PAPER SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
Paper submissions to the conference will be managed via COMS (conference management software). Proposals for panel session suggestions nonetheless should be submitted to the conference organisers (firstname.lastname@example.org). These proposals should mention the title of the panel, the session format (e.g. interactive, competitive, doctoral colloquium stream A or doctoral colloquium stream B), names/ affiliations/ email addresses of panel participants, and overview of the main issues to be discussed in the panel.
General guidelines for paper submission:
All papers should be submitted in Adobe pdf format. Before submitting, please make sure you remove all information from the paper which might reveal your identity. Papers must conform to the style guidelines provided below.
Papers can be 6,000 - 10,000 words length. All papers should include an abstract of max. 200 words.
Citations in the text should be by the author’s last name and year of publication enclosed in parentheses: (Porter, 2000). If a particular page, section, or equation is cited, it should also be placed in the parentheses: (Porter, 2000, p. 112) or (Porter, 2000, Table 1). For multiple authors, use the full citation for up to two authors; for three or more, use the first author’s name followed by et al (no italics). A series of citations should be listed in date order and separated by semicolons: (Porter, 1980; Welch, 1981).
Please include tables after the main body of your paper (i.e. in an appendix) and indicate their position in the text.
References are to be listed alphabetically, family name first, followed by the publication date in parentheses. Use authors’ initials, not their given names. The reference list should be typed single-spaced. Limit the references to only those that have been cited in the body of the paper, including notes, tables, and figures. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of their references. Please check them carefully.
For all other style-related requests please refer to the JIBS style guide.
