NEW Prizes for Submissions: Submit a Paper to DJIM Today!

With the semester coming to a close, we are once again looking for your submissions for our next issue! We are also excited to announce that DJIM is launching prizes for its top submissions in this year’s edition!  This year, prizes will be awarded for the top three submissions.

  • First Place: $100
  • Second Place: $75
  • Third Place: $50

The prizing will be determined through the peer review process.  Peer reviewers will be asked the following questions:

  1. Is the paper a good candidate for a Best Article award? (yes / no / maybe)
  2. Rate the quality of the paper on a scale of 1 – 10, where 1 is poor and 10 is exceptional.

The average of the three peer reviewers’ ratings (1 – 10) will serve as the basis for the Editorial team’s decisions.

We look forward to your submissions (deadline is January 8th, 2016)! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us (djim@dal.ca).

No, being published in DJIM hasn’t resulted in world wide accolades, or strangers stopping me on the street to discuss my views on gamification.  Unless you have a keen eye, you probably couldn’t even tell, just by looking at me, that I made it into the pages of DJIM.

And that’s okay.

DJIM didn’t change the way the world views me.  DJIM changed the way I view myself.  Through DJIM’s peer-review process I was able to experience first hand the way others view my writing.  So often there is a disconnect between what you, as a writer, are thinking, and what ends up on the page.  The peer-review process allowed me to see where I was best communicating my ideas, and where my thoughts were getting muddled by my prose.  As a result, I have an easier time taking a step back from my own writing and viewing it with a critical eye.  Oh, and being able to polish my work to a publication standard is a bonus as well.
