Paper Submission Finalization Checklist

Submission Process

Before your submission can be finalized, you will be asked to acknowledge all of the following requirements:

  • The uploaded paper complies with the submission guidelines, style formatting, policies & rules.  
  • The title (in title case), abstract, and keywords are complete and accurate.
  • The paper is being submitted to the correct Division or Interest Group.
  • All of the participating authors and co-authors are correctly associated with the paper, and their contact information has been verified. NOTE: If you are a submitting author, please remember to add yourself as an author on the submission. It is not automatically included.

 You will NOT be permitted to add any authors to the paper after it has been sent for review. This policy helps protect the integrity of the double-blind review process.

  • The entire uploaded paper is contained in one single document (including all text, title page, figures, tables, graphs, appendices, and references) and does NOT exceed 40 pages in total length.
  • There is no author-identifying information contained within the uploaded submission document.
  • The final converted PDF was reviewed on the submission site and is the correct version of the paper.
  • This submitted paper has not been previously presented or scheduled for presentation, published, accepted for publication, and, if under review, will not be published online or in print before the Academy meeting.
  • This submitted paper is original and has fully acknowledged the work of others.
  • I understand that my accepted paper will be accessible only to the people who register for the 2020 AOM conference.
  • If accepted, I understand that my paper will be posted in the online program from May to October. An automatically generated cover page will appear on this posted version. It will include the title, author identifying information, and a statement that the paper has been accepted for presentation. I understand that I will be able to upload revisions of an accepted paper during this viewing period. I understand that I can remove the paper from the online program at any time without penalty.
  • I understand that if this submission is accepted:
    • All listed authors who wish to take part in the session at the meeting must register for the meeting. If none of the listed authors register for the meeting then the paper may be withdrawn.  
    • Paper sessions may be scheduled to take place on Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday. All authors attending must be prepared to be available on any of those days.
    • Scheduled session times cannot be rescheduled; session conflicts and personal schedules must be managed by session participants.

    • It fails to be 100% compliant with all submission guidelines including the style formatting requirements.
    • I fail to finalize the proposal by the deadline of January 14, 2020 at 5:00 PM ET (NY Time).
