The gamification publication track is a one of a kind way to develop your research paper presenting it at the GamiFIN conference, the HICSS gamification minitrack and eventually publishing it in an prestigious journal special issue (see the yearly special issues below). The aim of the gamification publication track is to increase the predictability and rigorousness of the peer-review and publication process by providing a coherent review continuum and discussion with peers.

The GamiFIN conference is the first step in the process of developing your paper: here you can submit the first, work-in-progress version of your paper. This paper can then be developed further and submitted to the gamification minitrack at HICSS conference, which is an excellent second step in the track and provides further feedback for your work. Ideally after these conferences you will be able to extend your paper into a full journal article. Both conferences offer access to special issues of specific journals, which can be used as “shortcuts to publication” on the track.

Papers accepted to the GamiFIN conference  are published in the CEUR proceedings series. Papers accepted to the HICSS are currently published under University of Hawai’i at Manoa repository. Both of these proceeding series are open access and permit further publication in a journal special issue.

Between each step, the paper should be extended by 30%-50%, they should not use the same title nor abstract in verbatim compared the publication in the previous step.
