You   must   not   submit   papers   directly   via      Editorial   Manager .      Editorial   manager   will   be   utilized only for reviewing process and evaluate suitability of publication of your paper.   The   authors   who   submitted   papers   for   the   conference   do   not   need   to   re-submit   same   for   the   journal.   All   conference   papers   will      automatically   be   considered   for   journal publication.   All   full   paper   submissions   will   be   peer   reviewed   and   evaluated   based   on   originality,   technical   and/or   research   content/depth,   correctness,   relevance   to conference,   contributions,   and   readability.   The   full   paper   submissions   will   be   chosen   based   on   technical   merit,   interest,   applicability,   and   how   well   they   fit   a   coherent   and balanced   technical   program.   The   accepted   abstracts   of   full   papers   will   be   published   in   the      refereed   conference   proceedings.   Prospective   authors   are   kindly   invited   to submit full text papers including results, tables, figures and references. The References should follow    APA format. All   submitted   papers   will   have   opportunities   for   consideration. The   selection   will   be   carried   out   during   the   review   process   as   well   as   at   the   conference   presentation   stage   if the   paper   is   accepted   for   the   conference   proceedings.   Submitted   papers   must   not   be   under   consideration   by   any   other   journal   or   publication.   The   final   decision   will   be made   based   on   peer   review   reports.   Please   note,   it   is   not   necessary   to   submit   a   paper   for   the   conference.   If   you   do   not   wish   to   attend   the   conference,   you   may   directly submitted the paper to the Journal.   Publication cost While   the   peer-reviewed   OIDA   journal   is   accessible   online   without   cost   to   readers,   it   is   not   costless   to   produce.      The   papers   are   available   to   all   users   at   no   charge   and     links   to   the   full   text   can   be   found   in   the   SSRN   eLibrary.   Achieving   open   and   easy   access   to   modern   research   via   online   will   require   new   cost   recovery   models   and financing   mechanisms.   The   publication   of   a   high   quality   online   journal   is   a   very   expensive   operation.   In   addition   to   all   the   fixed   costs   usually   associated   with   print   journal publishing   (reviewing,   editing,   data   processing,   printing,   and   distribution),   there   are   costs   associated   with   online   publication   (including   software   development   costs, hosting, and user support). The scientific research community considers author charges as a viable way of covering publication costs. Special Note about Plagiarism Plagiarism   is   a   very   real   problem   in   the   scholarly   research   community.   Internet   plagiarism   is   an   epidemic   since   it   is   readily   available   and   can   be   found   in   every   corner.   If you   submit   plagiarized   content   even   without   your   intention,   you   not   only   commit   an   injustice   against   the   original   researchers,   but   you   can   severely   damage   your reputation   and   be   subject   to   legal   ramifications.   Now,   with   the   click   of   a   button,   OIDA   can   upload   a   submission   for   comparison   with   content   from   more   than   21,000 journals   to   ensure   articles   you   send   are   original   work.   ScholarOne’s   plagiarism   checking   feature   makes   it   easy   to   protect   the   OIDA   journal   from   publishing   plagiarized content. OIDA submits your paper (s) to ScholarOne and ScholarOne’s plagiarism protection service to avoid publishing plagiarized contents. OIDA   is   working   with   ScholarOne   and   ScholarOne’s   plagiarism   protection   service   lets   us   quickly   and   easily   submit   a   manuscript   to   iThenticate   directly   from   our ScholarOne   Manuscripts   site.   Customized   to   our   workflow,   OIDA   can   set   role-by-role   submission   rights   and   access   the   iThenticate   link   anywhere   in   the   review   process. OIDA   can   also   pre-define   similarity   index   thresholds,   automatically   triggering   an   email   when   this   meets   or   exceeds   our   set   value. This   notification   can   be   configured   to   be delivered   to   anyone.   OIDA   is   also   working   with   CrossRef.   CrossRef   is   an   industry-leading   non-profit   association   providing   comparison   services   to   help   journals   ensure only   original   content   is   published.   When   your   manuscript   is   uploaded   to   the   CrossCheck   database   for   verification,   it   is   compared   to   all   other   articles   in   their   database using   iThenticate   technology.   In   less   than   a   minute,   OIDA   get   a   full   report   of   the   manuscript’s   similarity   to   all   others   in   the   system. This   Overall   Similarity   Index   Percentage lets   us   quickly   and   easily   see   how   unique   the   content   of   the   submission   is.   OIDA   can   make   decisions   based   on   this   score   or   drill   down   further   to   see   the   exact   phrases and   language   matches,   allowing   us   to   determine   if   similarities   are   because   of   commonly   used   phrases   within   the   field   or   if   the   author   likely   borrowed   another   author’s work.   ScholarOne,   a   Thomson   Reuters   Business,   provides   comprehensive   workflow   management   systems   for   scholarly   journals,   books,   and   conferences.   Its   Web-based application   enables   publishers   to   manage   the   submission,   peer   review,   production,   and   publication   processes   more   efficiently,   increasing   their   profile   among   authors, decreasing   time-to-market   for   critical   scientific   data,   and   lowering   infrastructure   costs.   ScholarOne   offers   workflow   solutions   for   the   submission   and   review   of   manuscripts, abstracts,   proceedings   and   production.   Supporting   over   365   societies   and   publishers,   over   3,400   books   and   journals,   and   13   million   users,   ScholarOne   is   the   industry leader.   ScholarOne   cannot   be   wrong.   OIDA   will   not   publish   any   plagiarized   contents   with   any   paper   until   it   meets   the   journal   standards   and/or   it   may   be   subjected   to complete rejection and/or a publishing embargo may be enforced for up to 20 years on the journal.   Paper Acceptance You will receive the admission decision or paper/abstract acceptance within 5 days (in most cases), after your application or abstract/paper has been received.   Extended Abstract writing guide To be considered for review, an extended abstract must include: (a) A working title that clearly identifies the conference objectives being addressed (b) A statement of the empirical or theoretical concern (c) A short summary locating the concern within a wider literature (d) A concise account of the empirical or theoretical methodological approach (e) The main arguments of the paper and an indication of the supporting evidence (f) A statement of the main conclusions and their relevance to an international audience   The   extended   abstract   should   be   approximately   600   words   in   length,   but   no   less   than   400   or   more   than   800   words.
