Description

ABOUT ABW:

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 eddjoyner@charter.net


PAPERS:

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


BUSINESS DISCIPLINES DOMAIN

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 DOMAIN

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 DOMAIN

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.
