Dear Colleagues,

At a reception on Thursday, February 2, 2016 starting at 4:30 p.m., in the Great Hall of McCardell Bicentennial Hall, we will honor faculty and staff members who have published important articles or engaged in public artistic projects during the past year. Eligible publications include significant articles or creative work in peer-reviewed journals and essays in collected volumes that are peer-reviewed. (The format could be print or digital.) Off-campus artistic performances or exhibitions will also be included. Although conference proceedings, conference posters and abstracts, encyclopedia articles, and review articles are important scholarly contributions, we will not be recognizing them at this reception.

If you wish to have your work included, please send bibliographical citations of your eligible accomplishments by Friday, January 13, to Sandra King (, Assistant in Academic Administration/GSFS Coordinator, Chellis House. (Please submit the necessary full citation of your work even if it has been recognized already in the “Faculty Accomplishments” announcements.) In addition to a booklet of faculty achievements, we plan to have a display, so if you have off-prints of articles, photos, or programs or announcements from off-campus artistic performances or exhibitions, please also send them to Sandra. All eligible accomplishments will have a publication, exhibition, or performance date of 2016.

We will do our best to adhere to the citation format that is appropriate for your field, but we are seeking some standardization in our reporting. So please see sample entries below and be sure to follow the following guidelines:

· Times New Roman, 12 point, black.

· Article and poem titles in quotation marks; journal, book, performance, or exhibition titles in italics.

· Include page numbers for articles and book chapters (when appropriate).

· Indicate student co-authors by an asterisk after their names

· End with a period.
