Information for contributors

Written papers and presentations

Complete papers must not exceed 12 pages (including literature but excluding the title page) and can be written either in German or in English. Manuscripts are to be submitted by 19 March 2020 (extended deadline) as pdf files via www.conftool.org/gewisola2020. The number of accepted presentations of submitted papers is limited to one presentation per speaker. When papers are written by more than one author, the prospective speaker should be named. For papers submitted in English, it should be stated whether the presentation will be made in English or German. In the latter case, an additional German version of the English title of the paper has to be provided. Reviews are carried out anonymously by two reviewers using the following criteria: relevance of the topic, originality of the paper, appropriateness of the methodological approach and comprehensibility of the presentation. Positively evaluated papers will be presented at the annual conference in thematic working groups. Final papers will be published in the conference proceedings after due consideration of reviewers’ comments. With their submission, authors agree that their written contribution will be electronically distributed to the registered participants of the conference and made available to the public via AgEconSearch.
