  • Research Paper: This category covers papers which report on any type of research undertaken by the author(s). The research may involve the construction or testing of a model or framework, action research, testing of data, market research or surveys, empirical, scientific or clinical research.
  • Conceptual Paper: These papers will not be based on research but will develop hypotheses. The papers are likely to be discursive and will cover philosophical discussions and comparative studies of others' work and thinking.
  • Case Study: Case studies describe actual interventions or experiences within organizations. They may well be subjective and will not generally report on research. A description of a legal case or a hypothetical case study used as a teaching exercise would also fit into this category.
  • Literature Review: It is expected that all types of paper cite any relevant literature so this category should only be used if the main purpose of the paper is to annotate and/or critique the literature in a particular subject area. It may be a selective bibliography providing advice on information sources or it may be comprehensive in that the paper's aim is to cover the main contributors to the development of a topic and explore their different views.
  • General Review: This category covers those papers which provide an overview or historical examination of some concept, technique or phenomenon. The papers are likely to be more descriptive or instructional ("how to" papers) than discursive.
  • Experience Papers: Papers that describe completed or ongoing innovations in management or practice with proven or potential capability to advance the state of practice in the field, including critical success factors, challenges encountered and how they were addressed.
  • Poster Papers: papers that present new ideas and initiatives with potential to contribute for research or management

Navigating the Shifting Tides of Globalization

Globalisation in some ways made a smaller world, has reached a plateau and, in some areas, is in reverse. Despite a consensus in the worlds of policy, economics and business about the inevitability of globalisation, today serious questions are posed about future of globalisation. With shift in locus of power, a wave of new companies from the emerging world is profoundly altering competitive dynamics around the world. Rush of liquidity to emerging markets – a trend that is now reversing; Affected capital flows due to plummeted global trade; Economic shocks from Greece to China to Russia - creating uncertainty and possible disruption ahead; Steady rise in protectionist measures; Complexity and shifts in global migration push/pull factors; Competition for shrinking resources, Intensified political conflicts, etc., are making it difficult to predict single scenario for future of global economy. On the other hand, World’s major and emerging economies are facing long-term structural challenges - including rising debt loads, aging populations, inadequate or aging infrastructure and increased divergence, in the last few years reducing the prospects for further global integration and in some respect gone into reverse. In such unclear global trade climate, the path to renewed, stronger and inclusive growth remains elusive. Strategists and researchers must find ways to extract the signals from the noise to understand what’s over the horizon.
