JMSACL

Article Overviews
Article Teasers. A podcast to attract readers to the journal and to provide the author(s) with an easy (minimal time commitment) opportunity to promote their manuscript. Some amount of selectivity should be used in deciding which articles will be chosen. Podcast to be distributed concurrent with (or within one week of) publication.
Length: 5-10 minutes
Format: Audio Only
Structured: Yes
Journal Club
In-depth discussion of an article published in JMSACL. A power point presentation (including: introduction, hypothesis, results (using figures and tables from the manuscript), discussion questions, and discussion) is created by the authors and sent to readers via email (along with a link to the manuscript) within one month of publication. A podcast is published along with the powerpoint.
Length: 30 - 60 minutes
Format: Audio or Audio + Video
Structured: Yes

Connect

Meet-the-Experts
This podcast includes several participants willing to share their opinion on a focus topic. A list of questions are sent to the participants in advance, so they have time to generate well thought-out responses. These can be stand-alone podcasts, or followed with an opinion paper in a special issue of JMSACL with the participants listed as authors (Topic of special Issue = Topic of Podcast).
Length: 30 - 90 minutes
Format: Audio or Audio + Video
Structured: Yes
