Full paper submission

After the initial round of abstract review prior to the conference to be published in the Book of Abstracts, all accepted and registered authors will be invited to prepare and submit full paper submissions here on our website until 31st December 2019, for publication in the Conference Proceedings. Authors of the reviewed and accepted abstracts who register to take part in the conference and wish to submit the full paper are kindly asked to comply with the following requirements.


The submitted manuscript is author’s own original work, and does not duplicate any other previously published work, including their own previously published work. The manuscript has been submitted only to the conference proceedings; it is not under consideration or peer review, accepted for publication, in press or published elsewhere. If the author is reproducing copyrighted material (and is not the copyright owner or holder of that material) in the submitted paper, then it is the Author’s responsibility to obtain written permission from the copyright owner prior to paper submission, ensure appropriate acknowledgement and pay fees which the copyright holder may charge.


The manuscript should be submitted as Microsoft Word document. Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance to APA (American Psychological Association) standards (Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed.). The file should not exceed 5 MB. All papers should be written in UK English. They must be proofread carefully before submission. To maintain the quality of the conference proceedings, we would kindly ask you to attach a confirmation of proofreading in English to your full paper.


Authors must prepare a signed Statement on authorship and originality of the paper. This form will be published here.

For the conference proceedings all graphics should be in black-and-white print mode. When submitting the paper, low-resolution raster figures can be included. Before publishing the conference proceedings, you will be asked to provide high-resolution raster figures. Submitted full papers should be no longer than 7,000 words (including references and appendices). Submissions exceeding this limit may not be accepted for review.


Please note that we use a double blind peer review process. All papers will be sent to two reviewers and, should the paper require some revision, authors will be sent the revised manuscript and asked to modify it according to the requirements of the reviewers. If authors disagree with the reviewers, they will be asked to give reasons for their disagreement. Should the reviewers’ reports contradict one another, a further expert opinion will be sought.


The final decision on a manuscript is made by the Editorial Board.
