About Inclusion in the Experts Directory

Questionnaire Instructions

IMPORTANT: Read the instructions carefully before submitting your information.  There are some additional notes and clarifications in the Submission Guidelines and the Sample Entry can also serve as a guide.

Quality Submissions: It is the responsibility of the submitter to ensure completeness of the information -- if submitted information is incomplete, it may not be included.  Because this is by necessity a low-maintenance project, we ask you to include information in the form that you can expect to appear in the on-line publication (e.g., do not use all caps or idiosyncratic abbreviations).  The quality of your entry will stand as testimony to your expertise, just as, for example, a curriculum vitae would.

Submission: Please return the information if at all possible in the form provided below.  If for some reason you cannot submit via this on-line form, we can accept it submitted via e-mail -- for this purpose you should contact us for the correct e-mail form at <centasia(a)>.

Indexing: This on-line Directory will be searchable with topic keyword and location indexes.  Therefore, we ask you to provide keywords in ordinary spellings to be included in the index, which will allow users of the list to find what interests them.

Contact Info: Obviously, the most critical necessity is that you provide contact information which can help people find you readily.  We do not recommend providing contact information simply for departmental secretaries or university information offices.

Character Set: Bear in mind that the Directory will include characters in the standard ANSI Latin character set (with extended characters for some European languages, such as accented "e" and "a").  Unfortunately, the web page cannot support such characters as accented "c" or Turkish undotted "i", and you should supply the best equivalent to appear in the Directory.

Before submitting your information, have a look at a Sample Entry or previously submitted entries in the Experts Listing to see the format in which it will appear.

Please fill the form out CAREFULLY and ensure that your submission is as you wish it to remain, as only essential corrections will be made once the entry is added to the list.

If your information does not appear in the Directory immediately, don't be concerned -- we have many other things to attend to, and we'll get to it with time (our target is to update the Directory no less frequently than once every six months).

If you are uncertain whether you are an appropriate candidate for inclusion in the Directory, or if you need other clarifications, consult the Submission Guidelines.  Further questions may be addressed to <centasia(a)>.
