Best Papers and Publication Opportunities
About five to ten percent (5 – 10%) accepted papers will be select as Best Papers. The Best Papers list will be announced in conference program.
(ISSN: 1813 – 5498)
All full papers accepted in conference may be considered to be published in the Contemporary Management Research (CMR), a refereed, serial publication of BAI conference with ISSN number. The authors may decide to submit or not their manuscripts to CMR. Authors who hope to submit manuscripts to CMR must follow the procedure of CMR manuscript submission.
(ISSN: 1728 – 8673)
Outstanding papers will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Business and Information (IJBI). IJBI applies a much more rigorous and lengthy review process, and it is more selective in the articles it publishes than does CMR. Whereas CMR is published in conjunction with BAI annual conference, IJBI is not associated directly with any conference. The journal articles published in IJBI are completely independent of annual conference participation and presentation.
Selected papers would be considered for publication in a special issue of the Emerging Markets Finance and Trade (EMFT), an SSCI journal edited by Professor Ali M. Kutan, PhD., Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, USA. Immediately following the conference, the Editor will email the authors of the selected papers and inform them about the submission procedure to the SSCI Journal of the Emerging Markets Finance and Trade. There is a US$ 100 submission fee for all submissions, which provides a free online access to the EMFT and a free membership in the Society for the Study of the Emerging Markets, which publishes the EMFT, and no submission fee for additional submissions during the year of the membership. Manuscripts will be subject to a blind review procedure.
After the review procedure, the authors of the accepted papers need to pay a publishing fee of US$ 1,300 per paper up to 20 article pages (double-space, Times new roman, 12 font size); plus $100 per additional page. This fee is for covering the publication cost of the special issue and to get the papers published quickly without significant publication lags. The fee goes the Journal’s publisher, not to BAI 2014. Authors do not need to pay the publishing fee it until their manuscripts are accepted.
