Paper Topic

One of the goals of ASEE is to advance the development of innovative approaches and solutions to engineering education. So, papers submitted to the conference should have a clear focus on engineering education or pedagogy. The ASEE Southeastern Section Annual Conference is not an appropriate forum for technical research. Papers focusing on technical research rather than engineering education or pedagogy are better suited for other discipline-specific conferences. However, undergraduate students may present their technical research as a poster at the Student Poster Competition.

Blinded Manuscripts for Peer-Review

The Southeastern Section of ASEE has adopted a double-blind peer-review process. When blinding your manuscript, please make sure to utilize the following checklist available on Elsevier:

  • Remove any identifying information, including author names, from file names and ensure document properties are also anonymized.
  • Use the third person to refer to work the Authors have previously undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “… has been shown before1”.
  • Make sure figures do not contain any affiliation-related identifier
  • Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references but limit self-references only to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the submitted paper.
  • For blinding in the reference list: ‘Anonymous, Details omitted for double-blind reviewing.’
  • Remove references to funding sources
  • Do not include acknowledgments
  • Do not include author biographies

Final Paper Submission

Final papers should be submitted as a PDF file to the Conference Paper Management website.

Please make sure to add back in identifying information removed during the peer-review process including: author names, affiliations, funding sources, references, and biographies.
