The most important dates to remember are as follows:

    • The conference will be held from 29 May to 1 June 2017.
    • If you would like to publish your work, email your abstract or manuscript formatted in line with this template to after your online submission is accepted and by 31 July 2017.
    • The proceedings and journals will be published in late December 2017. We do not charge any publication fees.

Within a few days of receiving your online abstract submission, we will notify you of the reviewers' acceptance or rejection, for the conference.

If we inform you that it is an acceptance and you would like to publish your research, follow the model format here and email us your formatted abstract or full manuscript in Microsoft Word. You may do so up to a few weeks after the conference.


Abstracts and summarized articles will be published in the proceedings entitled Conference of the International Journal of Arts and Sciences, in electronic format (ISSN 1943-6114).

Full length manuscripts may be published in the International Journal of Arts and Sciences(ISSN 1944-6934) or any of the refereed journals electronically available through our publishing consortium. The review process for the journals is slower and more demanding in its standards. Although both the proceedings and journals are refereed, research that meets the refereed standards for the conference and the proceedings may not meet the refereed standards for the journals. The selection of a journal, if any, for a particular manuscript is entirely at the discretion of the editorial board members following the reviewers' suggestions.


All the journals and proceedings are in electronic format since this makes it easier to disseminate the articles (click here for a sample article) to international scholars.

Authors will have access to the online issue in which their work appears.

One's research may not simultaneously appear in both our proceedings and journals.

Authors who prefer a hard copy may download an entire issue on their own computer and publish and order a hard copy of it from or any other online publishing service for their own personal use.

IJAS's articles are indexed/accessed in (i) WorldCat, (ii) Ulrich's serials directory, (iii) Cabell's directories of Educational Curriculum & Methods and Educational Psychology and Administration, (iv) Proquest, (v) Genamics, (vi) the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA 2012) list compiled by the Australian Research Council, and (vii) Google Scholar - click here.

There is no page limit on articles. We welcome both short and lengthy submissions. We don't impose a financial penalty on lengthy manuscripts.

Each registered author, irrespective of whether he or she submits a formatted manuscript for publication, will receive a Certificate of Participation at the conference.

Power Point Presentations
At the conference, the presentation room will be equipped with a laptop, a digital projector and a projector screen. The laptop will be set up for Power Point presentations. Linux and Mac users are asked to save their presentations in a compatible format.
