Call for Applications
The purpose of this pre-Colloquium Paper Development Workshop (PDW) is to exchange ideas and share experience on how to craft and publish strategy-as-practice research internationally. The workshop provides an interactive forum in which participants can present their work in progress, receive feedback from discussants as well as fellow participants, and discuss methodological challenges in SAP research.
In addition, SAP papers that are in the revise and resubmit stage will be discussed. At the end of the session, common issues and solutions related to paper writing will be drawn together. Furthermore, reviewers and editors of A journals will join us for Q&A. The workshop is also an opportunity to strengthen the international community of SAP scholars.
The format of this PDW will be highly interactive and will address current methodological challenges in SAP research. Sessions will be dedicated to discussions of full papers. Organizers, participants and invited guests will provide feedback on the papers accepted for presentation in the PDW. As a participant, we will ask you to provide written comments (not exceeding one page) on a paper that has been accepted for the PDW. Your discussant will reciprocate by providing feedback on your paper.
The workshop will take place on Wednesday, July 2, 2014, 09:00am–14:00pm.
