Instructions for Abstract Submission and Notification to authors

Clarifications

The research that is sought is to inform policy that is evidence based, policy that is gender sensitive.

The two volumes of Proceedings from the Fourth Conference constitute a substantial contribution to the body of literature on gender issues; all researchers considering submitting a paper should familiarize themselves with the research presented there which is relevant to their specific work and questions.  Expanding on, or challenging, that research base is a key goal of the 5th Conference.

Schedule

Monday November 19, 2012, COB: Deadline  for the submission of the abstracts. Word Limit: 300 words.  Submitters should include a clear statement of purpose and expected research, as well as information about data sources and methodologies, current status of the work, and up to five bibliographic references. The completed abstract submission form should be post on the http://wiit-paris2014.sciencesconf.org/

Monday February 18, 2013, COB: The authors are notified of the abstract review results (either abstract accepted for full paper, or not accepted) for those who submitted by November 19, 2012.

Monday July 1, 2013, COB: Deadline  for the submission of the draft papers. Word Limit: 8000 words.  This advanced draft should include the statement of hypothesis and the background and bibliography. The panel understands that some data may not be collected and analysis may still need to be conducted, so a description of the methodology and the type of data being sought would suffice. This step is not compulsory for conference participation, but is strongly recommended for abstracts with substantial comments.
