The publication of the collective volume is scheduled for the end of 2022 in Dykinson publishing house.

There is a mandatory style template in Word format that must be used to edit the text. It is necessary to edit it with Microsoft Word, since the template contains internal metadata for the platform to identify the documents. We therefore recommend that you replace the example texts with your own, respecting and using the proposed styles. This will facilitate all subsequent layout work by the congress organizers and compliance with the publication deadlines.

The length of the chapters, including all the sections, will be a maximum of 20 pages. words. Bibliography, footnotes, tables and graphs will be included in this amount.

This text will include an abstract and keywords.

You can modify the title of the final text with respect to the title of the defended paper**.

The structure of the text should be articulated as follows:

  1. If it is a research paper, an experience or literature/systematic review, it should contain information on: introduction, objectives (with or without hypothesis), method, results and conclusion.
  2. If it is a theoretical review or reflection, the structure to follow will be: introduction, objectives, development of the topic and conclusions.


The mandatory citation system is APA 7th edition.
You can consult the rules of the APA 7th system at this link.
However, it is advisable to use a bibliographic reference manager to avoid citation errors, duplications, etc. Some examples of bibliographic reference managers: Zotero, Bibme, EasyBib, Mendeley, Endnote, Refworks, Bibcitation or Bibtex.
It is recommended to include the DOI in those articles or book chapters that have it.

The maximum file size that can be uploaded to the platform is 10 Mb. If your document has more weight check the resolution of the images (100 dpi for example is sufficient for a digital edition).

Book chapters will be reviewed by members of the scientific committee who may accept the chapter, propose major or minor changes or reject it***.

Once your chapter has been reviewed by blind peer review, you will have available in the “certificates” section of your work desk a certificate of participation in chapbook.

Important warnings:

Submission of proposals for publication as book chapters implies acceptance of and compliance with the rules of these and deadlines referenced above.

Ethical aspects. The UCAV, UEK and the conference Digitalization and Business, aims, as a whole, to ensure compliance with ethical standards in scientific research:

  1. They maintain an ethical commitment to the academic community and society, inspired by the international agreements taken from the Comité de Ética de Publicaciones (COPE). Authors should take into account the indications of this Committee.
  2. Paper proposals must be original (zero tolerance to plagiarism), scientific or professional in nature. They cannot be papers already published or presented previously or simultaneously in another congress. For this purpose, several specific anti-plagiarism tools will be used, setting reasonable margins and analyzing the cases that exceed these margins (20% max.). We consider as plagiarism: self-plagiarism, errors in the wording of attributions, the nature of the text, quotations, etc. If any of these cases are detected, the papers will be rejected and there will be no right to reimbursement of the amounts paid to the organization.

The Scientific Committee will reject and, therefore, will not be published (informing those affected):

* Failure to deliver the book chapter by the author/authors on the date indicated will result in their exclusion from the final work, with no right to a refund of the amounts paid to the organization. Also, the delivery of a file on time that is not the final version or does not correspond to the work, in order to gain time and make changes, will result in their exclusion from the final work, without the right to a refund of the amounts paid to the organization.

** Under no circumstances may the contents or the object of the research be modified. This situation will result in their exclusion from the final work, without the right to reimbursement of the amounts paid to the organization.

*** If the chapter, once modifications have been requested, does not meet the minimum quality standards, it will be definitively rejected for publication, resulting in its exclusion from the final work, without the right to reimbursement of the amounts paid to the organization.
