Guidelines for Submission

 

The 2018 Global Marketing Conference at Tokyo is pleased to have electronic submission for submitting manuscripts. Electronic submission should be sent to the appropriate track chair in the preferred track. A word document containing the manuscript should be sent as an attachment to an e-mail communication. Please be sure to include complete contact information for the contact person. An e-mail response will be sent to the contact author once the manuscript has been received in a readable format by the track chair. All communications will then occur electronically. For those who do not have access to e-mail, you may send four hard copies of the manuscript to one of the appropriate track chairs.


Manuscripts must follow Manuscript Submission Guidelines: 2018 Global Marketing Conference at Tokyo and Reference Style of GAMMA Journals and Proceedings (www.tandfonline.com/rgam). Manuscripts should not exceed 5 pages (single spaced) for abstracts or 20 pages for full papers in double space. One-page special session and panel proposals should be sent directly to the appropriate track chair. Submissions will be double-blind reviewed. Please do not identify any authors in the text of the manuscript.


Submission of a manuscript for review indicates that it or a similar version has not been previously published or is not under simultaneous review elsewhere. At least one author must be a member in good standing of Global Alliance of Marketing & Management Associations or be willing to join the Academy if the manuscript is accepted. Additionally, a manuscript should be submitted to ONLY one track.


The conference will accept papers and allow authors to decide whether to publish the complete paper in the Proceedings or to publish an abstract only. Upon acceptance, the author(s) agree to the following: (a) to release the copyright to the Global Alliance of Marketing & Management Associations unless choosing to publish an abstract only, (b) to return the manuscript (abstract) in correct format (via e-mail) to the Proceedings Editor, and (c) at least one author will present the manuscript at the conference and will pre-register as a condition for acceptance and publication. Proceedings guidelines, limitations, and restrictions will be sent to authors of accepted papers.
