All paper submissions need to comply with the below submission instructions to be considered for review.
Guidelines to follow for submission of Competitive and Interactive Papers
We invite submissions of two types of papers to the EIBA 2020 Conference: Competitive papers and Interactive papers.
Competitive papers should be close to a publishable state, whilst interactive papers may be in an earlier stage of development. In competitive sessions, the finished papers are at the forefront, while the interactive sessions allow authors to discuss their ongoing research under the guidance of (other) senior scholars.
For information on submission guidelines for the poster submissions and panel proposals as well as pre- and post-conference workshops please see the respective pages.
All papers should be submitted via the submission system (more information to follow) to one (and only one) of the eleven conference tracks. We welcome papers in all areas of IB.
The submission deadline for all competitive and interactive papers is September 14, 2020. As part of the paper submission process, you will be expected to sign up to act as a reviewer.
Please make sure you remove ALL information from the paper which might reveal your identity.
All papers should be uploaded in Adobe pdf.
Papers must conform to the style guidelines provided below.
Competitive papers must not exceed 10,000 words, including tables and references, excluding appendix.

If a particular page, section, or equation is cited, it should also be placed in the parentheses: (Thorelli, 1960, p. 112) or (Thorelli, 1960, Table 1). For multiple authors, use the full citation for up to two authors; for three or more, use the first author’s name followed by et al (no italics). A series of citations should be listed in date order and separated by semicolons: (Thorelli, 1960; Welch, 1981).
Please include tables after the main body of your paper and indicate their position in the text.
References are to be listed alphabetically, family name first, followed by the publication date in parentheses. Use authors’ initials, not their given names. The reference list should be typed single-spaced. Limit the references to only those that have been cited in the body of the paper, including notes, tables, and figures. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of their references. Please check them carefully.
