Submission

Please submit your papers and/or extended abstracts electronically using the EasyChair conference management system. The submission system will be opened on October 10, 2022. A manuscript should only be submitted to one track. All manuscripts and proposals must be submitted by December 4, 2022. For up-to-date information about the conference and related events, please check the conference website. Any questions regarding this call for papers should be addressed to the appropriate track chair(s) or the Program Chairs.

 

We welcome two types of submissions:

 

1. Competitive Sessions – Two types of submissions are allowed in competitive sessions:

 

  • Full paper submissions must be 50 double-spaced pages or less, inclusive of all materials, including appendices and references.

  • Shorter submissions (i.e. extended abstracts) focus on projects that are advanced enough and show good potential. 

 

2. Interactive Sessions – Shorter manuscripts or work-in-progress pieces that could benefit from informal feedback from other participants are appropriate for submission to the interactive sessions. These sessions are held in poster-style or roundtable discussion format that allows for interaction with other researchers with similar interests. Interactive submissions can be of an extended abstract nature and no more than 10 double-spaced pages.

 

To assure a blind review, authors must avoid revealing their identities in the body or reference section of the paper. Authors should do the following:

  • Do not include a front page with author-identifying information.

  • Remove the author-identifying information from the document’s file properties. In Word, this can be done by using/clicking on the “Properties” feature (use Word’s Help resource for further details on how to use it).

 

Please note that submitting a manuscript as a competitive paper does not necessarily mean it will end up in a competitive session. The best papers in each track will be placed in the competitive sessions while lesser-developed papers will be placed in interactive sessions. The number of competitive papers we can accept for the conference is limited and therefore sometimes fully developed papers will be placed in an interactive format session due to space considerations.

After Submission

All competitive manuscript submissions will be subject to a blind review process and will be evaluated based on interest in the international marketing community, relevance to international marketing research, teaching and/or practice, analytical and conceptual rigor, quantitative and qualitative methods (if applicable), innovativeness, and significance of conclusions.
