Description: The lack of quality in symposia proceedings has recently been criticized by Bart and Anderson (1981). Their criticisms elicited 2 defenses of publishing symposia proceedings (Ca- pen 1982, Finch et al. 1982). These authors offered excellent suggestions for improving the quality of published proceedings: review papers before acceptance; use outside reviewers; request revisions; reject low quality papers; establish a strong organizing committee; and recognize proceedings as citable works. In this paper we build on these suggestions and offer additional guidelines for improving the quality of symposia and their published proceedings.
