Review Process

All submitted abstracts and papers will be blind peer-reviewed. Each abstract will be reviewed with respect to the stated topic under which it was submitted in order to ascertain the following:

  • Whether the subject matter is relevant and suitable;
  • Whether the instructions and presentation format requirements were followed; and
  • The overall quality of the abstract.

Criteria for evaluating the quality of abstracts include originality of ideas, conciseness of the presented methods and results, clarity of theoretical and/or applied implications, and quality of writing. All submitters are bound by copyright rules and distribution of material law.
