The Woodbury School of Business at Utah Valley University is pleased to host a conference on Religious Faith and Social and Applied Sciences, Oct. 10-12, 2013.
The conference will bring together scholars and researchers who have done work on the impact of religious faith on all areas of social and applied sciences, including economic behavior, health, education, welfare, criminal justice, business policy, environmental behavior, foreign policy, regulation and decision making (including collective decision making), and global policy. The conference also welcomes papers on the impact of any of these fields on religious faith.
Researchers are invited to submit a 300-word abstract by July 15, 2013. The abstract should include the title of your paper, your full name, current position, institutional affiliation, email address and at least three keywords that best describe the subject of your submission.
All abstracts submitted to the conference will be blind reviewed. Papers accepted to the conference will be considered for publication in a special issue of The Journal of Business Inquiry, subject to the reviewers' report, editorial comments and conference feedback. The journal is JEL classified and is an open access, double-blind peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for scholarly research in economics and finance that is clearly applicable to business and related public policy issues. The journal is published by the Woodbury School of Business at UVU.
