CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Until April 1st

Authors are invited to submit abstracts written in English within 250 words relating to the conference topics. Abstracts should include the full title of the paper and provide a brief and comprehensive summary stating the purpose, content, and conclusions of the manuscript, supported by 3-7 key words.

All contributions must be of high quality, original and not published elsewhere, or submitted for publication during the review period. A scientific committee will review all abstracts and, if accepted, each paper will be undergoing a double-blind review process.

All papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. The selected best ranked papers during the review process will be published in the special issue of OTMC journal www.grad.hr/otmcj (indexed in Web of Science Core Collection, SCOPUS, EBSCO, INSPEC, ProQuest Science Journals)

 

Editorial scope

The congress draws on insights and contributions from worldwide sources in its quest to maximize its usefulness to its readers and hence the benefits to their organizations. Contributors should specify the practical implications of their work for those involved in conference topic areas. Case study articles are welcome as well.

Please minimize introduction and literature review on the history of the presented problem. Instead, focus on models, tactics, metrics, measurement methods, findings etc., addressing how to make research results applicable.

The conference board (conference journal) is particularly interested in the latest research results and furthering the development of innovative, knowledge-based models and tools, as well as conceptual frameworks (this also addresses the verification and validation of models, tools, and conceptual frameworks) for dealing with present problems in project management.

The reviewing processes

Each paper is reviewed by the editors and, if it is judged suitable for this conference, it is then sent to blind peer review. Based on the referee’s recommendation, the editor then decides whether the paper should be accepted as is, revised or rejected. The Editor and the editorial board can accept or decline the paper based on his/her own discretionary power as well.

Copyright

Articles submitted should be original contributions. Therefore, always either indent text or put quote marks as well as use of the preferred Harvard style of formatting. Authors submitting articles for publication warrant that the work is not an infringement of any existing copyright and will indemnify the publisher against any breach of such warranty. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyright material from other sources. The editor may make use of software for plagiarism detection (e.g. iThenticate software) for checking the originality of submissions received. The conference organizing board nurtures a zero-tolerance policy on plagiarism.

All questions arising after acceptance of the manuscript, especially those relating to proofs, should be directed to papers@otmc-conference.com.

Abstracts and full papers can be submitted by registering to the OTMC conference management system at https://www.conftool.pro/otmc2022

Effective communication

The paper should be written and arranged in a style that is succinct and easily followed. The reader should be carefully guided through the paper. Always think who your targeted clients/readers are. An informative but short title, a concise abstract with keywords, and a well-written introduction will help to achieve this. Try to give few sentences about what are you going to write about, at the end of introduction. Also, try to give few sentences about main findings, at the beginning of discussion. Simple language, short sentences and a good use of headings will help to communicate information more effectively.

Submissions Process

Authors should note that proofs are not supplied prior to publication and ensure that the paper submitted is complete and in its final form. Proofs will be sent to the corresponding author for correction. The difficulty and expense involved in making amendments at proof stage makes it essential for authors to prepare their manuscript carefully: any alterations to the original text are strongly discouraged.
