Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to submit a proposal?2021-02-15T15:30:06+01:00

Proposals are sent using an online form that will request the following information:

Proposal data:

-Select an event (e.g., GKA EDU 2021: 10th International Conference on Education & Learning
– Select a language
– Select a presentation type
– Title of the proposal (maximum 150 characters)
– Presentation summary (maximum 300 words)
– Video URL is required if you choose Video – Prerecorded Presentation
– Long summary of your presentation (minimum 500 words); It is required to be included in the Conference Proceedings
– Keywords

Authors data

– Author’s name and surname
– University / Organization
– Country
– Email

If the proposal has been co-authored, the author must indicate the details of each of them (name, university, country, and email).

Is there a limit of proposals that I can submit to the conference?2021-02-11T21:57:12+01:00

No. You can send as many proposals as you wish. However, in order to give a fair chance to the greatest number of people to present, within the limitations of the programming, only one presentation per author and registration will be allowed. This means that three registered authors may submit three presentations and three articles jointly (that is, as co-authors).

Can I make changes and/or add a co-author to my proposal?2021-02-15T15:40:38+01:00

Making changes to approved proposals is not permitted. While the proposal is under review or re-submission, you can make corrections.

How long might it take before I know if my proposal has been accepted?2021-02-11T21:57:50+01:00

The scientific committee will review your proposal within 2-3 weeks and send you an email notification. This notification may arrive in your spam folder (spam). If that occurs, please look in spam and mark the message as the desired email to ensure the correct reception of subsequent notifications.

Where can I check to see whether my proposal has been accepted?2021-02-11T22:01:06+01:00

Visit the ‘Programme’ section on the conference website to see the list of proposals accepted to date.

Will the papers presented, be included in a publication?2021-10-19T12:32:42+02:00

Yes. At the end of the conference, the digital Book of Proceedings (with ISBN) is published with the long summaries (abstract) of the papers presented.

Authors may also submit the final paper for FREE publication in a Global Knowledge Academics indexed journal.

Can I choose the day/time of my session before a conference?2021-02-15T17:28:20+01:00

Yes, we try to satisfy all requests. When paying for your registration, in the “Client Notes” area, you can propose the day that suits you best to deliver your presentation. However, we only offer this option to registrations made up to 1 month before a conference.

When will the Conference programme be available?2021-02-15T17:29:17+01:00

The first draft of the programme will be available approximately 1 month before the start of the conference. If your proposal has been accepted, and you have registered and paid for it, your presentation will be scheduled in that draft. We accept proposals and registrations up until the application closing date.

Will I receive an attendance certificate?2021-02-15T15:26:49+01:00

Yes. Registration includes the issuance of 1 presentation and/or attendance certificate in the name of the person who registered the proposal and paid for the registration. See more about certificates in our Quick Guide.

Will my co-authors also receive a certificate?2021-02-15T15:26:32+01:00

Registration includes the issuance of only 1 certificate for presentation & attendance in the name of the person who registered the proposal and paid the registration fee.

If the author of the proposal indicates the existence of co-authors at the time of submission, they will be recognized as such at the bottom of the certificate.

I am co-author of a proposal submitted by another participant in the conference. Can I get a certificate in my name?2021-02-15T17:58:25+01:00

Should I send the article in a specific format?2021-02-15T17:52:40+01:00

We recommend using the template that we make available to authors. Also, consult our section on Guidelines for submitting articles.

How long can it take until my article is published in the journal?2019-12-26T13:01:03+01:00

The length of time varies. Once the article is received, and after verifying that the formal submission rules are met, the article is sent to two appropriate (peer) evaluators for review. This can take several weeks. Once the evaluators’ reports have been received, they are made available to you (after concealing the evaluators’ identities) and you are asked to send the final version of your article within the following fortnight for final publication. Articles are published continuously, so your final article will be published once the publication process is complete.

In the layout phase, what kind of changes are allowed?2019-12-26T13:01:41+01:00

Only minor changes can be made in the layout phase. All substantial changes in content should be made in the previous phase, so only orthographic errors (italics, capital letters, headings, etc.) should be focused on in this phase. In addition, if fields appear marked in yellow in the test that we send you, you must send us the necessary information in order to continue with the process.

Where can I see my article once it has been published in the journal?2019-12-26T13:02:19+01:00

Your article will be published on the journal’s website, in the ‘Current’ section. Visit the ‘Journals’ section to access the web pages for each academic journal.

Will I receive a copy of the full issue of the journal my article is published in?2019-12-26T13:03:28+01:00

No. You will only receive a (separate) electronic copy of your article.

Is there a possibility that my article may be open from the beginning?2019-12-30T22:02:18+01:00

Yes, you can assign a Creative Commons open license for your article. This will allow you to upload your article wherever you want (personal website, institutional repository, etc.) and – for a fee of €85 – it will also be open on our platform.

How can I access closed content?2019-12-26T13:05:40+01:00

We follow the deferred open access publication policy. That is, the content of articles will not be open until two years after they were published. In the meantime, you can access the content of our journals by various means: journal subscriptions, by purchasing a full issue, or by purchasing an article.

How can I hire a subscription?2019-12-30T22:01:41+01:00

Two types of subscriptions exist, depending on whether the contractor is an individual or an institution. A subscription lasts one year, but it can be renewed.

To sign up for an individual subscription, you must first be registered with the journal. Once registered, you should go to your main user page, where you can simply click on the ‘Manage my subscriptions’ link.

However, if you want to sign up for a subscription on behalf of an institution, log into the platform is not necessary. The user’s domain or IP address will be used to give access to the subscription content.

Can I disseminate my published article on social networks and/or institutional repositories I choose?2019-12-30T22:03:39+01:00

I have problems accessing your platform. What should I do?2021-02-15T15:12:00+01:00

We currently have 2 different platforms:

Platform for registration and access to the virtual conference: https://virtual.gkacademics.com/

Having two platforms will require you to register twice. It is recommended that you use the same email for both. We are currently working on being able to unify both platforms as soon as possible.

You can request a new password at Forgot your password? An email will be generated automatically to make the change. This notification may reach your spam (junk) folder.

If you have problems accessing either of the platforms, you can contact us on our customer service form.
