About ABW:
Academic Business World (ABW) sponsors an annual international conference for the exchange of research ideas and practices within the three domains listed above. The aim of the Academic Business World conferences is to provide a forum for the discussion of research within business and reference disciplines in education and the social sciences as well as research and experiences in learning and administration in higher education. A secondary but important objective of each conference is to encourage the cross pollination of ideas by bringing professors from multiple disciplines together for social and intellectual interaction.

Academic Business World sponsors an annual conference for the exchange of scholarly thoughts and findings. The aim of Academic Business World is to promote inclusiveness in research by offering a forum for the discussion of research in early stages as well as research that may differ from ‘traditional’ paradigms. We wish our conferences to have a reputation for providing a peer-reviewed venue that is open to the full range of researchers in business.

If you are interested in moderating a session or reviewing submitted papers, please contact Dr. Edd R. Joyner (Conference Chair) at

Academic Business World seeks the submission of papers in all of the following three domains:

Discipline oriented papers in all traditional areas of business as well as any of the reference disciplines are solicited, with particular emphasis on papers in early development stages and papers involved with non-traditional paradigms.

Learning oriented papers that describe new or innovative practices in classroom, laboratory, online, face-to-face, distance learning, or other learning environments in higher education are encouraged. Manuscripts that develop a more theoretical focus on teaching/learning are also desired.

Administration oriented papers that focus on new or innovative practices in the operation of an academic unit in higher education are wanted. Topics may include: adjunct vs. full-time issues; budget equity with other units; any accreditation issue; finding good faculty; teaching vs. research issues; assessing programs, faculty, students;
academic freedom issues; and others. Please do not view this list as exhaustive; papers in all areas of academic administration are sought.

All papers will be blind reviewed. In support of our stated goal of inclusiveness, the targeted acceptance rate is 75-80 percent. Authors will normally be notified of the status of their papers within 2-weeks of submission. Accepted articles will be published in the refereed conference proceedings.

While only full papers are eligible for publications in the Journals listed below, Abstracts and Presentation Outlines are welcome for presentation at the conference.
