Benefits from Participating
Constructive Feedback and Networking:
Authors of each paper presented would receive written comments from assigned discussants. These comments are motivated by a desire to support, encourage and improve the papers presented. The paper presentation environment is kept cordial where constructive criticism is encouraged. Coffee is served during all session breaks, facilitating continuation of discussion from the meeting rooms to the hallways. Networking can continue during organized breakfast and lunch times as well. All papers presented at the IAB conferences are eligible for publication in the International Academy of Business Review.
The IAB provides publication opportunities to academics & researchers though four journals:
International Journal of Economics & Business(ISSN: 1948-5166)
American Journal of Information Technology(ISSN: 1943-7498)
Journal of Innovative Education Strategies(ISSN: 1555-5429)
International Academy of Business Review(ISSN: 2332-8398)
The IAB recognizes the importance of teaching and holds teaching workshops at its conferences, headed by experienced teachers. These workshops focus on tools and techniques that seem to work for most student populations. Teaching workshops provide faculty development and networking opportunities for academics who may otherwise not be presenting a research paper at the conference.
The IAB recognized the importance given to collaborative research and to collaborative responses to grant proposals. The organization plans to have sessions at each conference exploring the development of joint proposals in response to various RFPs, and to current public policy issues or other topical research ideas.
Participation certificates are provided to everyone attending the teaching workshops. Documentation on the number of hours of participation for participants seeking continuing professional education (CPE) is provided on request.
