Proceedings and “Best Papers” Information
The 2018 Academy of Management
Annual Meeting Proceedings will be available from the 2018 online program. The
Proceedings includes the abstracts of all accepted papers and symposia as well
as abridged versions of the program’s “Best Papers” (top 10%) as designated by
the division Program Chairs. The abridged (6-page) format is used because publication
of papers at their full length would preclude subsequent journal publication. The
abridged papers are available only to conference registrants of the Academy of
Management Annual Meeting. The deadline to submit the 6-page version of the
paper for the Proceedings is May 3, 2018. Download the Proceedings submission guidelines for best paper authors.
As a matter of business practice,
the Academy of Management does not consider papers published in the Academy’s
Proceedings to be pre-published. We trust that the full length manuscript will
vary a great deal from the condensed Proceedings version and we will, therefore,
agree to review manuscripts of this kind. Also, the Academy of Management does
not consider papers published in the Proceedings of other associations to be
pre-published provided that: a) what has appeared in print is a shortened
version of the paper and not a full length manuscript and b) the author is able
to convey rights to the paper to the Academy of Management and is not precluded
from doing so by a previous agreement.
As a matter of policy, all authors
submitting papers to the Academy of Management Annual Meeting Proceedings must
agree to the terms of the Copyright Transfer Agreement. Submitted papers
without the Copyright Transfer Agreement will NOT be published. After a paper
is accepted for publication in the Academy of Management Annual Meeting
Proceedings, the Academy of Management grants to the author(s) the following
- The right to make and distribute copies of all or
part of the paper for the Author(s) own use in teaching, research or for
internal distribution within the institution/company that employs the
Author(s) provided that such copies are not resold.
- The right to use and publish, after release of
the Academy of Management Annual Meeting Proceedings, all or part of the
material from the paper in any original or derivative work.
As of December 2005,
many publishers, including AOM, do not consider Proceedings articles to be
pre-published. As stated in the AOM Copyright Transfer Agreement, authors have
the right to use and publish, after the release of the Annual Meeting
Proceedings, all or part of the materials from the paper in any original or
derivative work. However, the Academy
of Management recommends
that prospective authors consult with editors of the journals to which they
plan to submit in order to understand the journal’s specific policy on
pre-publication in a conference Proceedings. The responsibility for confirming
a publisher’s pre-publication policy resides with the author.
