Submission and Review Process

All submissions will be made electronically. Authors may submit full-length papers, research-in-progress, or abstracts using the AmHighEd website at  Full-length papers will be double blind reviewed. All papers must describe original and unpublished research. Publication in the proceedings does not preclude subsequent publication in other journals when proper acknowledgments are made. The manuscript submission deadline has been extended to August 30, 2010.


Any individual author or co-author may submit up to three documents - refereed research papers and/or non-refereed research abstracts - to the meeting. The submission of a refereed research paper or non-refereed research abstract means the author certifies the manuscript is not copyrighted, has not been accepted for publication in a journal, has not been presented or accepted for presentation at a professional meeting, and currently is not under review for presentation at another professional meeting (material printed in its entirety in any conference proceedings is considered published). Furthermore, the author certifies his/her intention to register for and attend the meeting to present the paper, abstract, or proposal if it is accepted. At least one of the authors for each accepted paper should register for the conference. All the conference participants should register for the conference.


All submissions must have a title page with the title of the paper (bold type, all caps), general subject area of the paper, the name(s) of the author(s), their affiliation(s), and complete address of all authors including phone, fax, and email addresses (Do not use titles such as Dr., Professor, etc.). The second page should include the title of the paper at the top, followed by an abstract. For full-length papers, the abstract should be between 150 – 250 words. For research in progress and abstract submissions, the abstract should be at least 300 words. The abstract should be followed by a maximum of 5 key words.


For full-length papers, the main body of the paper should immediately follow the key words after one blank line. Do not write the authors’ names anywhere except for the first page. Figures and tables should be placed as close as possible to where they are cited. Appendices should immediately follow the body of the paper (using the first-level heading "Appendix") and precede the references. Papers should not exceed 25 double-spaced pages. All tables, figures, graphs, drawings and pictures should be inserted as objects (i.e., authors must create the figures in separate files and insert them into their final document as objects, thereby allowing the editors to format documents without changing the format of the figures). All submissions must follow the APA style and the exact guideline for submission available at the conference website ( Submissions that do not follow the guidelines will be returned to the authors for corrections.


If accepted, all the manuscripts should be electronically resubmitted in camera-ready format, in no more than 5 pages for inclusion in the proceedings of the conference (available in CD-ROM format only and can be further downloaded from the conference Website).


The best paper will be selected through a competitive blind review process for both business and education areas. The best paper will be awarded at the reception on Thursday September 30, 2010. All full-length papers (face-to-face and Internet) will be automatically considered for this award. Papers that win the best paper awards will be published in the related journals after satisfying the reviewers’ suggestions. The top 5 papers in each area of education and business will be automatically sent for further review for possible publications in the related journals.
