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 below and submission portal is now open!
  • 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, methodcological 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, please indicate:
    • The track for the submission.
    • How it relates to the conference theme (if applicable)
    • The submission type: scholarly paper, panel discussion, symposium, poster, case, experiential learning activity, or professional development workshop.
  • If a proposed idea does not appear to fit any of the domains described above, please contact the VP of Program (EAM2022@ubalt.edu). 
  • 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.

Proposals 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: Resilience and Reinvention.  Panel and Symposia may run for 30, 45, or 60 minutes, depending on space available. A panel or symposium can be submitted to only one track.

MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING FOR POSTER SUBMISSIONS

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 (or virtually during preconference days), the researcher stands by the poster display while other participants can come and view the presentation and interact with the author. Graduate students are 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 ideas or 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 key ideas or results rather than the research or experimental question.
  • Poster abstract - The abstract should briefly describe your research ideas or findings (up to 150 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 your research 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.

MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING FOR IDEA INCUBATOR

Idea incubator submissions are an opportunity to further develop a new or existing research. Sessions are structured as roundtable discussions to facilitate coaching and individual feedback.

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

  • Title - Your submission should have a title that reflects the main idea(s) you’d like to explore.
  • Body - The submission may be in the form of a full manuscript or an extended abstract. If it is a full manuscript, it should conform to the submission guidelines for a scholarly paper, even if some sections may not be fully developed at this stage.

If submitting an extended abstract instead, it should describe your research idea(s) in 500 to 1000 words (excluding references). Be sure include enough detail and background so that others can understand your research question and idea(s).

  • Track - Choose the track to which your research belongs.
  • Keyword - Select three keywords that best represents your idea. Keywords are used to organize presentations by topic in sessions.
  • Use APA citation style for citations references.
MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING FOR CASE SUBMISSIONS

MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING FOR EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING ACTIVITIES (ELA)

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).

Each submission should include the following:

  • 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.
  •  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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  •  Provide evidence of student outcomes that validate the exercise learning objectives". For example, were students able to answer specific questions; Did students ask questions that lead to additional debrief or deeper dive into the content?  
  • Demonstration 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. The demonstration should inspire attendees to use or adapt the technique in their courses. 
  •  Appendices – a copy of the complete exercise and any handouts, materials or resources used in the exercise.

Length & Formatting:

  • Submissions (body only) generally should be no longer than 2000 words. This does not include the abstract, references, tables, figures or appendixes.
  • References (in APA style). References may be single-spaced.
  • Your manuscript should be submitted as ONE file in Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx) or .pdf format. Supplementary files may be uploaded. 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.
