Although papers accepted for presentation as a result of the double blind peer review process will be published in the Conference Proceedings (subject to meeting AWBMAMD’s publication requirements), the publication of the papers is not an endorsement of the content of any of the papers by the Academy of World Business, Marketing and Management Development.  AWBMAMD is not responsible for any claims made in any of the papers accepted for publication in the proceedings. The authors of each of the papers are solely responsible for the content, referencing of their papers, grammar, theories, positions, and terminology, set forth in proceedings.

A full paper must be at least 5 pages long. The Conference Proceedings will be supplied to all conference participants and will have an ISBN. Since the conference is of national and international significance as it covers so many important business related areas, the proceedings will be made available for sale to the general public. Manuscripts should contain a 100 word abstract and conform to the Harvard style of writing or to the style of the American Psychological Association or follow any other acceptable referencing style. The manuscript must be clearly written without any spelling or grammatical errors. General style/format guide includes:
