CALL FOR PAPERS

HSSS Conferences endeavour to provide a platform to foster multidisciplinary discussions and support debates on the different sociological, economical, historical, pedagogical, philosophical, scientific and technological issues surrounding systems studies.

We welcome contributions that build on established lines of work as well as novel research streams. In particular, we are interested in high quality well-defined and analyzed theoretical surveys that provide a synthesis and comprehensive review of the historical development of one particular area of interest, and empirical studies, with strong grounding in a current or new theory, on important issues that have potential impact on organizations and are of value to researchers and practitioners in general and social sciences research community in specific.

Reviewing Process

§ The selection panel of the conference committee will consider all papers received by the submission deadline to ensure that the proposed paper is relevant to the Conference.

§ Paper selection notifications will then be sent out to relevant authors.

§ All full papers will be double-blind reviewed by members of the conference scientific committee to ensure an adequate standard, that the paper is of a suitable length, the standard of English is adequate and the paper is appropriately referenced. Their comments will be given to the author who will present the paper.

§ For authors whose first language is not English we request that you have your work proof read prior to submission by a native English speaker (or at least a fluent English speaker). Papers can be rejected due to a poor standard of English.

§ Papers that are accepted will be published in the conference proceedings providing at least one author registers and presents the work at the Conference (see the registration section of the conference website for more information about registration).
