The virtual XLI VAKKI Symposium was arranged in 2021 under the theme of Workplace Communication.

This time, the VAKKI Research Association invited all participants of the XLI VAKKI Symposium to submit a proposal for an article to be included in the upcoming volume of VAKKI Publications. Notifications of acceptance were sent to the authors by end of March 2021.

Deadline for submission of full-length manuscripts (based on the accepted abstracts) is May 3, 2021.

A double blind review procedure will follow. See our VAKKI Publications guidelines 2021 for more information.

VAKKI’s policy on archiving publications in parallel repositories

After the VAKKI Publications manuscript is published by VAKKI, authors are allowed to publish their manuscript in their own university’s institutional Open Access repository or in other sites, like ResearchGate, or LinkedIn. In this case, the repository version is allowed to be the final article that appears in the VAKKI Publications. The link to the original article on the publication platform of VAKKI should be given. The author may publish the article as part of her/his thesis, even if the thesis is an online version.
