Who is This Event For?

The purpose of the PDW is to provide junior scholars with developmental feedback on their current research papers in IB studies. While we hope that many of these papers will eventually be submitted to JIBS, the purpose of the PDW is broader: to improve the quality of IB research and to bring new scholars successfully into the IB field. We invite original papers from junior scholars who have not previously published in JIBS. In particular, we hope to attract papers from scholars who are located in universities in emerging and developing economies.

How is This Event Structured?

The PDW will be structured to provide extensive feedback to authors whose research papers have been accepted by the workshop organizers. Because the Annual Meeting will take place  online, the program will focus on the key component of decentralized virtual roundtables.

During a 90-minute session on or prior to June 26th, groups of two authors (with substantively related papers) will be paired with groups of two JIBS Editors/ERB Members, whereby each individual paper will receive attention from each paired Editor/ERB Member. The emphasis will be on how to improve the papers discussed, so as to increase the probability of acceptance by a journal in the ecosystem of IB journals.

In addition, we will circulate to the PDW participants a set of recorded presentations by JIBS editors on pertinent topics such as publication ethics and data practices.

How Can I Submit a Paper?

Papers should be submitted through the JIBS Workshop Submission System. Please note that each applicant should submit only one paper. The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2021, in the authors’ time zone.

Submitted papers must be less than 10,000 words in length, and follow the JIBS Style Guide.

What Should I Do if My Paper is Accepted?

Submitting authors will be notified of the results of the review process by April 8, 2021, and will need to confirm their participation in the PDW by April 15, 2021.

Please note that authors will need to register for the AIB conference in order to participate in the JIBS PDW.
