Doctoral Symposium in the Global Conference on Innovations in Management

Along with the Global Conference on Innovations in Management, Doctoral researchers (PhD scholars) are strongly encouraged to attend and participate in the doctoral symposium which is being held concurrently. The doctoral symposium offers PhD scholars the opportunity to share their research or ideas with other like-minded individuals and get feedback. You can submit an abstract of your research. The research can be in any stage of the process. You will benefit from getting feedback on your work, meeting other students who may be doing similar work and the opportunity to network with people from all across the globe. The conference will also organize a ‘meet the editors’ event, where you will have the opportunity to meet with journal editors to find out what it takes to get your work published. For more info, please visit the Global Conference on Innovations in Management page.

The Global Conference on Innovations in Management will take place in London, UK from July 21-22, 2011. The conference is dedicated to research and best practice within the business and management areas, both within the public as well as the private sector. The call for papers is now open. The conference offers researchers a chance to present their work in all areas of business and management as well as having their work published in both the conference proceedings and a referred journal. The conference also offers participants an excellent learning opportunity.

Journal Publication


CIBMP has teemed up with a number of journals for various conferences. In our last conference, two journals sponsored special issues for the CIBMP. The International Journal of Online Marketing and the International Journal of Finance and Management published over 30 papers in two special issues.

Similarly for the Global Conference 2011 we have teamed up with the International Journal of “Innovatory Marketing” and to International Journal of Finance and Management publish special issues. Each journal will have their own selection criteria. It is recommended that you visit the sites of these journals to get more info. Also, please note that CIBMP itself does not run these journals, nor do we manage them. If you have questions related to these journals, please contact them directly.

Quick paper selection process


All papers are blind peer reviewed. However, we endeavor to get back to you in the shortest possible time frame. The conference works on a first come, first reserve basis. Once a paper has been submitted, it will be sent off to reviewers. If the paper passes the criteria for selection, i.e. it gets enough marks from the reviewers, a notification will be sent immediately. Hence, there is no need to wait for deadlines, and you as the author will get a reply in a short period of time, allowing you to make appropriate arrangements for your travel, etc.
