Proceedings Guidelines - 2020

Due dates for submitting your paper to be included in the Proceedings:


  • Monday, May 18, 2020 if your session was accepted as a Presentation Session or Lightning Talk
  • Friday, May 29, 2020 if your session was accepted as an Interactive Session


Talks accepted for LOEX 2020 will be physically published in Library Orientation Series No. 53 and after a year they will be available to LOEX members electronically via LOEX's website. Handouts can be included in the proceedings, in the body or as appendices, but PowerPoint slides will not. Authors are free to publish/post copies of their paper in their institutional repositories or similar.


  • Use this Word template (.docx) as your base. All articles should be based on this template in order to ensure proper formatting for publication (if you already wrote it using a different template, e.g., last year's, that is OK).

  • Use 10 pt, Times New Roman Font for the text body.
  • Include a cover page in your Word document. This page should have the article's title, along each author's name, job position, institution and mailing address. Also, provide keywords (up to 10) of your choosing.
  • No abstract is required or expected.
  • Your summary article should be no more than 2500 words; this limit does not include the cover page, nor does it include any reference list, appendices, tables, or graphics (these elements are limited to approximately 3 pages).
  • APA for in-text citations and reference list (7th or 6th edition, your choice)
  • Submit your proceedings article, based on the Word template above, via e-mail attachment to contact@loex.org
