All authors have already signed the AIS Author Agreement. As a reminder, papers accepted to ICIS 2018 must be original; papers cannot have been published or accepted in a journal or conference proceedings, nor presented at another conference. Further, papers must not be currently under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere at the moment of submission of the revised (final) manuscript.
Because papers are published in the digital ICIS Proceedings, all submissions must use the revisions template. Please note these are NOT the template used for initial submission and we strongly recommend you start fresh with this one. Files submitted in other word processing formats or that do not use these templates will not be accepted for publication in the ICIS Proceedings.
Revisions Formatting Requirements
Authors enter the submission title, abstract, keywords, and author information in the menus prompted by the Precision Conference ICIS 2018 System. The body of the submission (text, figures, tables, and references) should be stored in one file in Microsoft Word .DOC format, Microsoft Word .DOCX format, or Adobe PDF format and must use the revision template provided on the ICIS 2018 website.
Any submission that deviates from the formatting requirements will be rejected without review.
For all types of papers, the maximum number of pages detailed below must include:
- Paper’s body
- Any figures and tables
References are counted towards the page limitations.
Completed Research Paper Page Limits
Completed research papers must not exceed seventeen (17) single-spaced pages and must conform to the ICIS 2018 revision template as per the instructions document. The 17 pages must include all of the following: the title, author names, abstract, keywords, all text, figures, tables, and appendices, and references.
Research-in-Progress Page Limits
Research-in-progress papers must not exceed nine (9) single-spaced pages and must conform to the ICIS 2018 revision template as per the instructions document. The 9 pages must include all of the following: the title, author names, abstract, keywords, all text, figures, tables, and appendices, and references.
Teaching Case Page Limits
The teaching case must not exceed sixteen (17) single-spaced pages and the teaching note must not exceed nine (9) single-spaced pages. Both the teaching case and teaching note must conform to the ICIS 2018 revision template as per the instructions document. The page limits must include all of the following: title, author names, abstract, keywords, all text, figures, tables, and appendices for the teaching case and teaching note, and references. Please note: Only the teaching case will be published, not the teaching note. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT THE TEACHING NOTE IN YOUR REVISION. However, please DO indicate in the teaching case which author instructors should contact to obtain the teaching note.
Panel Page Limits:
The panel statement must not exceed five (5) single-spaced pages. The page limits must include the title, author names, keywords, all text, figures, tables, and appendices, and references.
- Figures: All figures and illustrations must be inserted into your main document file as either JPG or GIF format (other formats or embedded graphic objects may not convert to PDF correctly). For more instructions regarding figures, please see the revision template.
- Track Changes Feature Must Be Off: Be certain to accept all changes and turn track changes “off” before uploading your paper to the ICIS 2018 Review System.
- Convert All Fields and Links to Plain Text. Be sure that all field codes and link codes, such as figure number cross-reference codes and citation management codes (e.g., EndNote), are converted to plain text in the document before uploading your paper to the ICIS 2018 Review System.
- Author identification: Authors should now include their names, institutions, sponsors, references to unpublished work, and acknowledgments in revisions.
- References formatted in Georgia Typeface! PLEASE do not forget to format the references using the built-in “style” named “References” – when using a reference manager such as EndNote it is quite common that references are formatted in Times New Roman, with far too much indentation of “hanging” text. See the two examples below to see the difference: the image on the left-hand side is an example of correct formatting; the image on the right-hand side is an example of incorrect reference formatting.

HOW TO SUBMIT REVISIONS
- Submission system: All submissions are to be made via the Precision Conference ICIS 2018 System.
- Submission process: To submit your revised manuscript, log into the Precision Conference ICIS 2018 System and select “submissions in progress,” where you will find your submissions and decisions. For all “accept with revisions” decisions, you will see a link to “submit the final version.” This action will take you through a process, similar to your original submission process. As part of this process, you will respond to the review team’s comments in a space provided on the screen; you can use this space to document any changes you made to the original manuscript. In order to expedite the processing of the revised manuscript, be as specific as possible in your responses to your review team. You will also see the author agreement information. It is required that you click the box indicating that you have read and agree to these items. All final versions must be in PDF format and the revised content and format will both be checked.
