Title:CHI, ICIS, SIGIR and Numerous Other Outlets That Won't Accept My Work: The Perils of Publishing Multidisciplinary Research?
Author(s):Jansen, Jim; Rosenbaum, Howard; Ackerman, Mark; Liddy, Elizabeth D.
Multidisciplinary Research
Abstract:The motivation for this session comes directly from two series of comments made at the 2007 iConference. The first was uttered at a pre-conference workshop. In a discussion on where to publish, the recommendation was made to aim for the outlet First Monday. Now First Monday is a fine online journal, but it is certainly not on any institution’s A-list that I know of. If First Monday is your lead journal, what’s your fall back? The second comment was made at a session on digital library research, where the panelists were asked what they considered their major publication outlets. The overwhelming answer was the SIGIR Conference. Now SIGIR is fine conference, but when one thinks of openness to new ideas, SIGIR is not the first conference that jumps to mind. These comments, and many others made in informal discussions, raise the concerns of disseminating multidisciplinary research results. This interactive session will address the subject of publishing multidisciplinary research.
