INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMISSION OF PAPERS

Authors must adhere to the following guidelines.

1. Email all manuscripts to:

(i) Professor Gabriel Ogunmokun, Executive Conference Director/ Program Chair using the following email address: ogunmokun@academyofworldbusiness.com;

(ii) Copy your email to the track chair(s). If necessary authors can contact the Executive Conference Director/ Program chair to seek guidance on matching their papers to track area(s).  When the manuscript is received it will be sent out to be double-blind, peer-reviewed. Outcomes of paper submissions will be sent within 3-4 weeks of receiving papers.

2. Manuscripts should conform to the Harvard or American Psychological Association referencing style.

3. Each manuscript should have two covers. The first cover should contain the title, abstract, full authorship, authors’ academic degrees, professional titles, affiliations, postal and email addresses, acknowledgement 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.

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.
