CALL FOR PAPERS
High quality papers for the Seventh International Conference on Creationism (ICC), Summer 2013, Pittsburgh, PA are now invited for submission. In continuation of the Sixth ICC, the theme of the Seventh ICC is again Developing and Systematizing the Creation Model of Origins, making the Seventh ICC also a “working” conference.
The interested author should write a minimum 1000-2000 word Summary of his/her paper as a Microsoft Word document, categorize it according to the Area/Sub-Area classification below, and submit a copy no later than 31 January 2012 as an attached file to an email to the Editorial Board Chairman (email@example.com). Early submission is highly recommended. Required as part of your submission are the following:
1. 1000(min)-2000(max) word summary of your intended paper
Identification of the Area and Sub-Area to which your paper belongs (as defined below)
A list of at least 3 potential expert reviewers of your intended paper (the ICC Technical Review committee encourages the using of experts, regardless of origins position)
A brief list of subject reference sources
Each Summary will be evaluated by the Editorial Board Chairman in consultation with the Editors responsible for the technical review process for possible inclusion into the review process. If accepted, the author will be sent an email from the Editorial Board Chairman no later than 29 February 2012 detailing acceptance of his/her paper and the Editor to whom his/her paper is assigned, along with the Technical Review Process Overview and Procedures and Instructions to Authors documents dealing with the review process and the format of ICC papers respectively as attached files. There is no appeal procedure at the Summary stage. The author will then submit his/her paper to the designated Editor no later than 30 June 2012. The Editor will then send each paper to referees, work with the author to improve his/her paper, and have final jurisdiction over the acceptance or rejection of each such paper. Final drafts of all papers, including any revisions, are to be in the Editor’s hands no later than 28 February 2013. (These dates are firm!) The ICC recommends no more than three (3) papers are to be submitted by any single author. Exceptions should be requested in writing to the Editorial Board Chairman (dates above still hold).
Papers dealing with the age of the earth/universe must be from a young-earth perspective. Papers from an old-earth, geocentric, anti-relativity, or anti-quantum mechanics perspectives will not be considered.
The Conference theme is partitioned into major areas, and each area is partitioned into sub-areas overseen by ICC Editors.
