The Journal of World Business (JWB) will be hosting a paper development workshop (PDW) at the University of Essex, Essex Business School Southend Campus. The workshop will begin with a reception on the evening of April 10, followed by a full day workshop on April 11.
The workshop will be led by the Journal of World Business senior editorial team of Co- Editors-in-Chief Jonathan Doh and David Collings, Deputy Editor Ajai Gaur, and Senior Editor Ulf Andersson, along with other established scholars from JWB’s editorial team and BAM International Business/International Management Special Interest Group. The workshop will include presentations by senior scholars on publishing strategies and techniques, followed by in-depth feedback on selected papers.
The event will take place on April 10-11, 2018
Who Should Attend
The purpose of the PDW is to provide developmental feedback to scholars and doctoral students on research projects that are at relatively advanced stages of development, and encourage them to further develop quality research papers on issues that are of relevance to JWB. While we certainly hope that the authors will develop their work and submit the resulting papers to JWB, participation in the PDW does not create an obligation to do so.
Benefits of Attendance
- Enhance writing skills and develop an understanding of the publication process in the JWB
- Receive constructive feedback and further develop the quality of research papers submitted to JWB
- Raise your profile through networking and engagement with researchers at all career stages
- Showcase your research and further develop research ideas through discussion and feedback from experienced colleagues
- Connect with researchers and explore opportunities within the IB community and BAM IB/IM SIG.
