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. The program will have three components. First, a 90-minute introductory session led by members of the JIBS editorial team will discuss the manuscript review process and various topics relevant to authors seeking to publish in JIBS or other outlets in the ecosystem of IB journals. Second, during a 90-minute main session, 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 for two times thirty minutes. The main focus 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. Third, several Editors/ERB Members will provide insights into their personal publication strategies and pathways for sustained, successful scholarship.
