Each academic paper submitted must address one of the tracks listed in the Submission Tracks section. In all cases concepts and underlying principles should be defined, with relevant background information that will aid the understanding of other researchers and readers. If data is presented from primary research, e.g., patient interview data, ethical clearance and considerations should be clearly presented.
The work should not have been published elsewhere and should not be intended to be published elsewhere once accepted for inclusion at the conference. The length of the papers should be between 2,500 and 3,000 words max, excluding the abstract and references.
In the first instance anyone who wishes to submit their work to the conference must submit an abstract describing the proposed paper. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and of a high standard of scholarship and quality of English.
After the abstracts have been assessed by the peer-review committee, authors will be informed whether their abstract has been selected for paper submission, or not. Authors whose submission has been selected will receive an email with instructions outlining final submission process, guidelines and format template.
Full Papers must be between 2500 and 3000 words in length excluding the abstract and references, and will be of a high standard of scholarship and clarity in terms of outlining the research questions and intent, establishing context, describing and explaining methods of enquiry, and reporting insights, results and contribution to knowledge.
All abstracts and papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed. Authors should not be identified in the body of the paper or extended summary. Authors should be referred to in the text or notes in the third person only. Submission without anonymising your contribution and affiliation is subject to rejection.
Acceptance for presentation in the conference will be confirmed by 18 July 2022. The final version of the full paper must be uploaded to the conference management platform by 31 July 2022 for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings.
Should your abstract be deemed more suitable for the poster sessions of the conference, you may be invited to submit it as a poster instead, and further guidelines will be provided.
