Event description

Description

Abstracts: You are invited to submit a 200-word abstract specifically on your literature review.

This is the first of three one-day development conferences specifically planned for DBA students. The conference is intended as a developmental forum for students to present their literature review chapters, receive feedback, and get some tips on how the literature can be applied later in their theses.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Gordon Ade-Ojo, University of Greenwich, London

Topic:Literature review beyond the second chapter’

Attendance & Presentation: Compulsory. Oral presenteation will be 15-20 minutes per student.

Publication: You are invited to submit between 3,000 – 4,000 words (excluding references) of your literature review that will be peer-reviewed and published in the conference special journal (proceedings). The proceedings will give you an opportunity to rewrite/turn your chapter two (literature review) to journal article. Your literature review should be succinct and should only include information that will help the readers to understand the gap in research that led to the planned study. In writing your paper, please ensure that you evaluate or critique cited works paying attention to some of the questions that readers of the Proceedings would be seeking answer to – such as: What are the contributions of this literature to the field? What are the overall strengths? What are the overall weaknesses? What might be missing? You will end your paper by identifying the GAP where your research fits in; then sum up and link the literature to your research.

Deadline to submit your abstracts (and papers if you intend to publish in the peer-review conference proceedings): Friday, July 28, 2017. There will be no extention.

If you have any questions, you may contact:

Conference chair: Professor James Ogunleye

Moderator: Dr. Rajendra Kumar
