The first cover should contain the title, abstract, full authorship, authors’ academic degrees, professional titles, affiliations, postal and email addresses, acknowledgment of research sponsors and assistance. This should then be followed by another cover that only indicates the article title and the abstract (this will be used for anonymous refereeing). This second cover should be followed by the full paper.

4. Manuscripts must not have been previously published or be under simultaneous review elsewhere. You can submit (i) an abstract only paper of least 100 words but not more than 200 words, or (ii) a proposal/work in progress paper no longer than 5 pages, or (iii) a competitive paper no longer than 15 pages or (iv) a literature review paper no longer than 15 pages.

All tables and figures should be incorporated into the body of the paper and centered on page. The title should be in alignment with the left margin, above the table/figure in bold letters. (e.g. Table 1: … or Figure 1: … ).  Source (if necessary) should be centered under the table/figure.

PUBLICATION IN CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

For an accepted paper to be published in the conference proceedings, at least one author must present the paper at the conference and must pre-register as a condition for publication in the proceedings. The copyright will belong to AWBMAMD unless you choose to publish only a one page abstract. The conference registration fee entitles you to present not more than 2 papers that you are one of the authors for. It also covers the Welcome Cocktail Party, Conference Proceedings, all Conference sessions, morning and afternoon coffee/tea breaks plus two working Lunches, and the Conference Dinner.  The conference proceedings will be supplied to all conference participants and will have an ISBN. As every AWBMAMD conference is of national and international significance, the proceedings will be made available for sale to the general public. After the conference, with effect from 2016, a Book of Abstracts will be published on the website.

Although papers accepted for presentation as a result of the double-blind, peer review process will be published in the Proceedings (subject to meeting our publication requirements), the publication of the papers is not an endorsement of the content of any of the papers by the Academy. The Academy is not responsible for any claims made in any of the papers accepted for publication in the proceedings. The authors of each of the papers are solely responsible for the content, referencing of their papers, grammar, theories, positions, and terminology, set forth in proceedings. The authors of each of the papers are also responsible for ensuring that manuscripts they have submitted for publication in the proceedings have not been published elsewhere and contain no material previously published or written by another person, except when due reference is made in the text of the paper.
