Paper Submission

 

ProMAC 2017 welcomes original manuscripts that are not under consideration by another journal. The article subjects must be pertinent to the project management. The manuscripts are peer-reviewed by two or more blinded reviewers. The proceedings of the ProMAC 2017 are issued with ISBN granted. Manuscripts published in the proceedings of the ProMAC 2017 become the sole property of the Society of the Project Management.

 

Submission of a manuscript to the ProMAC 2017 should present original work; it is the author(s)’s responsibility for not infringing copyrights (e.g. pictures, citations, including self-citations). Submission of a manuscript to the ProMAC 2017 also implies that the article in English is original and that no portion is under consideration elsewhere or has been previously published in any language in any form other than as an abstract. Previous publication includes publishing as a component of symposia, proceedings, transactions, books or chapters, articles published by invitations or reports of any kind, as well as in electronic databases of a public nature. Contributions having any commercial interest will not be published in the proceedings of the ProMAC2017.
