Papers discussing, analysing, and critiquing theories and concepts, or reporting results of completed original research, not published or submitted for publication elsewhere, are invited for submission.
- Submission: 15 August 2013, 23:00 GMT
- Notification: Mid-October
- Final version due: 20 November 2013, 23:00 GMT
Submitted papers should be between 5,000 and 6,000 words (not counting references). Each will be refereed in a double-blind process.
For the initial submission, the paper should be single-spaced, 1-inch margins, 12-point Times New Roman font, no title page. The first page must include title, abstract, and keywords (keywords to be selected from a list to be provided on the submission site).
Acknowledgements and references that can identify the authors of the submission must be omitted from the initial submission to facilitate the blind review process. Submissions should be in PDF format. Submissions that do not include keywords will not be reviewed.
The guideline regarding word count is a suggestion. In making their recommendations, reviewers will be asked to consider if the contribution of the Paper is commensurate with its length.
Authors of accepted Papers will submit their final versions in a properly formatted style (to be specified later). All accepted papers will be published in the IDEALS open repository.
