Conference on Entrepreneurship and Human Rights, August 1-3, 2005

Information Regarding Publication of Proceedings

Selected papers will be published in the prestigious North Holland journal called the Journal of Asian Economics.  If your paper is not eligible for this, you will be notified by Professor Vinod, the editor of the special section.  Page limit will be only about 10 pages for the Journal of Asian Economics version of your paper, so we can include more papers. The Journal version will appear with the usual delays and we expect you to simply cite the Conference Proceedings CD-ROM version for details. In other words, some details pertinent to your longer paper should be relegated to the version published as Conference Proceedings CD-ROM described below.  This is how the Journal of Asian Economics version can be short.  We encourage all authors to prepare two versions, one long and one short, to cover the possibility that more journal space opens up at a later date or in a different journal.  It is good idea to use a slightly different title for the two versions.

The deadline for submission of the short version of the paper for possible publication in Journal of Asian Economics is Tuesday, October 4, 2005. A decision on whether a paper will appear in Journal of Asian Economics will be conveyed to the authors by January 4, 2006.

Copyright Transfer You are requested to transfer the copyright of the version of your paper presented at the conference to us to enable wide distribution of your paper in a CD-ROM or a book.  The copyright transfer will not stand in the way of a publication of a version of your paper in other outlets.  

Paper Format (for mostly uniform appearance on the CD-ROM) and Page Limits
1] The current plans are that Proceedings will be published only in electronic CD format.  A book is not contemplated, but we do not want to rule it our either. 

2] We follow the North American paper of size 8.5 by 11 inches format (not the A4 format). There are no paper margin specifications. 

3] 12-point Times New Roman is the preferred font and MS Word is the preferred software.

4] Color graphics are acceptable.

5] Paper page limit is 33 pages of single spaced text in Times New Roman font size 12-point for all papers.  This limit includes any tables, appendices, etc.  Please remember that everyone prefers short papers. 

6] The discussant comments on other papers are subject to a page limit of 5 pages.  Discussion submissions are subject to a distinct format.

6] Put page numbers on all pages at the bottom right from 1 to whatever.

7] You MUST proofread your paper before finalizing and submitting it to us.

 

Paper Text

1] Title: Type the title of your paper in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, Centered and Bold in 14-point Times New Roman font.

2] Under the title leave two spaces and include author names of all authors each followed by affiliation, address and contact information.  Use a separate line for each author and type single space.  All author names should appear as a block of lines centered. In co-authored papers, the person presenting the paper to the audience should be identified in parentheses as: “(presenter)” at the end of the person’s name, but before all other affiliation information.  If all authors are jointly presenting, there is no need to explicitly identify the presenters.

3] After the author names include an Abstract of less than 150 words.

4] Please write the body of the paper in any suitable format with suitable division into sections, subsections, etc.  Ideally, all Tables and Graphs should be closest to the place where they are referenced in the paper.  However, during the revision process this can create formatting problems in MS Word software causing parts of tables spilling over to different pages.  It is convenient to include all Tables and Graphs at the end. This is permissible.  Any Appendices should be at the end of the paper before the List of References. 

5] Please include a List of References (if any) at the end of the text of the paper. 

6] Reader Recommendations (optional):  Credit to readers and reviewers of your paper:  Please encourage your colleagues and friends to seriously read your paper and make critical comments. If your paper has been read by someone who is willing to formally say that he or she feels that it deserves to be published, we would like to include the name, affiliation and other information about such a person at the end of the List of References of your paper.  Such reader recommendations are optional, but note that they will enhance the impact of your paper, which is what we all want.

7] Biographical information about the authors.  Please provide a short biographical information (less than 100 words) on the Conference Proceedings CD.  You can optionally provide a photographs of the authors (as a doc, pdf, or Jpg file ).  Please make the biographical information a part of the paper itself placed at the very end of the paper, after list of references, appendices (if any) and entitled Biographical Information about  XYZ, where XYZ will be your name.

2] Under the title leave two spaces and include author names of the author of the discussion related comments, followed by affiliation, address and contact information.

Deadline for CD Rom version is one month after the August 2005 conference
The papers will be presented by the authors at the conference in August where the discussants and others will make their formal and informal comments.  In light of the comments we give authors and discussants about two months to revise finalize the text for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings CD.  Submission of the final versions will absolutely close on
Tuesday, September 6, 2005, at midnight.  Please submit it by e-mail to Vinod@fordham.edu.  Be sure to have the phrase “EHR05 paper/discussion submission” in the subject line of your E-mail so it will not be misplaced.


We would like send free copies of CD’s to certain libraries (e.g., Jesuit Universities) and policy makers.  To help cover the CD production and distribution to costs, we welcome any contributions and donations.  The Conference Proceedings CD will be released to the public by November 2005 if not sooner.