- Number and Order of Authors: During the submission of your revised manuscript, you will have a last chance to verify the spelling and the order of the author names that you earlier entered in the Precision Conference ICIS 2018 System. These names and affiliations will be used to create cover pages in the Proceedings. Please note that these are separate from the Word document you submit. So, please make sure you have double-checked the author information and other manuscript metadata BEFORE finally submitting your revision.
- Correct Metadata: The metadata you enter directly into the Precision Conference ICIS 2018 System will be used to create the paper and online versions of the conference program; therefore, any information you enter will be reproduced EXACTLY in those documents. In addition to ensuring the proper author order, please make sure that all names are spelled properly and that you do NOT use all capital letters or all lowercase letters for your names, university affiliations or your paper titles in the metadata fields. Also, please also do not abbreviate your institution’s name. This will help ensure that all of your data will show up properly in the Itinerary Planner and printed conference program.Please note that once a manuscript has been submitted to the online submission system it CANNOT be altered, amended, changed, corrected, edited, or revised. Once a revision has been made, it is final. One can, however, upload a manuscript and then wait to actually submit it through the submission site. Such manuscripts can be altered and re-uploaded until they are submitted. To be presented at ICIS 2018 manuscripts must be submitted by the deadline listed on this page.
- Author Notification Date: Authors will be notified as to whether their submission was accepted, conditionally accepted, or rejected by Monday, July 30, 2018.
- Authors Revisions Due Date: Authors must have their final submissions submitted in the proper format to Precision Conference ICIS 2018 System by Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at 11:59 p.m., PDT (UTC -7:00).
- All author names and affiliations must be included in the metadata during the revision process. If author information is missing, it will not appear within the program. Please make certain that the presenting author is identified.
- Author Notification of Accepted Revisions Date: Authors will be notified by Friday, September 28, 2018 regarding whether their revision was accepted or not.
- Due to time constraints, we will not be able to invite a second round of revisions, so it is vital that authors address all the required content changes identified by track chairs, AEs, and/or reviewers in their first revision, and that the authors comply fully with the formatting guidelines.
- Author Registration Due Date: At least one author of every accepted submission and all members of every accepted panel must register for the conference by the end of early-bird registration, Wednesday, October 10, 2018.
- Scholarly integrity: Scholarly integrity is a core value in our discipline. Scholars submitting papers to this conference thereby attest that they have read the AIS Code of Research Conduct and the work submitted is in accordance with the Code in all appropriate respects. Editors of AIS conference proceedings who receive allegations of plagiarism or other scholarly misconduct may inform the AIS President who may refer the matter, at their discretion, to the AIS Research Conduct Committee.
- Original material: The author(s) verify that this paper (or substantial portions of it) is not under review, accepted, or published elsewhere. They further verify that they have read and followed the ICIS 2018 Submission Guidelines.
- Presentation at the conference: At least one author of every accepted submission and all members of every accepted panel must present at ICIS 2018 in San Francisco. Authors should be prepared to present their papers or participate in panels at any time during the conference (Thursday, December 13 to Sunday, December 16, 2018). Failure to comply with this requirement will result in removal of papers or panelists from the ICIS 2018 Proceedings.
- Distribution: Submission of a paper to the conference represents the author’s agreement to allow AIS to publish the paper in any written or electronic format for distribution to all interested parties in perpetuity with or without compensation to AIS and without compensation to the author. The parties understand that the author is granting a non-exclusive license and all copyrights remain the property of the author.
- Copyright Note: For all papers accepted into ICIS 2018, authors of accepted papers will retain copyright. However, by submitting a paper, authors do agree that AIS can publish and reproduce any accepted papers in the ICIS 2018 Proceedings in the format of AIS’ choosing (CDs, e-Library and printed proceedings) under an established ISBN number for ICIS 2018.
