Virtual presentations allow participants to submit papers for refereeing and publication in the conference proceedings.   Virtual participants will receive a full copy of the conference proceedings in electronic format by regular mail or by online download.

For submissions: here to submit a paper


If it takes long time to get travel request approved at your university and process VISA application, we recommend that you send your paper at the earliest possible to allow us to receive the manuscript to reviewers and get reviews back in timely fashion.  The review cycle time tends to increase if you submit your paper right on the deadline date due to the large number of submissions around deadlines

Interested academics and practitioners are invited to submit:

Research papers: complete papers (5000 words max.) with complete references section. 

Short papers: this could be research in progress, abstracts, ideas you would like to explore with audiance at the conference, or draft of papers for possible co-authorship:  (max. 5 pages or 1500 words) 

IBIMA focuses on real-world business research.  All papers will be directed to the appropriate theme and/or track.  All accepted papers registered by author(s) will be published in the conference proceedings.

Virtual presentations is available if you are unable to attend conference activities in person. 

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and contribution.  It is IBIMA policy to send complete papers to two reviewers for full blind peer review and to send a summary of review back to the author(s) .  Short papers/abstracts will be reviewed by reviewer and/or the editor.  All review comments and suggestions should be addressed in the final submission.  Submitted Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere

Conference proceedings will be published as an e-book on a CD or USB (ISBN:  978-0-9860419-7-6)

*IBIMA reserves the right to accept or reject any research/short paper proposal/submission. Reasons for rejection include, but are not limited to: topics not fitting the conference program main theme or panel subjects, insufficient space on the conference program, failure to meet professional obligations in prior IBIMA conferences (e.g., not completing a paper, not delivering a paper on time, failure to appear for a scheduled slot), failure to register for the conference, unprofessional conduct, or any other reason.
