Paper Submission
The Chinese language session accepts regular (complete) research manuscripts and research-in-progress manuscripts.
Regular (complete) research manuscripts should have completed analyses, documentation of results, and discussion of implications. Completed research manuscripts are usually close to journal submissions, but shorter. Authors of accepted papers in this category will present their study in one of the oral presentation sessions.
Research-in-progress manuscripts report research that is promising but incomplete. They are usually at the theorizing or analysis stage. Consequently, they generally include either no data analysis (for studies at the theorizing stage) or preliminary data analysis (for studies at the analysis stage). Authors of accepted papers in this category will need to prepare and bring poster-size presentations (in Large Type format) for discussion at an interactive session. Guidelines for poster presentation will be announced after the notification of paper acceptance.


The following guidelines are for initial submissions for review only. Guidelines for the final submission of camera-ready manuscripts and presentations will be announced after the notification of paper acceptance. Submissions that do not follow the guidelines will be rejected without review.
Language: Each manuscript should be written in Chinese, and the tile and abstract in English should also be provided.
Length: Completed research manuscripts must not exceed fourteen (14) single-spaced pages and research-in-progress manuscripts must not exceed eight (8) single-spaced pages. The page limit includes everything – the title, abstract, keywords, all text, figures, tables, references, and appendices.
Author Information: The manuscripts submitted for review MUST NOT contain any author information, as the review process is double blind. A manuscript that is not anonymous will be rejected without review. Please provide author information in the cover page and then submit it along with the manuscript.
Page Numbering: Please include page numbers in manuscripts submitted for review. Page numbers should be removed from the final, camera-ready version of accepted papers.
File Format: Manuscripts submitted for review should be in the Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx). Make sure that your manuscript is formatted as required by PACIS 2019, by downloading and using the Microsoft Word file which could be used as a template.
