Submission guidelines


Presentations, in English, are solicited for consideration for publication - provided they have neither been published nor are being considered for publication, elsewhere.


An abstract of not more than 100 words should accompany each submission.


From 2006 onwards, papers published on the e-JIST website will be automatically generated from the Integrated Content Environment  (ICE), a content authoring system developed by the Distance and e-Learning Centre at the University of Southern Queensland.  

What is ICE?

ICE provides a unified system by which authors, editors and instructional designers from across the university can collaborate on the creation of learning materials, original research, and administrative material. 

Content is authored in the ICE Word template, an easy-to-use word-processor based application, that can then be converted to both HTML and PDF format. Layout and styles are embedded in the template. (For more information about this project, visit the ICE website.)

To assist you in the preparation of your submission, we have developed an e-JIST template based on the ICE Word template. Please download the template installer as per instructions below.
