NEIU Faculty Publications and Creative Works Recognition

The deadline to submit materials for publications and creative works produced during the 2016 calendar year to your dean is Wednesday, March 15, 2017. Earlier submissions are greatly appreciated.

Each year, the Provost, the Library, and the College of Graduate Studies and Research co-host a reception in the spring honoring faculty who were published or who produced a creative work in the previous calendar year. Calls for submissions are sent out each January. The guidelines for submission are as follows:

Eligible publication/creation dates

  • Works that were published in the previous two calendar years if they have not been previously recognized
  • Published works are eligible when they are published, not when they are submitted for publication. Works in preparation are not eligible but will be recognized for the year they are completed.

Eligibility

Faculty members must be tenured/tenure track, emeriti/retired, Instructor, Academic Resource Professional, Adjunct, or university administrator with faculty status. Authors/creators must be an active or retired NEIU faculty member or university administrator with faculty status when work is published or created.

For publications

  • Faculty member must be author, co-author, editor, co-editor or illustrator as noted on title page or cover of book
  • Faculty member must be author or co-author of peer-reviewed journal article or book chapter

For other creative works

The dean of the faculty member's academic appointment or their designee(s) will determine the eligibility of the creative work based on the type of work and the faculty member's relationship to it (artist, performer, director, etc.)

Types of materials

  • Publications (previously recognized as part of the Faculty Authors event)
    • Print or electronic books in the faculty member's discipline. Revised editions are included. Library purchases book for the collection.
    • Published lab manuals in the faculty member's discipline (print or electronic)
    • Published textbooks in the faculty member's discipline (print or electronic)
    • Published book chapters in the faculty member's discipline (print or electronic). Library purchases book for the collection.
    • Peer-reviewed journal articles in the faculty member's discipline (print or electronic). Library may or may not subscribe to journal.
  • All other creative works in the faculty member's discipline (including music CDs) that meet applicable department standards. The Library will purchase music CDs for the collection.

Submission guidelines

  • The deans or their designee(s) faculty member's academic appointment will receive all submissions for review before forwarding materials to the Library. Any questions regarding the eligibility guidelines above should be directed to the dean of the faculty member's academic appointment. Materials sent by a faculty member directly to the Library will be sent back to the appropriate dean for review.
  • All submissions must include completed forms with name, faculty rank, department affiliation, contact information, and the citation of the publication or a description of the creative work. A recent digital photo of the faculty member is also requested. Faculty members may contact Joe Davis to schedule a photo session.
    • For books (Form A) and CDs (Form C) - Complete citation information (including ISBN if possible). A copy of the book/CD will be purchased for the Library but should be provided if the book/CD is still on order by the submission deadline. Personal copies of books/CDs will be returned to the author after the event if they are not donated to the Library.
    • For book chapters (Form A) - Complete citation of the book and book chapter (including ISBN if possible). A copy of the book will be purchased for the Library but should be provided if the book is still on order by the submission deadline. Personal copies of books will be returned to the author after the event if they are not donated to the Library.
    • For peer-reviewed journal articles (Form B) - Complete citation of the journal article.
    • For other creative works (Form C) - Adequate description to identify the work(s) for the event program.
  • Deans or their designee(s) should submit all materials to Bonnie Pfeiffelman (x4460 or b-pfeiffelman@neiu.edu) in the Library Administration office by the deadline specified by the Library. Deadlines will vary each year depending on the date of the event. In order to assist the Library in organizing the event, materials should be sent as soon as possible. The Library will need time to purchase books, organize the materials, and create the program. No materials will be accepted by the Library after the deadline. Late materials can be resubmitted for recognition the following year.
  • Any materials that can be loaned and/or donated to the Library for the program (book, CD, journal article, creative works documentation, etc.) would be greatly appreciated.

All submissions must include a completed form for each work.
