Submission Guidelines

2019 MAG Scholar Conference in Business, Marketing & Tourism

Submission Guidelines


Abstracts and/or full papers are welcomed to address any of the paper submission tracks. However, only full papers submitted by the submission deadline will be considered as competitive papers. We accept only English papers. Works on business, marketing and tourism in relation to the digital technology are particularly encouraged. Other works pertaining to the digital economy are also accepted.


Conference proceedings will be published by MAG Scholar and submitted for Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) inclusion. There is no promise of the inclusion but the Conference Directors are trying their best to get all papers included. Selected papers, however, will be published in one of the six indexed journals subject to review process. Additionally, the Best Paper Awards will be presented at the conference to authors whose work represents ground-breaking research in their respective areas. Each Award consists of a certificate and a money prize, and will be announced at the award-giving ceremony of the conference.
