Submission Guidelines

We are inviting submission of original research, which may be theoretical, empirical, methodological, literature reviews, or case studies. Each submission must align with one of the ten ANZAM Conference Streams.


All research submissions to the Conference will be subject to double blind review.


Ensure you read the General Policies & Requirements section before submitting.


The 2023 ANZAM Conference is offering two paper submission options (12-page paper, 1500-2000 word structured format) as well as two presentation options (presented, interactive). Authors should choose the combination of options that best suit their research and requirements. Both formats can be published in the proceedings in full or abstract only.

The 12-page paper format used at previous ANZAM conferences is still available to all authors. However, a shorter (1500-2000 word) Structured Format submission is also available in 2023. Authors choosing the structured format option must address the section headings in the style guide. Both submission types will be reviewed equivalently, with respect to the same review criteria.


Conference paper submissions should be prepared as a Microsoft Word document for review, and a PDF document with cover page for publication in the Proceedings. All submissions must conform to the editorial guidelines and formatting specified for the ANZAM Conference. Please refer to the ANZAM Conference Style Guides for details.

Each submission must state the requested Stream (number and title), on the top right of its front/cover page and on the first anonymous (text) page. If Stream Chairs view a submission as not fitting the Stream, it may be referred to a more aligned Stream for consideration.


For use in your submission, the following document contains descriptions of each of the Conference Streams:

At the time of submission, authors can choose which of the two presentation formats they would like to be considered for: Refereed Presented or Refereed Interactive sessions.


Refereed Presented Submissions

Presented sessions involve a formal author presentation (with slide display) and time for discussion, questions, and answers. These sessions are designed for submissions that are more fully developed and nearing a final manuscript.


Refereed Interactive Submissions

Interactive sessions are held in a roundtable discussion format. Here the presentation will be shorter to allow for more engaging discussion with researchers with similar interests, as well as constructive feedback from the session chair or another academic colleague.

These interactive sessions are ideal for less fully developed research, work-in-progress pieces as well as those seeking the opportunity for further collaboration.
