Publication Opportunities

All registered manuscripts will be published in the Proceedings of International Conference on Business and Information. Competitive papers will be recommended for fast-track reviews to the following Journals.

CMR

CMR, ISSN 1813-5498

All full papers accepted in conference may be considered to be published in the Contemporary Management Research (CMR), a refereed, serial publication of BAI conference with ISSN number. The authors may decide to submit or not their manuscripts to CMR. Authors who hope to submit manuscripts to CMR MUST follow the procedure of CMR manuscript submission.

IJBI

IJBI, ISSN 1728-8673

Outstanding papers will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Business and Information (IJBI). IJBI applies a much more rigorous and lengthy review process, and it is more selective in the articles it publishes than does CMR. Whereas CMR is published in conjunction with BAI annual conference, IJBI is not associated directly with any conference. The journal articles published in IJBI are completely independent of annual conference participation and presentation.

EMFT

EMFT, ISSN 1540-496X

Selected papers would be considered for publication in a special issue of the Emerging Markets Finance and Trade (EMFT) , a journal edited by Professor Ali M. Kutan, PhD., Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, USA. Immediately following the conference, the Editor will email the authors of the selected papers and inform them about the submission procedure.

Getting Around in Nagoya

Nagoya is located at the center of Honshu (the main island of Japan) with a population of 2.24 million. Nagoya has a long history and is the birthplace of three notable feudal lords, Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu. Traditional industries like ceramics and textiles as well as key modern industries like automobiles, aviation and machine tools have also developed in Nagoya, and Nagoya plays an important role in Japan's industrial society. Today, Nagoya continues to draw attention and keeps on developing as a Japanese international city.
