SUBMISSION TYPES

Long Papers

Long papers should discuss, analyze, critique theories and concepts, or report original, unpublished research; all papers must be substantiated by experimentation, simulation, theoretical development, analysis or application in practice. Submissions will be judged on such criteria as quality of content, significance for theory, relevance for practice, method, design, originality, and quality of presentation.

  • Length: The maximum length for a paper, including references, is 10 pages, single-spaced; submissions should be formatted according to the AM18 Proposal Template.
  • Peer Review: Submissions will be referred in a double-blind review process and should be anonymized.

Short Papers

Short papers are similar to long papers in terms of scope, but may also report work in progress. Submissions will be judged on such criteria as quality of content, significance for theory, relevance for practice, method, design, originality, and quality of presentation.

  • Length: The maximum length for a paper, including references, is 4 pages, single-spaced; submissions should be formatted according to the AM18 Proposal Template.
  • Peer Review: Submissions will be referred in a double-blind review process and should be anonymized.

Panels

Proposals for panels are invited on topics that explore emerging cutting-edge research and design, analyses of emerging trends, opinions on controversial issues, analyses of tools and techniques, or contrasting viewpoints from experts in complementary areas of research. Panels are not a substitute for a set of contributed papers; they must have a cohesive theme and promote lively discussions. Proposals should include an overview of the issues to be discussed and must also list panellists who have agreed to participate, indicating the qualifications and contributions of each.

  • Length: The maximum length for a panel proposal, including references, is 4 pages, single-spaced; submissions should be formatted according to the AM18 Proposal Template.
  • Peer Review: Panel proposals undergo single-blind review process and should not be anonymized.

Visual Presentations

Submissions are also invited for visual presentation via poster, demonstration, video, etc. at the meeting. Visual presentations are expected to invite questions and discussion and offer a unique opportunity to present late-breaking results, work in progress, or research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical format. Authors are expected to address how the work will be presented at the meeting.

  • Length: Proposals for visual presentations should be 2-pages in length, single-spaced and including references; submissions should be formatted according to the AM18 Proposal Template.
  • Peer Review: Submissions will be referred in a double-blind review process and should be anonymized.

Workshops

Workshops will be held before or after the conference. The purpose of a workshop is to provide a more informal setting for the exchange of ideas on a focused topic and suggest directions for future work. As such, they offer a good opportunity for researchers and professionals to present and discuss their work among a targeted and interested community. Workshops may be mini-focused research presentations, a series of working events, brainstorming and idea sharing, or even teaching/learning a new skill like a tutorial.

  • Length: The maximum length for a workshop proposal, including references, is 3 pages, single-spaced; submissions should be formatted according to the AM18 Proposal Template.
  • Peer Review: Workshop proposals undergo single-blind review process and should not be anonymized.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR PUBLICATIONS

 Papers accepted by this conference will be invited to publish in a special issue in the following journals:

  • Information and Learning Sciences
  • Data and Information Management
  • Pakistan Journal of Information Management and Libraries

The three best conference papers (short or full) accepted by this conference will be nominated for submission to JASIST, a top journal in Information Science and Technology. These 3 papers need to be enriched, expanded and/or extended before they can be submitted to JASIST. To maximize the chance of having these papers accepted by JASIST, three experienced researchers, who have published in JASIST before, will be invited to provide mentorship to the authors of these conference papers. However, the 3 papers will still need to go through the regular rigorous peer review process of the journal.

Authors may also enhance their short papers or posters and submit them as full paper for the ASIS&T Annual Meeting 2019 (a major international conference in Information Science) to be held in Australia.
