The extended abstract should be written using Times New Roman, font size 12, 1,5 line spacing. It should contain around 1000-1500 words (around 3 pages). References are not included in this word count.

ISCC extended abstracts must be readable, jargon-free and understood by readers with varied backgrounds. Short, simple sentences and paragraphs, clear logical flow improve readability. Minimize the passive voice, and avoid first-person narrative (e.g., we/I); refer to the study as “the paper”/ “the current study” etc..

It should emphasize the topic of the paper, the documented context of the studied issue, the relevance and originality of the research, the research questions, the analyzed cases.

Text notes (not footnotes) should be used (family name of the author/s, year of publication, page – if it is the case). An example: (Anderson, 2005, 45). Publications with four or more authors should be cited by the first author’s name, followed by “et al.” [e.g., (Smith et al., 1985)

Text references should be given every time an idea belonging to another author is used (either it is quoted or it is rephrased).
