Before submission - quality standards and case testing
ecch does not consider a case to be 'finished' or ready for submission and distribution until it has been comprehensively tested in the classroom. You will need to give full details of the class(es), time(s) and venue(s) of this testing on the submission form.
Cases are designed for teaching and the end user will always be the final judge of how successful a case is. ecch takes very seriously its duty of care to members and to all those who order cases for teaching. This includes a responsibility to ensure teaching materials in the catalogue are of the highest quality.
Because ecch registers, in good faith, all cases that have been correctly submitted, individuals and organisations are required to certify that the case meets professional quality standards and that it has been authored in an ethical manner (eg no plagiarism).
The submission process
Submitting your finished case to ecch is a straightforward process and we have developed a downloadable pack to help you.
Your case is given an ecch cover sheet, which carries its title, author(s), logo of the author's institution(s) and its individual ecch reference number. This will be used throughout the database and for ordering. The case is then prepared in its final catalogue form as a pdf and a master copy is sent to authoring faculty for their own use. Videos, DVDs and CD-ROMs are given special covers and labels. Bibliographical details of your case are entered into the on-line case search database and an inspection copy is posted that will be available for authorised users to preview.
Your case will be listed in the next monthly e-mail update service, which goes to over 26,000 subscribers worldwide. If you are interested in having your case featured on the ecch website please contact Antoinette Mills, Media and Systems Development Manager.
