Author guidelines

   In WOSC 2020, a 2 step publishing process is used, based on a supportive peer reviewing process, focusing on providing feedback-based quality increase in the research publications.

1. Abstracts

   Researchers, managers, policy-makers, professionals and students across the globe are invited to submit abstract proposals, of about 250 to 500 words (see abstract/paper template), addressing the Congress topics by the 31st January 2020. You may expect to receive feedback on your abstracts in up to 14 days of your submission, but not later than the 31st of March 2020. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Congress book of abstracts.

   Three step technical submission instructions:

  1. Create a WOSC2020 account at My Account 

  2. Create an abstract, based on abstract/paper template (please submit the abstract and keywords part of the document)

  3. Fill-in the form Add article (please select the Theme AND Section).

2. Full conference papers

   Once authors have their abstract accepted and have registered to participate in the Congress, they submit a full conference paper by the 31st of July 2020. Full papers should not exceed 5000 words (see abstract/paper template) and should be original research. Abstracts and conference papers undergo a supportive peer reviewing process and will be published in the Congress proceedings.

Basic rules

  1. Authors should make sure that the language of their papers meets the required standards.

  2. Authors can submit one paper per registration. For the second paper submission, discounted registration rates apply.

  3. The authors are responsible for the originality and the proper referencing standards in their papers. 


   For the submission please use the abstract/paper template containing detailed authors guidelines.
