The journal is a forum presenting high-quality research in both social and applied science to a broad audience of communities working in international development. The articles will appeal to social and applied scientists, both inside and outside academia, as well as non specialists. In addition, the OIDA International Journal of Sustainable Development publishes specially-commissioned feature articles and the proceedings of papers presented at its International Conference on Sustainable Development which focuses on the synthesis and integration of applied research and its application to future research agendas.   International Conference on Sustainable Development The International Conference on Sustainable Development is jointly presented by the Ontario International Development Agency (OIDA) and the International Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Law (ICIRL) at Laurentian University in Canada.   Ontario International Development Agency (OIDA) and International Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Law  (ICIRL) will connect with host country partner as a knowledge hub to organize the International Conference on Sustainable Development. The conference is providing an inter-disciplinary forum on global sustainable development for practitioners and academics. The Conference is serving as a forum to foster dialogue among various stakeholders, including senior level policy makers, academics, and practitioners.   The conference also proposes multidisciplinary strategies for economic, socio-political, cultural, and institutional changes. The conference aims to exchange and share all stakeholders' experiences and research results about all aspects of sustainable human and social development, and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted. This conference provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and apply experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations, and to find global partners for future collaboration   Objective The Agency's objective is to provide rapid, worldwide distribution of research to authors and their readers and to facilitate communication among them at the lowest possible cost.   Publishing platform The Agency has established a "partner in publishing" with Social Science Research Network, (SSRN) USA . OIDA International Journal of Sustainable Development is hosted by Social Science Research Network (SSRN), a publishing platform for academic journals.   Publisher: Ontario International Development Agency, Canada.   Indexing All Accepted papers will be indexed in DOAJ, SSRN, EBSCO and AMICUS, Library and Archives Canada's database to,  ensure  its permanent preservation for present and future generations.   Publication Frequency 12 issues per year   Submission Procedure   Authors are invited to submit papers directly to the Journal or respective conference.  In both cases, abstracts or extended abstract must submit in editable format (.doc and .docx)  and shuould send via e-mail to   oida@ontariointernational.org   with a  submission form.   Please download  submission form here .

All conference papers will  automatically be considered for journal publication.

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.
