General Policies and Requirements « ANZAM 2016

General Policies and Requirements


  • All papers submitted for presentation at the ANZAM Conference must contain original research that has not been previously presented or scheduled for presentation, published or accepted for publication, and if under review, must not appear in print before the Conference.
  • Acknowledgement of relevant prior research and sources of works, ideas and data is expected.
  • Authorship and credit should be shared in proportion to the various parties’ contributions. Note: authorship of papers needs to be correct when the paper is submitted as changes cannot be made once the paper is accepted for publication in the Conference program and proceedings.
  • A paper can only be presented in one stream of the Conference. Authors are asked to signal their preferred stream from the ANZAM Conference stream list, as well as up to 6 keywords describing the content of their research. The list of keywords can be found on the paper submission site. After selecting your preferred Conference stream – please use at least four of these keywords for your submission, to assist us in assigning appropriate reviewers for your manuscript.
  • Each submission must state, on its front/cover page and first page of the paper proper at the top right, the requested stream (number and title) and requested session format (competitive or interactive). The front/cover page should also indicate if the author(s) wish to opt out of full paper publication in the Conference proceedings in favour of publication of an abstract only. Papers without these indicators will be treated as a submission to competitive sessions with full publication in the Conference proceedings.
  • At least one author for each paper that is accepted for presentation in the Conference program is expected to register and pay to attend the Conference to present their research. All of the costs to attend the Conference, including the registration fee, must be paid by presenters. ANZAM does not pay honoraria for any presentations.
  • An individual can appear in up to three sessions of the refereed Conference program (as presenter, co-author, session chair or facilitator). This is to encourage greater participation and to avoid individuals appearing to dominate a stream or segment of the Conference program.
  • Presenters of competitive papers will have 15 minute timeslots, plus 5 minutes for discussion. For the interactive streams each papers is allocated 8 minutes for the presentation plus 2 minutes to respond to any questions seeking clarification on the paper’s content from the audience.
  • During the Conference, a climate of free exchange and constructive criticism is encouraged. It is also important to demonstrate respect for colleagues/presenters with different perspectives and methodologies/methods.
  • If the author(s) of nominated Best Paper Awards have chosen to opt out of the proceedings they must at a minimum be agreeable to their paper being temporarily available online (approx. two weeks) to ANZAM members. If the author(s) are not agreeable to this then the nomination will be revoked and another paper will be selected for the award
