Who is This Event For?

The purpose of the IBR-PDW is to provide junior scholars with developmental feedback on their current research projects in international business studies. While we hope that many of these papers will be eventually submitted to IBR, the purpose of the PDW is broader: to improve the quality of IB research and bring new scholars into the IB field. We particularly welcome original papers from early career researchers or junior faculty members who have not previously published or do not normally publish in International Business Review.

How is This Event Structured?

The 2020 IBR-PDW will be held between 2pm and 6pm on Thursday 2 July at the Florida International University downtown campus as part of the pre-conference activities taking place before the formal start of the AIB 2020 conference.

The IBR-PDW will begin with an introduction by Roger Strange, IBR Associate Editor. The participants will then be divided into two sub-panels, and detailed feedback on each paper will be provided by two of the following IBR Associate Editors: Agnieszka Chidlow (University of Birmingham, UK), Fang Lee Cooke (Monash University, Australia), Mario Kafouros (University of Leeds, UK), Stewart Miller (University of Texas at San Antonio) and Roger Strange (University of Sussex, UK). The panelists will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each paper, with the aim of providing robust yet constructive feedback to the authors so that they can improve their papers to the standard required for IBR publication.

How Can I Submit a Paper?

Prospective participants in the 2020 IBR-PDW are invited to submit their paper manuscripts via the AIB submission system by March 2, 2020. Please note that each participant may make only one submission for the IBR-PDW. All authors should indicate their names, e-mails, and affiliations, on the cover page of the manuscript. Papers must be less than 10,000 words in length, and should follow the IBR Guide for Authors.

What Should I Do if My Paper is Accepted?

Participation at the IBR-PDW is limited to 10 papers. Accepted participants will be required to confirm their participation by 31 March, and they will then be invited to submit a revised manuscript (i.e. the version to be discussed at the IBR-PDW) by 1 June.

Please note: Participants must be registered for the AIB 2020 meeting before they confirm their attendance at the IBR-PDW
