Community Update: Brief Hiatus for Submissions to Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering


The Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering (JWM) is announcing a three-month hiatus on new submissions, beginning May 31st and ending September 1st, 2024.

Why is this occurring? As a paper journal, we are limited in how many articles we can publish per issue due to page constraints. Currently, we have a backlog of accepted articles waiting to be published and we don’t want authors to have to wait 18 months from time of acceptance to publication. To improve timeliness in delivering our content to the JWM audience, we need to allow some time for the publishing schedule to catch up to existing submissions.

Although no new submissions will be accepted for review during the hiatus timeframe, we encourage authors who are nearly ready to submit their manuscripts to JWM to go ahead and do so before May 31st, 2024. We will be welcoming new submissions again in September 2024, with our newly reduced word limit (8,000 words). This new word limit will help us overcome our constraints as a paper journal while continuing to serve our JWM authors and STEM education research community.

NETI-1, Course Design and Student Engagement


NETI-1, Course Design and Student Engagement, the flagship offering of the National Effective Teaching Institute, will be offered July 30 – August 1, 2024, at Purdue University. Drs. Susan Lord, Matt Ohland, and Michael Prince will lead the long-standing foundational NETI-1 workshop, which has been offered since 1991. Previous NETI programs have reached over 3000 participants from more than 370 different schools. Our past participant evaluations have been overwhelmingly positive. The workshop features material for relatively new faculty members and other material designed to equip experienced faculty members to become teaching leaders and mentors on their campuses. Participants will include up to 60 faculty members from all branches of engineering, engineering technology, and other STEM areas. The registration fee is $1275 per participant, which covers organization and presentation costs, participant notebooks, lunches, and breaks. Participants also receive a copy of Felder & Brent’s Teaching and Learning STEM: A Practical Guide and the option of touring Purdue’s School of Engineering Education. NETI workshops have a powerful impact when teams of instructors from the same institution attend as a group, so for every three registrants from the same institution, the fourth is FREE! Travel expenses, including breakfasts and dinners, are not included. Further details about the workshop program and a link to register can be found at https://www.neti-workshop.org/event/neti-1-coming-summer-2024/ or email neti.workshops@gmail.com for more information.
