General Policies and Requirements

  • All submissions for presentation at the ANZAM Conference must contain original research that has not been previously presented or scheduled for presentation, published or accepted for publication and, if under review, must not appear in print before the Conference.


  • Acknowledgement of relevant prior research and sources of works, ideas and data is expected.


  • Authorship and credit should be shared in proportion to the various parties’ contributions. Note: authorship of submissions needs to be correct when submitted as changes cannot be made once the submission is accepted for publication in the Conference program and proceedings.


  • A submission can only be presented in one Stream of the Conference. Authors are asked to signal their preferred and secondary Stream from the ANZAM Conference Stream list.


  • Each submission must state, at the top right on its front/cover page and the first page proper, the requested Stream (number and title).


  • At least one author for each submission that is accepted for presentation in the Conference program is expected to register for the Conference to present their research. ANZAM does not pay honoraria for any presentations.


  • An individual can appear in up to three sessions of the refereed Conference (as presenter, co-author, session chair or facilitator). This is to encourage greater participation and to avoid individuals appearing to dominate a Stream or segment of the Conference program.


  • During the Conference, a climate of free exchange and constructive criticism is encouraged. It is also important to demonstrate respect for colleagues/presenters with different perspectives and methodologies/methods.


  • If the author(s) of submissions that are nominated Best Paper Awards have chosen to opt out of the proceedings, they must at a minimum be agreeable to their submission being temporarily available online (approx. two weeks) to ANZAM members. If the author(s) are not agreeable to this then the nomination will be revoked, and another submission will be selected as a nominee for the award.
