Requirements for Research-in-progress Papers (RiP)

Research-in-progress papers typically describe work that is as yet incomplete, but promising. Accepted RiP papers will appear in the ECIS2019 Proceedings. Authors of accepted RiP papers will be required to bring poster-size presentations for display at their poster session. Additional information on poster preparation and presentation will be forthcoming.

Review Criteria for Research-in-progress Papers

  • Topic is relevant to a track’s theme.
  • Objectives are clear and well-described.
  • Paper is written clearly.
  • Paper will draw an audience.
  • Paper is well organized and flows logically.
  • Literature review is appropriate.
  • Methodology is appropriate (only if relevant).
  • Analyses are appropriate (only if relevant—many short papers may not yet have data to analyze).
  • Evidence supports authors’ arguments (if relevant).
  • Paper makes a useful contribution or has the potential to make such contribution.

Research-in-progress paper (RiP) Page Limit Requirements

RiP papers must not exceed Seven (7) single-spaced pages and must conform to the ECIS2019 submission templates ( ECIS2019 Research-in-Progress paper template (58 Kb) & ECIS2019_Latex template (6 Kb) ). These page limits include all text, figures, tables, and appendices. The cover page, abstract, keywords, and references are excluded from this page count.
