Author Guidelines

For every submission it is necessary to ensure the following:

  1. The article is original and has not been published previously or been previously submitted to another journal or conference.
  2. The document is in Word format and meets the style and bibliographic requirements outlined in these standards.
  3. The work must address researches in the area of specialization of the conference.

All works are subject to an initial evaluation by the Main Editor and the Section Editors. After the approval, the reviewers are assigned, for which the Editorial Committee reserves the right to publish the articles that meet the publication criteria established in the Journal of Conference.

For an article to be published, two positive evaluations must be obtained, even when they present corrections. After the review (which should not exceed eight weeks as a rule) the author is informed of the corrections necessary for the approval of the article.

In the same way, the acceptance or rejection of the article will be communicated.

The works can be presented in Gaeilge and English.

As a rule, the works will not include more than three authors. The conference does not assume any responsibility about the order of the authors, nor as to which of them is consigned as a Primary Contact.

In case of more than three Authors, the Editor and the Section Editors may authorize the publication if it is justified by the methodology used, for reasons of collaboration between Institutions, or the interdisciplinary nature of the same.

The summary must have a maximum of 250 words.

Each collaboration must be accompanied by keywords, between three (3) and five (5) keywords.

The works will have a minimum of 15 pages and a maximum of 30 pages (letter size 8.5" x 11"), with a Times New Roman typography at 12 points, with 1.5 of line spacing.

The general structure of the articles should be as follows:

  • Summary
  • Introduction
  • Main Body
  • Conclusions
  • References

The Author must review what type of scientific production his contribution is. The titles of the sections will be subject to the will of the author.

The sections and sub-sections can be listed, placing the titles in bold and aligned to the left with the title type format.

The mathematical symbols and formulas must be done with the respective function in the text editor or support program.

The graphics, tables, and images must have their title and source, if necessary must be presented in additional files.

Articles of scientific and investigative nature must be written in the third person of the singular (impersonal), and have adequate punctuation and spelling, preserving the balance in the structure of the paragraphs.

The author who submits the work must carefully note that all references are adequately listed at the end of the article, that the spelling of the names is the correct and that the dates given in the text are the same as those in the references.

Avoid quotes from unreliable sources, especially in the case of those from the internet.

IAC’s conference uses APA style.

In particular cases, we can accept Vancouver style, only if accepted by the Editor.

Refrain from submitting articles in thesis format, the thesis results may be adapted and transformed into articles, but documents that do not comply with the form established for this conference will not be accepted.

This set of rules may vary over time. Therefore, changes made in it will be published on the date agreed to its implementation.

The articles that are selected for publication will not receive any monetary compensation.

IAC can send certificates of publication if requested by the authors.
