FULL PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINE
The submission of full paper must be done using the online SUBMISSION FORM not later than 15 April 2018 in order to be included in IFKAD 2018 program and Proceedings.
Since 2015, IFKAD implements some important changes in formatting paper for the conference. Full papers must have max 5.000 words (including abstract, keywords, figures and tables and references). The length of the short structured abstract is 400 words max.
The reason for this innovation is that ever more journals only accept conference-based articles if they are substantially different from the conference paper they are based on. Some journals request that the journal article is more than 50% different from the conference paper. By accepting shorter full papers we facilitate the development of your work into journal articles.
Full paper manuscripts should include:
- Cover sheet – including title, name, affiliation, address and email address for each author, indicating the corresponding author
- Short Structured Abstract – structured in following paragraphs: Purpose – Design/Methodology/Approach – Originality/Value – Practical Implications – NOT MORE THAN 100 WORDS FOR EACH PARAGRAPH
- Keywords – max 5 keywords
- Paper type – indicate if your manuscript is Academic research paper or Practical paper
- Content of the article, acknowledgements, tables and figures (included in the text)
Use Times New Roman or Arial font 10 point size.
At the end of the abstract, please include short biographical notes of each author
- Practical Implications
