All submissions for AMIS 2017 need to be made electronically, via the official submission system of AMIS, within the indicated deadlines (see deadlines on the bottom of this page or in the Deadlines section).
The author submitting the paper(s) becomes the corresponding author for the paper(s). He or she assumes full responsibility for the management of the paper(s), correspondence with the organizing committee, possible modifications required by the Scientific Committee of the conference, communication with the paper(s) co-authors, and any other responsibilities assimilated with this relationship.
Only the corresponding author is authorized to modify the paper’s title, keywords and abstract, to add co-authors, and to upload the two files containing the paper, for the paper(s) he or she submitted. The corresponding author has full rights of management of the submitted papers, including co-authors management. The corresponding author needs to add him/herself as an author to the paper they submit.
Please visit the “Information for authors” page for the compulsory editing requirements (“AMIS-defined style”) to be followed for the submitted papers. These ensure the homogeneity of the papers, especially for indexing and coverage purposes.
The conference organizing committee offers a fast-track option for papers submitted to AMIS 2017 to Journal of Accounting and Management Information Systems (JAMIS). To submit their paper to JAMIS for a fast-track review, correspondence authors are asked to select this option on the submission page.
In order to submit a paper to AMIS, the corresponding author first needs to register on the conference’s website. Then, he/she may submit a maximum of 2 paper(s) on their own behalf and that of any coauthor(s). In order to submit a paper to AMIS:
To sign up for the AMIS Conference Members Area, click the 'Sign up here' link in the Members area login page on the conference’s website. You will be taken to the registration form page. Sign-up with your email address and hit 'Send code'. A code will be automatically sent to the email address you provided. You need to paste that code in the 'Reg. code' textbox on the registration form, in order to confirm ownership of the email address. Click the 'Check code' button. You should receive an e-mail within seconds. If the email containing your code is delayed, please check your spam folder as well, as the email might have been spammed.
Once your code is checked, you may set your personalized password and input your details. Should you wish to receive an invoice for your conference fee, you may also input invoicing details. The signing-up procedure is only needed once, as credentials remain active thereafter.
When indicating your affiliation, you should choose one from the list of default affiliations. If your affiliation is not listed, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a request to add your affiliation. Please double check that your affiliation is not listed before emailing us, to avoid any delays in your registration.
Once signed-up, you will be taken to the 'Login' page, where you may now log in with the credentials used during the sign-up process (email address and password). If anytime you have forgotten your password, you may recover it via the Recover password link, and follow the instructions sent to your indicated email address.
The organizing committee may assign you with both an author (default) and/or a reviewer (optional) role within the system. If you are invited to review papers for AMIS, the organizing committee will automatically assign you the reviewer role. When you log in, you must choose one of the two roles for the current session – author (to submit and manage papers) or reviewer (to review papers). For security reasons, only one role per session is permitted for any registering author. If you need to assume another role you must log out and log back in with the other role.
Once logged in as an author, you may manage papers, pay the conference fee, edit your personal information, wiew the reviews when ready, and also see any reports that correspond to your user account (including your invoice if you require one). When submittiong a papar, once the paper’s title, keywords, abstract and (co)authors have been entered, you need to upload:
Both files must be uploaded in one session.
Authors are NOT to include a cover page in the files.
The paper’s title, the authors’ names and affiliations, and the paper’s abstract and keywords are also to be introduced in separate fields when submitting the paper (on the submission page). They will be used to electronically produce the conference abstract and the program booklet.
Please make sure that the paper’s title, abstract and keywords, as well as the authors’ order introduced on the submission page coincide with the ones in the non-blind Word and PDF files.
These files may be uploaded as many times as the authors consider it necessary, until the paper will be locked for review; the new versions will replace the old versions in the database, and will be subsequently used for review and indexing.
If you do not possess a PDF converting software, you may visit this link to obtain a free version of such software.
If you are invited to review for AMIS, you may do so by logging in as a reviewer. You will be able to download the papers and review them. To review a paper, you need to give a mark to the paper on all and each of the six review criteria (0 to 6): Research interest and significance; Awareness of previous work in the area; Research design and data; Coherence and clarity; Quality of results and contributions. When reviewing the paper, you may also input any specific comments on any of these criteria. Anyway, you must input general comments of a minimum of 150 words in the general comments field, characterizing your review and offering support and guidance to the author(s). An overall grade will automatically be calculated by the system. Your comments are anonymous, but will be released to the authors.
After the acceptance of the paper by the conference’s scientific committee, participants are required to make the payment (see “Conference fee” tab, “General information” menu) and complete the registration form in their personal page on the conference website. Participating authors without papers can complete their registration form without paper acceptance.
