Management and Business Academy

International Business Conference

8 - 10 July, 2016

Venue: Brunel University London

The Management and Business Academy (MBAcademy) is delighted to welcome you to our annual MBAcademy conference. The aim of MBAcademy is to bring together academic and professional researchers, scholars and students to exchange and share their research about all aspects of Business, Management and Marketing.

In order to support and encourage interdisciplinary engagement, it is our intention to create the possibility of starting dialogues between the parallel events running during this conference. Delegates are welcome to attend up to two sessions in each of the concurrent conferences. We also propose to produce cross-over sessions between these groups.


What to Send

Proposals will also be considered on any related theme. Proposals of between 200 and 250 words should be submitted by June 15, 2016. You will be notified whether your abstract is accepted by June 20, 2016. All full paper submissions are subject to a double blind peer review process. Accepted submissions will be published in Organisational Studies and Innovation Review (E-ISSN:2056-2256 and P-ISSN: 2059-2264) as one volume which will be available both online on conference website after one month of conference and limited hard copy during the conference on 8-10 of July to purchase. Papers should not be more than 3000 words (including all tables and bibliography).

Selected papers will be asked to be developed in order to be published in the JOSI (Journal of Organisational Studies and Innovation); JOSI is a double blind peer reviewed journal which publishes high quality articles, research papers, conceptual papers and case studies. If your paper is being selected for publication in our JOSI you would be asked to review your paper and submit the final version restricted to the word limit of 6000 (excluding tables, figures and bibliography) by 25th of July 2016 to journal@mbacademy.org.uk. There is no publication fee involved if the authors are fully registered for the conference.

All abstracts will go through double blind peer review. Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as bold, italics or underline). We will acknowledge receipt and reply to all proposals submitted. If you do not receive a reply from us in a week, you should assume we did not receive your proposal; it might be lost in cyberspace! We suggest, then, to look for an alternative electronic route or resend.
