In 2021, there will again be an opportunity to submit two different types of paper:

  • ARCOM indexed paper: Your ARCOM indexed paper will be included in the digital conference proceedings. This ARCOM indexed paper will also indexed in the ARCOM CM Abstracts database and Scopus, which could affect your H-index. If you are thinking of submitting this paper to a peer-reviewed journal in future, you would very likely be expected to develop and modify the paper significantly.
  • ARCOM working paper: Your ARCOM working paper will be included in the ARCOM CM Abstracts database. Your ARCOM working paper will not be included in the Scopus index, and so will not affect your H-index. As this is an unpublished working paper, you are also able to submit this to a peer-reviewed journal for consideration in future but we would encourage you to acknowledge that this was first presented in the ARCOM conference.
