Call for Papers: PRME UKI Business and Society Research Development Workshop Series
October 13th 2023 – Bayes Business School (formerly Cass), City University of London
Are you looking to publish business and society research in top journals and have impact in the world? Do you have work in progress that would benefit from expert feedback from senior scholars?
PRME UK and Ireland, in conjunction with partner institutions (City University London, University of Bath, University College Dublin, University of Glasgow, and University of Nottingham) is holding a series of five paper development workshops between 2021-2025 to help early and mid-career scholars develop their business and society work for publication and impact. This third workshop will be hosted by the Centre for Responsible Enterprise (ETHOS) at Bayes Business School on October 13th, 2023.
Participants to the workshop will benefit from guidance from experienced scholars and journal editors/associate editors, and get insight on what it takes to publish papers with a business and society focus in leading peer reviewed journals. They will also receive intensive feedback on their work in progress from mentors during the workshop and will have time to meet and discuss informally with journal editors and mentors. Participants include Bobby Banerjee, Itziar Castello, Andreas Chatzidakis, Andrew Crane, Donal Crilly, Giana Eckhardt, Michael Etter, Sarah Glozer, Jean-Pascal Gond, Lauren McCarthy, Jeremy Moon, Judy Muthuri, Lucrezia Nava and Laura Spence (TBC).
The workshop will include the following:
· Editors panel discussing how to publish business and society scholarship, featuring editors and associate editors from the following journals: Business & Society, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Consumer Research, Marketing Theory and Strategic Management Journal.
· Paper feedback in small groups, with senior scholar mentors in each group.
To apply to the workshop, you need to submit a work in progress paper that you are targeting for journal submission. Please indicate in your submission your target journal or journals. We welcome the submission of both empirical papers (quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods) and purely theoretical work.
Accepted papers MUST be in the broad field of business and society. Priority will be given to papers that:
· are high quality works in progress;
· have potential for publication in top tier journals;
· are focused on topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs);
· have at least one author from a UK or Ireland institution.
The workshop is free for all participants. Your institution does not need to be a member of PRME UK & Ireland to participate (although it would be appreciated!).
Deadline for submission: 5pm GMT, 1st September 2023. Please submit your work in progress (4000-8000 words including references, double line-spaced) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Future workshops will be held in the following years:
