Boston 2015 International Conference for Academic Disciplines
This 5-day conference organized by IJAS on the Harvard campus once again brings together researchers from various disciplines. Spanning over 3 adjacent states, it showcases multidisciplinary research and the splendors of New England in the Summer.
Organized by: International Journal of Arts and Sciences
Boston is the historic bastion of American democracy and has not ceased to surprise since its first impromptu tea party. This is also a region rich in academic advancement. On a per capita basis, no other capital city in the United States has as many university graduates residing within it. Boston is a celebration for the open mind. Our hope is that this experience will spark an interest in our delegates to join us in exchanging research and promoting this region as an excellent venue for international education. IJAS is committed to tear down the silos of academia and integrate education within the larger sphere that encapsulates us all.*Please note that although this conference will be held at Harvard University campus, in no way should the availability of Harvard's premises be construed as if this was a conference organized by Harvard. As an academic organization, the International Journal of Arts and Sciences hosts research and study abroad events on several campuses in North America and Europe. Only IJAS is responsible and accountable for its own conferences and cultural programs.
Conference Objectives and Call for Research
The first aim is to provide opportunities for academics from a range of disciplines and countries to share their research both through the conference podium and IJAS' double-blind refereed publications. All IJAS conferences are inter- and multi-disciplinary.
The third aim of the Conference Series is to introduce academics to educational premises in locations that are suitable for study abroad programs and which may meet their students’ educational needs. IJAS draws its inspiration from the Fulbright Program, an integral part of the United States' foreign educational relations, where face-to-face exchanges have proven to be the single most effective means of engaging international publics while broadening dialogue between academics and institutions.

Full length manuscripts may be published in the International Journal of Arts and Sciences(ISSN 1944-6934) or any of the refereed journals electronically available through our publishing consortium. The review process for the journals is slower and more demanding in its standards. Although both the proceedings and journals are refereed, research that meets the refereed standards for the conference and the proceedings may not meet the refereed standards for the journals. The selection of a journal, if any, for a particular manuscript is entirely at the discretion of the editorial board members following the reviewers' suggestions.
All the journals and proceedings are in electronic format since this makes it easier to disseminate the articles (click here for a sample article) to international scholars.
Authors who prefer a hard copy may download an entire issue on their own computer and publish and order a hard copy of it fromLulu.com or any other online publishing service for their own personal use.
IJAS's articles are indexed/accessed in (i) WorldCat, (ii) Ulrich's serials directory, (iii) Cabell's directories ofEducational Curriculum & Methods and Educational Psychology and Administration, (iv) Proquest, (v) Pol-On, the Polish scholarly bibliography operated by the University of Warsaw, (vi) Genamics, (vii) theExcellence in Research for Australia (ERA 2012) list compiled by the Australian Research Council, and (viii) Google Scholar - click here.
