Review Process, Review Report and Notification of Acceptance

Submitted papers will be reviewed anonymously and authors will be notified of the Review and Scientific Committee's decision within 6 weeks from receipt of the paper. You are also welcome to volunteer to participate as discussants, session chairs and members of the review and scientific committee.

We wish to draw your attention on the following:
  • The papers, because accepted by a publishing sponsor, will be issued at the date scheduled by the particular Journal. Therefore, there won't be any proceedings.
  • The conference publishes authoritative literature surveys and reviews which meet the needs of the broad academic community. Among the criteria we use to determine whether or not a paper is suitable for sending out for review are:
  • Is the choice of a field or sub-field in the topic studies mature enough to warrant a literature review?
  • Are details provided of how the boundaries to that field have been defined to include specific details of what is included and excluded, and why?
  • Is there a synthesis and evaluation of the accumulated state of knowledge in that field, summarizing and highlighting current and emerging insight, while stressing strengths and weaknesses of prior work?
  • Does the review include consideration of how research has developed in the field into sub-categories, concepts or themes that can provide a more holistic interpretation and (re)categorization of that field?
  • Is there a complete analysis of the literature surveyed in terms of discussions of any contrasting methodologies used in the literature, the strength and weakness of particular approaches to studying the subject under review, the quality of the studies in the field, the general conclusions to be drawn from the literature (for example, the current agreements and disagreements contained within the field) providing a thorough discussion of where the literature is now.
  • Are there reasoned and authoritative conclusions as to where the literature is, or perhaps should be going, and what important questions, or gaps, still exist in the field?
  • Is there a clear statement about what contribution the review makes to theory, practice and/or research?
  • We are certain that you understand this "compulsion" which aims to further meet the best work of each.
  • May you be unable to attend the conference, an in absentia presentation could be made for you (you won't have to pay the registration fees, but a fee for the presentation will be required).
  • You will need to register by paying all due fees
  • Pleased note that:
  • The publication fees and the registration fees are independent.
    1. Thank you in advance and remain at your disposal for any further information.
        Kind regards,
          The program Chair
