Academy of Management Learning & Education (AMLE): Paper Development & Reviewing Workshop




The purpose of this event is to improve papers that authors intend to submit for review at AMLE. We encourage submissions from faculty members, post-doctoral researchers and doctoral students who want to develop their papers for publication in the journal. 

Working manuscripts in the form of extended abstracts (between 5 and 10 pages of text) can be submitted (through the link below) on all management learning and management education topics, using all types of theory, at all levels of analysis, and using all empirical methods. The main focus of the workshop will be on paper development. The intent is for authors to receive actionable feedback that can then be incorporated into their papers.

Submissions approved for inclusion in the workshop will have the potential to make important and novel contributions to management learning and education scholarship. Papers can be theoretical or empirical in their focus, or they can be aimed at the essays section of the AMLE journal. 

Abstracts should include a synopsis of the research question, its relevance and significance, a statement relating to the limited ability of extant concepts and/or theory to provide a coherent response to that question, the empirical approach, and the implications of the findings for down-the-road theorizing. For essays, the abstract should focus on the specific idea or theme being developed, the theory that informs the argument, and the key components of the author’s call for action. Please make sure that the abstract is appropriate for AMLE by reading AMLE's Information for Contributors.


8th April, 2019 (10.00am – 4.00pm).
