Full Papers rules

Papers should follow the General Instructions.

Remember, only full papers compete for publication in the Journals associated to ACIEK 2019.

Journal requirements for submitted papers:

Before submitting your paper to a specific journal, you MUST ensure that you have fulfilled all of that journal’s style requirements. There are no specific requirements regarding paper length. Instead, the authors should adapt the papers to the specific requirements of each journal including length, style and format.  

Consider hiring a professional copyeditor to assist with your revision if necessary.

Copyediting is mandatory for acceptance for publication in elite international journals. The SSCI/JCR-ranked journal (WOS by Clarivate Analytics) Editor-in-Chief and/or publisher will reject any paper that does not meet the journal’s style requirements.

Format for Poster Submission

Remember, if the abstract in Spanish is accepted, it is the responsibility of the authors to submit the final working paper for the poster session in English.

For the first time in ACIEK 2019 conference, there will also be a poster session dedicated to high-potential working papers.

Poster session participants will also have the opportunity to discuss their ideas in-depth with the Editors of the prestigious Journals associated with the Conference.

Accepted poster authors must agree to prepare a poster for display, be available to discuss the research and answer questions during the invited poster session. A separate area in the university will be reserved for the poster session.

These working papers presented in the poster session could be published (depending on authors’ request) in the proceedings of the ACIEK 2019 conference with ISBN.
