Scholarly papers and panel/special session proposals for presentation and publication in the refereed congress proceedings are invited. See also Awards
Paper presentations and special session discussions on the impact of technology on global business are most desirable, though all aspects of global business are of interest. Theoretical, conceptual, and empirical papers, using qualitative and quantitative methodologies, are solicited. Every paper submitted for consideration must have a global orientation and focus and must be scholarly in format.
Three types of papers--refereed, work-in-progress, and special session/panel are accepted for consideration. All submissions must adhere to the following instructions:
If you wish to have your paper appear in the published congress proceedings, submit either an electronic copy or three hard copies of your complete manuscript, not exceeding 25 pages, double-spaced, to the appropriate track chair on or before March 26, 1999, though earlier submissions are strongly encouraged. Papers will be reviewed and final decisions will be made no later than April 30. Revisions should be expected.
Final manuscripts, in required format, with changes consistent with requested revisions, must be received by May 21, 1999.
Submit an electronic copy or three hard copies of an abstract of works-in-progress or panel proposals to the appropriate track chair. None of these documents will appear in the conference proceedings.
Receipt of all electronic submissions will be acknowledged as soon as received. If you want a receipt of your hard-copy manuscript, please provide an addressed, stamped envelope with the title of your paper, your full address, telephone, facsimile, and e-mail numbers clearly written on a small card.
Complete the attached registration form and send it to the Executive Secretary as soon as possible. If your paper is not accepted either for presentation or publication, your registration fee will be refunded to you immediately. At least one author must commit to attending before a manuscript will be reviewed.
Manuscript submissions should include a separate title page on each copy, listing all authors, their affiliations, addresses, telephone/fax numbers and e-mail addresses, if available. For papers with multiple authors, indicate the author with whom we should correspond. List only the title in the main body of the paper, abstract, or proposal.
All papers will be subjected to a blind review process. They will be judged primarily on the basis of original contribution to scholarship, overall quality, and interest to the Association's members. Reviewers' comments will be provided to authors when notified of the Program Committee decisions.
The final copy of manuscripts to be published may not exceed 8 pages, single-spaced, 10-point font, including tables, figures, and references. There will be an extra page charge of $25 per page which must be sent along with the final camera-ready version of the manuscript. Manuscripts that do not conform to the publication guidelines will not be published.
Accepted manuscripts will be published in the congress proceedings only if at least one author registers and attends the congress. Registration fees are non-refundable, though a substitute person is acceptable in emergencies.
Whether attending partially or in full, all congress attendees must pay the appropriate registration fee, and there is no exception to this rule.
Proposals for special sessions and/or panels are invited and must include the following information:
Special session/ panel presentations will not be published in the congress proceedings unless they go through the blind review process.
