Guidelines for Completed Paper Submission for Conference Volume

Papers must be submitted in Microsoft Word format.

Papers should be typewritten double-spaced on one side of white A4 paper with size 12 font and pages numbered consecutively in accordance with APA format. The length of the manuscript should not exceed 8 pages, including the tables, illustrations, references and appendices. The first page of the paper should contain the following information:

  • Full title of the paper;
  • Names, affiliations, phone numbers and email addresses of the authors;
  • An abstract of not more than 100 words;

All included references should be placed at the end of the paper in alphabetical order. The reference list should include only works cited in the paper. Consistent with APA style, the author's name and year of publication appear in parentheses if cited at the end of the sentence. For example, note the following (i.e. Simon and Young, 2006). However, if a source is cited at the beginning of the sentence, only the year is in parenthesis and not the author(s). If a source contains one and/or two authors, both names (surname) are cited throughout the text. However, if a source has three, four, or five authors, each author and the year are cited the first time in the text only. If the same source is cited elsewhere in the paper, the surname of the first author is noted, followed by "et al." The year of that source is also provided when it is cited the first time in a paragraph, but do not cite the year on the second or subsequent citations in that paragraph. If a source has six or more authors, only the surname of the first author followed by "et al" and year are cited.

If a reference is made to more than one work by the same author published in the same year, identify each citation in the text by addition of a small letter, e.g. (Johnson, 2005a); (Johnson, 2005b). When several sources are cited, they are to be arranged alphabetically (according to first surname) and separated by semicolons, e.g., (Baum et al., 2001; Dickey and Fuller, 1981; James et al., 2006). The following are a few examples how to cite sources in the Reference Section:

Simon, O. F., & Young, C. S. (2006). An application of variance ratio test to the Korean securities
     Journal of Banking and Finance, 18, 643-658.
