3REQUIREMENTS FOR ‘BIG PICTURE’ PAPERS
These papers are designed to be reflective pieces allowing researchers engaged in wine business the chance to develop more complex ideas or discussions based on a range of research projects, rather than being the precise, empirical results of a single research process. They must be scholarly and rooted in research experience but can explore new possibilities, offer suggestions for new areas of research, or produce suggestions about consumer behaviour or enterprise activity that warrant peer-consideration. Around four-six such papers could be selected for presentation, but a longer time would be allowed for speakers and contributions from the floor. The aim is that this process will stimulate wider discussion about current and future issues in wine business (and particularly theoretical and conceptual perspectives) which often get less attention when the focus is only on empirical papers. These papers should not exceed 10 pages including title page and references. Papers will be selected following a review process which will include a number of members from the conference’s Academic Advisory Board.
The following sections should be included, but could be merged if appropriate:
- Title of the paper
- Abstract (250 words)
- Keywords (maximum 5)
- Introduction, and the problem or issue under consideration
- Research basis (e.g. literature review, research stream, ethnographic engagement).
- Discussion, including relevant literature review problem studied.
- Implications and recommendations
- Conclusions, including propositions for future research.
