How to give feedback at the IAMCR 2020 conference
The IAMCR 2020 conference has opened the online papers segment. This part of the conference is only accessible to members.
All PCR authors have been asked to respond to minimally one paper. Below are the instructions for posting feedback to a paper, for IAMCR members. Co-authors of PCR papers that are not IAMCR members can send their feedback (on the particular paper that they have been emailed) to <pcr.secretariat [at] fsv.cuni.cz>.
Enjoy the conference!
When you go to https://iamcr.org/tampere2020/online, you have to log in first. You do that by going to the upper right hand of the screen, click on “MEMBERS”, and then select “Login”. Enter your login data there. In case of login problems, contact membership [at] iamcr.org.
Once you logged in, you’ll be brought back to the https://iamcr.org/tampere2020/online page. You can see that you’ve logged in, because now, the menu item on the upper right hand of the screen has been changed to “LOGOUT”. (That’s also the place you can log out.)
Then scroll down, until you see part with the title “Online conference papers and sessions”. Move further down, until you find our Section, “Participatory Communication Research”, and click on this item.
The list of PCR panels will become visible. It looks like this:
Participatory Communication in China
Social Media Participation
Communicative agency in later life
Community/Alternative Media Participation
Cultural Institutions and Participation
Economies, Cultural Industries and Participation
Health, Food and Participation
On the Participation of Citizens and Activists
Participation and Development
Participation, Rituals and Stories
Click on the panel you want to see. A new page will open. This is a PCR panel page, which has the overview of all papers in this panel. This is also the place for feedback and discussion.
If you want to leave feedback, scroll down a bit, until you reach the comments section of the PCR panel page. You will first see the previous comments, if there are any.
To leave a new comment, scroll down, until you reach the “Add new comment” part. If you want to respond to a particular paper, please make this clear in the subject line, by writing, for instance, “A comment to Nico”. If you want to make a general comment, please indicate this in the subject line of the comment as well. It might be safer to write the comment in a text editor and copy& paste it in the comments box when you’re ready. Don’t forget to press the “Save” button, which is at the very bottom of the page, on the left-hand side.
To respond to an existing comment, go to the end of the particular comment, and click on “reply”. Use the subject line wisely, to indicate who/what you’re responding to. Also here, it might be safer to write the comment in a text editor and copy& paste it in the comments box afterwards. Again, don’t forget to press the “Save” button, which is at the very bottom of the page, on the left-hand side.
To read/download all papers, you can click on the link at the top of the panel page, where it says “To access the full papers in this online conference paper panel, click here.” This will bring you to the BOX file collection, with the pdf files of this panel.
