About Academic Business World
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 as well as reference disciplines within education and the social sciences.
Domains of Interest within Higher Education
- We encourage the submission of manuscripts pertaining to pedagogical topics. We believe that much of the learning process is not disciplines and that we can all benefit from looking at research and practices outside our own discipline. The ideal submission would take a general focus on learning rather than a discipline-specific perspective. For example, instead of focusing on "Motivating Students in Group Projects in Marketing Management", you might broaden the perspective to "Motivating Students in Group Projects in Upper Division Courses" or simply "Motivating Students in Group Projects" The objective here is to share your work with the larger audience.
- Academic Disciplines
- We encourage the submission of manuscripts pertaining to any business or related discipline topic. We believe that all disciplines are interrelated and that looking at our disciplines and how they relate to each other is preferable to focusing only on our individual 'silos of knowledge'. The ideal presentation would cross discipline. borders so as to be more relevant than a topic only of interest to a small subset of a single discipline. Of course, single domain topics are needed as well.
- Academic Administration
- We encourage the submission of manuscripts pertaining to the administration of academic units in colleges and universities. We believe that many of the challenges facing academic departments are not discipline specific and that learning how different departments address these challenges will be beneficial. The ideal paper would provide information that many administrators would find useful, regardless of their own disciplines
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 Academic Business World conference 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 the conference is to encourage the cross pollination of disciplines by bringing professors from multiple disciplines together for social and intellectual interaction.
