Preparing and Submitting Your Papers

Researchers, academics and practitioners are invited to submit a paper to IASDR2021. Authors should directly address one of the conference thematic outlines demonstrating a high-degree of academic scholarship, clearly articulate their research focus, provide a concise synthesis of the research context, describe the methods used to undertake the research, present the findings of the research and summarise the key contribution to the field.

Full papers are expected to report on complete studies or major theoretical findings. Full papers should be 4000-6000 words in length excluding abstract and references.

Short papers are suggested for reporting on work-in-progress research, new methodological approaches, or completed research. Short papers should be 2000-2500 words in length excluding abstract and references.

For the first submission, authors are expected to anonymise their papers by removing author names and affiliations, as well as acknowledgement information. When citing their own work, please make sure to use third-person to refer to the work. Full and short paper templates can be found here:

Review and Selection Criteria

All paper submissions will be double blind peer reviewed. IASDR2021 will scrutinise the originality and impact of submitted research. The selection of the paper will be based on the quality, significance, novelty and rigour of the research. The review criteria for full and short papers will take into account novelty of approach, methodological rigour and clarity of concept. This will include the validity of literature and overall research intelligibility.
