Submission guidelines

ISC will consider unpublished original paper proposals relating to the above topics of interest. International and global perspectives are encouraged. Proposals can be conceptual or empirical, quantitative or qualitative. Published papers or papers that were accepted for publication prior to the submission deadline will not be considered for the conference. We seek to accept a relatively small number of high-quality papers that target top tier academic journals. Submitted papers will go through a double blind review by a panel of several reviewers. Submissions will be evaluated based on their academic rigor, relevance, and contribution to the field of strategic management. Accepted proposals will be assigned to paper sessions or interactive sessions based on this evaluation.
