Do you have work in progress that would benefit from expert feedback from senior scholars? Are you looking to publish business and society research in top journals? PRME UK and Ireland, in conjunction with partner institutions (City University London, University of Bath, University College Dublin, University of Glasgow, University of Nottingham) is holding a series of five paper development workshops to help early and mid-career scholars develop their business and society work for publication. The first workshop is hosted by the University of Bath - School of Management in Spring 2021 with a date to be advised.
Participants to the workshop will benefit from hearing insight and guidance from senior scholars, and what it takes to publish papers with a Business and Society focus. They will also receive intensive feedback on their work in progress from mentors during the workshop. Confirmed mentors include Andrew Crane, Pauline Maclaran, Donna Marshall, Colm McLaughlin, Mark Pagell, Deirdre Shaw and Andrea Prothero who between them have published in Academy of Management Review, Employee Relations, Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Management Studies, Journal of Operations Management, Journal of Retailing, Organization Studies, Sloan Management Review, and more. Mentors also have experience as Editor/Associate Editor/Editorial Board members for leading journals which publish business and society related research – including Business & Society, Business Ethics Quarterly, International Journal of Production and Operations Management, Journal of Public Policy and Marketing, Journal of Macromarketing, Journal of Supply Chain Management, Marketing Theory, and more. Mentors also have significant supervision experience of PhDs and Post docs.
The first workshop will cover the following topics, a detailed program will follow:
Success factors to realize a contribution with a business and society focus in leading journals.
Paper feedback in groups of 3-4, with a senior scholar as a mentor in each group.
Lunch and other networking opportunities with mentors.
With this call for papers, we would like to encourage you to apply to the workshop by submitting your work in progress. We welcome the submission of both empirical papers (quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods) and purely theoretical work.
