General Conference Submission Instructions

Submissions can be made in English or Spanish, but please note that SASE’s principal working language is English. Paper submissions in Spanish will be processed by the Spanish-language Network M unless otherwise specified by network or mini-conference organizers.

Paper submissions and session proposals must be made through our online submission system. For technical reasons, you must log in to the SASE website to access the submission system. If you have had a username and password for www.sase.com any time in the past three years, it should still be valid on our site. If you cannot remember it, click the "forgot password" link next to the login box.

Paper and Session Proposals

It is possible to submit in two different categories: Individual Papers and Sessions.

To submit an individual paper, you must include an abstract. Abstracts for submissions to regular networks should be no longer than 500 words; abstracts for submissions to mini-conferences should be no longer than 1000 words.  All submissions need to include 3 key words.

To submit a session, you must include both an overall abstract for the session and abstracts for each of the 3-4 papers composing the session. The same word length applies to papers within sessions as does to individual paper submissions.

SASE network organizers welcome both full sessions and individual papers – please keep in mind that some networks require full paper uploads by June 1st in addition to the initial abstract submission.

All mini-conferences require the submission of a full paper by June 1, 2016.

Descriptions of networks and mini-conferences, as well as contact information for their organizers, are available on the SASE website.

Attention

No author may be associated with more than two papers, regardless of whether the papers have co-authors.

No paper may be submitted twice to different networks or miniconferences.

The deadline for submitting proposals is January 26, 2016.

Acceptance notifications will be sent by February 23, 2016.

Network Q / EHESS Fondation France-Japon Best Paper Award

SASE is delighted to announce that its Research Network Q: Asian Capitalisms, through generous support from the Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS and Banque de France, has created SASE Network Q / EHESS Fondation France-Japon Award.

A prize of €1,000 will be awarded to the best full paper submitted to Network Q for the SASE Annual Conference. The paper will be judged both for overall excellence and for its pertinence to the theme of Asian capitalisms in particular. Among papers of equal excellence, preference will be given to scholars working in Asia.

Submissions should have a well-defined argument, a robust empirical foundation, and a connection to existing scholarly literature on their topic. We also welcome submissions addressing weaknesses in dominant conceptions of diversity of capitalism and institutional chance, and examining alternative conceptions.

In 2016, the Network Q prize committee is composed of Tobias ten Brink (Goethe Universität), Gary Herrigel (Chicago University), and Sebastien Lechevalier (EHESS)

  • Each page includes its own instructions. You will find the instructions available in a link on the left hand control panel under the “Help” section.
  • Your actions are saved after each step of the submission process. If you make changes on a step, the changes will be saved to the database when you click the “Save and Continue” button.
