SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

  • Submissions may take the form of either theoretical or empirical papers, posters, panel discussions, symposia, cases, or experiential learning sessions. All submissions are to be written in English, follow Academy of Management guidelines available at AOM.org, and be made via the conference website at www.eaom.org before the submission deadline.
  • Your paper must not have been previously presented or scheduled for presentation at EAM. 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.

  • If your submission is accepted, at least one author (for symposia/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.
  • 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.

MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING FOR PAPERS

  • Submission should be a maximum of 20 double-spaced pages of text, with no more than 10 additional pages of tables, figures, references and appendices.
  • Your manuscript should be submitted as a Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format file. 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). Manuscripts should be prepared in Times New Roman Font, Font size 12.
  • 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 (this does not apply to symposia/panels and workshops as they are not blind reviewed).

MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING FOR PANELS AND SYMPOSIA

Proposals for panels or symposia are not 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. Panel/Symposia may run for 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions, depending on space available. In your proposal, please include:

  • Proposal title, names and contact information for all participants
  • An overview of the panel/symposium
  • A synopsis of each participant’s contribution
  • A ranking of preferred time options (30, 45 or 60 minutes)

ELA TRACK SUBMISSION GUIDELINES & SAMPLE

MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING FOR EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING EXERCISES

  • Experiential exercises include structured activities, role plays, simulations and other forms that create active student involvement.  Exercises should be original or represent substantial modifications of existing exercises (if a modification, also include the original exercise as an appendix)
  • Your manuscript should be submitted as a Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format file. 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). Manuscripts should be prepared in Times New Roman Font, Font size 12.
  • 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.
  7. References
  8. Appendices –a copy of the complete exercise and any handouts, materials or resources used in the exercise.
  • Submissions generally should be no longer than 30 pages including appendices, but may be shorter if the above parts are all included.

POSTER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

To submit a poster, you’ll need to have 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.
    • Authors and co-authors
    • Summary The summary should describe the study in detail, including methods and results (up to 1000 words). You may include references, which count toward the word limit.
