Call for Participants

Strategy Practice Interest Group
Paper Development Workshop

Saturday, October 6, 2012 10:00 - 16:00

The Strategy Practice IG is offering a pre-conference Paper Development Workshop at the 2012 Strategic Management Society meeting in Prague. We warmly welcome both junior and senior scholars to participate. This workshop is open to members of any Interest Group, however, preference will be given to members of the Strategy Practice IG. Individuals do not have to be registered to attend the 2012 SMS Annual Conference, however, non-conference attendees will only be considered for acceptance if there is space remaining after conference attendees are accepted.

The purpose of this workshop is to share experiences on how to publish research internationally. The workshop is divided into three interactive sessions where participants will get the opportunity to give and receive feedback about manuscripts and papers.

This workshop will be co-chaired by Martin Friesl (Lancaster University), Hanna Lehtimäki (University of Eastern Finland) and Basak Yakis-Douglas (Oxford University).

In order to participate, please upload the paper you wish to discuss in the workshop by August 1st. Information regarding uploading a proposal can be found on this website. Please include an additional page to your proposal that contains a statement committing to attend the workshop, permission to distribute submitted works to session participants, and a commitment to prepare a one-page feedback about the papers of your group. Also, please let us know if you have an R&R paper that you could discuss in the workshop.

To prepare for these sessions, papers will be grouped in terms of similar themes and everyone in the group will be asked to write one-page of feedback on the other group members' papers. In the first session, participants will be grouped in pairs to give each other feedback about the paper. In the second session, selected Strategy-as-Practice papers that are in the revise and resubmit stage will be discussed. At the end of the day, common issues and solutions related to paper writing will be drawn together. In this session reviewers and editors of Class A journals will join us for Q&A.
