AUTHOR INSTRUCTIONS


General

Authors are invited to submit their contributions in form of high quality theoretical and empirical papers employing qualitative, quantitative, and critical methods, action-based research, and case studies. Papers must present original and unpublished work that is not under consideration elsewhere. Each submission will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers from the domain. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the work at the conference. Please note that the repeated instances of failure in registration once the paper has been accepted may result in a permanent ban on the author(s).

Papers submitted for all SchoRes conferences must strictly conform to the IOARP Paper Template. Please note that the papers not in conformance with the prescribed paper template will not be considered for a review. Maximum length of the manuscripts is 8 pages, however, additional pages can be allowed on payment of extra page surcharge. All papers must be submitted as an editable Microsoft Word file. The IOARP Paper Template below contains guidance for composing and formatting SchoRes conference papers.
