Author Guidelines

Who can contribute?

MacEwan University students who have participated in Student Research Day (formerly Student Research Week) are welcome to contribute works presented at the event for inclusion in these proceedings. Contributing works is entirely voluntary.

What can be contributed?

Students are welcome to contribute files for PowerPoint presentations, papers (including theses), posters, or creative works in any digital format for inclusion in these proceedings. Where applicable, files will be saved as PDFs before they are posted. 

All abstracts for presented works will also be posted to this site. Please contact us with any questions or concerns. 

Why contribute?

Doing so will ensure that these works are archived and discoverable to others, while also providing students with a permanent record of their academic contribution to the event, which can be shared on job and graduate school applications.

How to contribute:

Students are invited to submit works to the university’s research repository (RO@M) and these proceedings that would have been presented at this year’s Student Research Day, which was unfortunately cancelled due to concerns with the spread of COVID-19.

Students who were planning to present will receive instructions by email on how to submit these works in early April.

Faculty mentors will be contacted to approve these works before they appear online.

Please contact with any questions or concerns.

A note about publishing presented works... 

In addition to contributing to these proceedings, students are encouraged to submit papers, posters, and creative works to the MacEwan University Student eJournal ( for consideration. These Student Research Day works do not require a letter of faculty endorsement as part of the typical MUSe submission process. 

If there are plans to submit presented work for formal publication elsewhere, students should first ensure that any publisher(s) they have in mind do not require exclusive rights to submitted works. Most publishers allow researchers to openly share early versions of works prior to peer-review, however, this is not always the case. Any MacEwan University librarian can help look into this if needed.
