SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

  • Submissions may take the form of conceptual or empirical papers, posters, panel discussions, symposium, cases, or experiential learning sessions. All submissions are to be written in English, follow the  Eastern Academy of Management (EAM) guidelines available at https://www.eaom.org/Guidelines-for-submission and be made via the conference website at https://www.eaom.org/EAM2020 before the submission deadline, November 30, 2019.
  • Refereed Scholarly Submissions
    To help protect the integrity of the submission and review process, papers and symposia are blind reviewed.
    Papers are double-blind reviewed, and are evaluated on clarity, analysis, methodological rigor and overall quality. Double-blind review means that author and submitter information is NOT known to the reviewers, and reviewer information is NOT known to the authors or submitter.
    Symposia are single-blind reviewed, and are judged on overall quality, interest to EAM members, relevance to the division or interest group to which they are submitted, and innovation and contribution. Single-blind review means that author and submitter information IS known to the reviewers, but reviewer information is NOT known to the authors or submitter.

    • Your paper must not have been previously presented or scheduled for presentation anywhere. Submitted papers must not have been published or accepted for publication. If a paper is under review, it must NOT appear in print before the EAM meeting.Subsequent publication elsewhere, with proper acknowledgement, is encouraged.

    • During submission you must indicate
      • - one suitable track for the submission, See track descriptions at https://www.eaom.org/tracks.

        - whether it relates to the conference theme

        -  the submission type - paper, panel discussion, symposium, poster, case, or experiential learning activity.

      • If a proposed idea does not seem to fit any of the domains described above, authors should contact Program Chair. Your submissions will be directed to the most appropriate track.
      • The entire paper submission (abstract, main text, figures, graphs, tables, references, etc.) must be in ONE document submitted in Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx) or .pdf file format. DO NOT INCLUDE AUTHOR NAME(S) ON THE TITLE PAGE. Supplementary file(s) may be uploaded to support the main submission.
      • If your submission is accepted, at least one author (for symposium/panels and workshops, every author) must register and present their work at the conference. No participant is allowed to be included as an author/presenter in more than three program sessions. All authors are expected to serve as conference reviewers.

      MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING FOR SCHOLARLY PAPER

      • A paper refers to a fully developed manuscript on a scholarly topic.
      • It should be written as:
        • -   title on each page (no author information);

          -  abstract, keywords;

          -  introduction, theoretical background, data and methods, results, discussion;

          -  references (in APA style); appendices (as appropriate); table(s) with caption(s) (on individual pages); figures; figure captions.

        • Each paper can be submitted to only ONE track.

        MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING FOR PANEL AND SYMPOSIUM

        Proposal for a panel or symposium are not double blind reviewed. A symposium can be in either a panel format or a presenter format. A panel symposium engages a group of panelists in a formal, interactive discussion around a particular topic. A presenter symposium involves a collection of authored papers revolving around a common theme. We are especially interested in symposium related to the Conference Theme: Being Human in the Digital World.  Panel/Symposium may run for 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions, depending on space available. A panel or symposium can be submitted to only one track.

        Your manuscript should be submitted as ONE file in Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx) or .pdf formatAll text in the manuscript should be double spaced, with a 1-inch margin on all four sides.  The paper size should be set to ‘Letter’ (8.5 inches X 11 inches).

          MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING FOR POSTER New category!

          Click here for Poster description

          Research posters summarize information or research concisely and attractively to help publicize it and generate discussion.  The poster is usually a mixture of a brief text mixed with tables, graphs, pictures, and other presentation formats. At a conference, the researcher stands by the poster display while other participants can come and view the presentation and interact with the author. GRADUATE STUDENTS ARE ESPECIALLY ENCOURAGED TO APPLY.

          To submit a poster, you’ll need to submit ONE file in Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx) or .pdf format with the following information:

          • Poster title - Your poster should have a succinct title that describes the main finding of your research. Keep in mind that the poster title will be listed in conference program without the abstract and meeting attendees often use the titles to decide which posters to visit. When possible, the title should indicate the important result, rather than the experimental question.
          • Poster abstract - The abstract should briefly describe your research findings (up to 250 words).
          • Track - Choose the track to which your research belongs.
          • Keyword - Select three keywords that best represents your poster. Keywords are used to organize presentations by topic in poster sessions.
          • Summary - The summary describes the study in detail, including methods and results (up to 1000 words). The references do not count toward the word limit. Use APA citation style for references.

All text in the manuscript should be double spaced, with a 1 inch margin on all four sides.  The paper size should be set to ‘Letter’ (8.5 inches X 11 inches).

          • Your submission will be blind peer reviewed, so it is very important that you ensure that author names and identifying information does not appear anywhere in your manuscript, not even on the title page
          • Papers for experiential exercises should include 8 parts
            1. Introduction to the exercise –write a short rationale for why the topic is important/relevant to the study of management, concepts or theories typically taught, and how the exercise will facilitate student learning. You need not review why experiential learning is needed.
            2. Instructions for presenting the exercise including the following: a) learning goals, b) approximate timing for whole exercise and individual parts, c)number of participants or group size, d) materials and technology needed, e)appropriate level (undergrad, grad, executive), and f) preparation needed for students and for the instructor.
            3. Teaching notes –describe in detail the steps and timing involved in doing the exercise. Try to write instructions that assume the instructor has never seen the exercise before and wants to use it the following day in class.
            4. Debriefing –discuss in detail how you debrief the exercise. Include specific questions for the instructor to ask to process the exercise, hints on ways to make the exercise work effectively, what could be expected when running the exercise, and possible variations in the use of the exercise.
            5. A summary of students’ reaction to the exercise.
            6. Presentation at ELA –explain how the exercise will be demonstrated during a 30-minute session at the ELA Conference. Discuss the extent to which session attendees will be able to participate in the exercise.
