Crafting your writing for high ranking journals, workshop with Professor David Denyer






Professor Denyer will guide participants on the structuring of arguments and the interplay of a theoretical story and an empirical story in academic writing. This is a fundamental skill which is key to getting published in high ranking journals and, where it is not applied, is a main reason many people don’t get published. The workshop will examine an AOM paper winner and it will be explained why the author does this so well. For anyone who has real world data, particularly a single case study it is an wonderful example of how to make a theoretical contribution. Professor Denyer will provide a method of structuring a paper and will get everyone to apply it to the exemplar paper so participants will get a shared understanding of how the approach works. Then participants will apply it to their own papers. The outcome would be a storyline and architecture for delegate’s own papers, which will significantly enhance their chances of publication in a CABS 3-4 journal.



This event will take place on the 11th December 2019, between 11:00am and 5:00pm
