At ANZAM Cairns, there will be two kinds of paper presentation sessions: Refereed Delivered sessions and Refereed Interactive sessions. Original research papers, which may be theoretical, empirical, methodological, literature reviews, or case studies, aligned with the Conference theme (Wicked Solutions to Wicked Problems: The Challenges Facing Management Research and Practice), and/or ANZAM’s research Streams/tracks, are invited.
Refereed Delivered Paper (12 pages)
Delivered sessions are designed for papers that are more fully developed towards a final manuscript. Delivered sessions involve a formal author presentation (with slide display) and time for discussion, questions and answers.
Refereed Interactive Paper (12 pages)
Interactive sessions are held in a roundtable discussion format with shorter paper presentations (with no slide display) so as to allow for more engaging interaction with other researchers with similar interests. These Interactive sessions have the aim of providing more opportunity for discussion about the research presented and the themes that emerge within the session and will be an excellent forum for gaining feedback from knowledgeable researchers in your field. Interactive sessions are ideal for shorter manuscripts (e.g. research notes), work-in-progress pieces and also more developed papers that could still benefit from feedback and discussion with other researchers.
Note: page limits do not include references, tables/figures, cover page.
Please note that submitting a manuscript as a Refereed Delivered paper does not necessarily mean it will end up in a Refereed Delivered paper session. Oftentimes very good papers end up in a Refereed Interactive session because of lack of space on the program or lack of fit with any of the existing Refereed Delivered sessions.
Conference papers should be prepared as a Microsoft Word document and conform to the editorial guidelines and formatting specified for ANZAM Conference papers. Please refer to the ANZAM Conference Paper Style Guide and ensure you read the General Policies and Requirements and Paper Guidelines before submitting your paper. All papers submitted for both Refereed Delivered and Refereed Interactive sessions will be subject to double-blind peer review.
