Submission & Publication

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

Completed research manuscripts (Full papers) should have completed analyses, documentation of results, and discussion of implications. Completed research manuscripts are usually close to journal submissions, but shorter. Authors of accepted papers in this category will present their study in one of the oral presentation sessions. Completed research papers must not exceed Sixteen (16) single-spaced pages and must conform to the AIS-SIG-ISAP 2019 submission template. The page limit covers everything in the submission, including title, text, tables, figures, appendices, and references. Submissions that exceed this limit will be automatically rejected.

Research-in-progress manuscripts (Posters) report research that is promising but incomplete. They are usually at the theorizing or analysis stage. Consequently, they generally include either no data analysis (for studies at the theorizing stage) or preliminary data analysis (for studies at the analysis stage). Authors of accepted papers in this category will need to prepare and bring poster- size presentations (in Large Type format) for discussion at an interactive session. Guidelines for poster presentation will be announced after the notification of paper acceptanc. Research-in-progress papers must not exceed seven (8) single-spaced pages and must conform to the AIS-SIG-ISAP 2019 submission template. The page limit covers everything in the submission, including title, text, tables, figures, appendices, and references. Submissions that exceed this limit will be automatically rejected.

All accepted papers of the workshop are recommended to be published in the International Journal of Internet and Enterprise Management, which is the official journal of AIS-SIG-ISAP. The paper should undertake the double-blind review process. The journal will schedule a fast-track for each submission (one month for each review round) and organize a Special Issue. In addition, we intend to select 3 best papers, and each selected paper will be awarded a Certificate of Best Paper. High-quality submissions also have the opportunity to present as sample articles and get a FREE open-access service, which will greatly enhance the online visibility and citation of the article.
