ABOUT ABW: style='font-size:11.0pt'>



Academic Business World (ABW)
sponsors an annual international conference for the exchange of research ideas
and practices within the three domains listed below (business disciplines,
learning, and administration). The aim of the Academic Business World
International Conferences is to provide a forum for the discussion of research
within business and reference disciplines in education and the social sciences
as well as research and experiences in learning and administration in higher
education. We wish to promote inclusiveness in research by offering a
peer-reviewed venue for the discussion of research in early stages as well as
research that may differ from 'traditional' paradigms. A secondary but
important objective of each conference is to encourage the cross pollination of
ideas by bringing professors from multiple disciplines and backgrounds together
for social and intellectual interaction.



 



PARTICIPATION:



If you are interested in moderating a session or reviewing
submitted papers,



please contact Dr. Edd R. Joyner (Conference Chair) at href="mailto:eddjoyner@charter.net">eddjoyner@charter.net  



 



PAPERS:



Academic Business World seeks the submission of papers in
all of the following three domains:



 



BUSINESS DISCIPLINES



Papers in all traditional areas of business (Accounting,
Economics, Finance, Information Systems, Management, Marketing, etc.) as well
as any of the reference disciplines are solicited, with particular emphasis on
papers in early development stages and papers involved with non-traditional
paradigms.



 



LEARNING IN HIGHER EDUCATION



Learning oriented papers that describe new or innovative
practices in classroom, laboratory, online, face-to-face, distance learning, or
other learning environments in higher education are encouraged. Manuscripts
that develop a more theoretical focus on teaching/learning are also desired.
The discipline involved (accounting, engineering, art, education, etc) should
not be the main focus, but rather the primary focus should be on the learning
technique/practice.



 



ACADEMIC ADMINISTRATION IN HIGHER EDUCATION



Administration oriented papers that focus on new or
innovative practices in the operation of any academic unit in higher education
are wanted. Topics may include: adjunct vs. full-time issues; budget equity
with other units; any accreditation issue; finding good faculty; teaching vs.
research issues; assessing programs, faculty, students; academic freedom
issues; and others. Please do not view this list as exhaustive; papers in all
areas of academic administration are sought.



 



REVIEW PROCESS:



All papers will be blind reviewed by three or more peer reviewers.
In support of our stated goal of inclusiveness, the targeted acceptance rate is
75-80 percent. Authors will normally be notified of the status of their papers
within 2-weeks of submission. Accepted articles will be published in the
refereed conference proceedings.



 



ABSTRACTS AND PRESENTATION OUTLINES:



While only full papers are eligible for publications in the
Journals listed below, Abstracts and Presentation Outlines are welcome for
presentation at the conference.
