasons.
As Dr. Byrne points out, “Calls for papers are supposed to inspire, encourage and explain. All this one does is bombard you with jargon, vague descriptions and non-explanations and then give you a bit of a headache.”
Have you ever received a particularly bad call for papers? What stood out about it? What could have made it better?
