Pi Gamma Mu Key
International Honor Society in Social Sciences
The mission of Pi Gamma Mu is to encourage and promote excellence in the Social Sciences and to uphold and nurture scholarship, leadership, and service.

CALL FOR STUDENT PAPERS

Even though Pi Gamma Mu has been forced to postpone its 2020 Triennial International Convention for one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, student members are still encouraged to submit completed social science research papers for the 2020 Convention. Even though there will be no convention in November of this year, accepted papers can be listed in resumes as "Accepted but not presented, since the 2020 Convention was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic."

The submission deadline for student papers is now November 20, 2020. Submitters will be advised within two weeks whether or not their paper had been accepted.  All accepted papers will then be ranked by the Committee of Readers. Up to the top ten rated papers will receive consideration for publication in the International Social Science Review (ISSR), and if published, will be accepted for oral presentation at the 2021 International Convention in Washington, DC.  Early submissions are strongly encouraged.

All submissions must include a completed cover page (see example below), including the title of the paper, the author's name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, telephone number, AND the e-mail address and phone number of their Pi Gamma Mu chapter sponsor AND/OR the professor for whom the paper was originally written.  Students are to include their personal information only on the cover page and the e-mail sent with their entry, to ensure a completely blind or unbiased evaluation when the paper is sent to the evaluation committee. The paper itself must include none of the identifying information from the cover page other than the title of the paper. Completed papers should be at least 12 pages but no longer than 30 pages in length, including endnotes and references; double-spaced in Times New Roman 12 font.  No review comments will be shared with submitters, either verbally or orally. 

Papers need to be submitted via e-mail to Dr. Charles W. Hartwig, Chair of the Committee of Readers, at [email protected], with a "cc" copy to the Convention Committee Chair, Dr. Susan Kinsella, at [email protected].  The papers should be attached to an e-mail cover letter as a Microsoft Word document.  Other word-processing software is unacceptable.  The deadline for submitting papers is Friday, November 20, 2020; earlier submissions are highly encouraged.   

Submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail when received. Chapter sponsors and/or the relevant faculty member will also receive notification. If a submission is not acknowledged within four days of being sent, the student submitter should follow up by contacting the Convention Committee Chair (Dr. Kinsella) at the e-mail address above.

We are encouraging members of Pi Gamma Mu, undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni alike to submit their work. Past conventions have demonstrated that Pi Gamma Mu members have completed truly outstanding research – we look forward to learning about new research.

Now is the time to decide to submit a research paper.
