New Member Benefit

Member Book Announcement Program

Purpose:
The Member Book Announcement Program will provide AECT members with opportunities to announce their recently published academic and scholarly books in the pages of TechTrends—without charge and regardless of publisher. This new member benefit complements existing member benefits and strengthens the AECT commitment to foster networking, professional dialogue, and shared knowledge and expertise.

Guidelines
1. Each eligible book will be announced using a quarter-page (4-5/8” h x 3-1/2”w) display box. The announcement will contain the following elements:

  • Cover image
  • Title
  • Author(s)
  • Brief description (20 words or fewer)
  • Publisher name and website
  • "Available from AECT” and the AECT website will be included as applicable.

2. Authors may supply camera-ready announcements that conform to the specifications above (and illustrated in the samples) or may supply these elements so that the announcement can be designed for publication by TechTrends staff.

3. Eligible books are defined as follows:

  • Published within three years of submission of the announcement
  • Topic is of interest to AECT members
  • One or more authors is an AECT member

4. Book announcements will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Book announcements will be limited to 16 or fewer per issue of the journal.

5. Each book announcement will appear in two issues of TechTrends, though not necessarily in contiguous issues.

6. No more than two books by the same author (or first author in the case of multiple authors) will be announced within a given volume year of the journal.

7. Authors whose books are announced are asked to contribute two new copies of each book for display and sale at the AECT International Convention.
