 EDI 2016 Paper Submission Guidelines – Please submit online

 

EDI Conference welcomes two forms of online submissions to regular streams. Please register (no payment of fees required at this stage) and submit online. Payment can be done later as for any conference. Fees are not fixed yet but are in the region of 195-395 euros, inclusive of coffee breaks and lunches.

                  Developmental papers: These should be approximately 3000-5000 words, including references.

                  Full papers: These are longer contributions of 8000 to 10000 words including references.

                  Some stream chairs allow for an extended abstract (300 to 500 words) for the February 15 deadline. However, acceptance will be subjected to submitting at least a developmental paper in time for the second round of reviews by April 1. Please check the possibility of sending an extended abstract with the relevant stream chair before doing so.

As a guide, should conform to above word budgets, although individual Stream chairs may allow for shorter or longer pieces. The papers should be formatted with 2.5cm margins, double line spacing, and Harvard referencing style (see below).

Referencing style

You should cite publications in the text: (Adams, 2006) using the first named author's name or (Adams and Brown, 2006) citing both names, or (Adams et al., 2006), when there are three or more authors.

At the end of the paper a reference list in alphabetical order should be supplied:

For books: surname, initials, (year), title of book, publisher, place of publication, e.g. Harrow, R. (2005), No Place to Hide, Simon & Schuster, New York, NY.

For book chapters: surname, initials, (year), "chapter title", editor's surname, initials, title of book, publisher, place of publication, pages, e.g. Calabrese, F.A. (2005), "The early pathways: theory to practice - a continuum", in Stankosky, M. (Ed.), Creating the Discipline of Knowledge Management, Elsevier, New York, NY, pp. 15-20.

For journals: surname, initials, (year), "title of article", journal name, volume, number, pages, e.g. Capizzi, M.T. and Ferguson, R. (2005), "Loyalty trends for the twenty-first century", Journal of Consumer Marketing, Vol. 22 No. 2, pp. 72-80.

For electronic sources: if available online the full URL and date of access should be supplied at the end of the reference.


Developmental and full paper requirements

Authors must supply a structured abstract set out under 5 sub-headings as below:

1. Purpose;

2. Design/methodology/approach;

3. Findings if paper is empirical;

4. Research limitations/implications;

5. Originality/value of the paper.

There should be an abstract of less than 500 words in total. In addition provide up to six keywords which encapsulate the principal topics of the paper and categorize your paper. Notes or Endnotes should be used only if absolutely necessary and must be identified in the text by consecutive numbers, enclosed in square brackets and listed at the end of the article. Figures, tables and charts should be supplied within the article itself. References to other publications must be in Harvard style and carefully checked for completeness, accuracy and consistency. This is very important in an electronic environment because it enables your readers to exploit the Reference Linking facility on the database and link back to the works you have cited through CrossRef. You should include all author names and initials and give any journal title in full.
