Full paper submission


Authors are cordially invited to submit papers for the conference proceedings. To make our cooperation more effective, you are kindly asked to comply with the following requirements:

  • The manuscript is author’s own original work, and does not duplicate any other previously published work, including their own previously published work.
  • The manuscript has been submitted only to the conference proceedings; it is not under consideration or peer review or accepted for publication or in press or published elsewhere.
  • The manuscript should be submitted in Microsoft Word document (for the full paper template click here). The file should not exceed 5 MB.
  • All papers must be written in UK English. They must be proofread carefully before submission. To maintain the quality of the conference proceedings, we would kindly ask you to attach a confirmation of proofreading in English to your full paper.
  • Manuscripts should be prepared according to APA (American Psychological Association) standards.
  • For the conference proceedings all graphics should be in black-and-white print mode. When submitting the paper, low-resolution raster figures can be included. Before publishing the conference proceedings, you will be asked to provide high-resolution raster figures.
  • Manuscripts of papers focusing on the discussion of a theoretical issue should include: Introduction to the topic/theme; Aim or argument leading question; Theoretical argument/Framework (may include subheadings); Concluding remarks.
  • Manuscripts should be compiled according the template in the following order: title; abstract (150 up to 250 words); keywords (3 to 5); main text; acknowledgements (if required); references; appendices (as appropriate).
  • Manuscripts, including all references are normally 5,000−7,000 words long. Submissions exceeding this limit may not be accepted for review.
  • Please note that we use a blind peer review process. All papers will be sent to two reviewers and, should the paper require some revision, authors will be sent the revised manuscript and asked to modify it according to the requirements of the reviewers. If authors disagree with the reviewers, they will be asked to give reasons for their disagreement. Should the reviewers’ reports contradict one another, a further expert opinion will be sought. The final decision on a manuscript is made by the Editorial Board.
After the initial round of abstract review, all accepted and registered authors will be invited to submit full paper submissions for the proceedings publications. All manuscripts must be submitted electronically on our website until 31 December 2017.
