AbstraktPeople submit articles to conferences for many reasons. Yet, the research question raised in
this article addresses the role of small, local conferences in creating an environment as the
first publication step toward publication in international journals and conferences. Within this
umbrella four propositions are forwarded, specifying aspects of: (1) the formal educational
background of individual academicians, (2) the hiring policies of academic institutions, (3)
citation pattern differences between authors with a Ph.D. and other formal academic
background, and (4) citation pattern differences between articles solely published at the local
conference and articles being re-published in an international outlet. Publications at NCIS
served as the data base. The analyses yielded strong support to the four propositions.
