Ninth Annual JIBS Paper Development Workshop

Academy of International Business Annual Meetings, Washington DC, USA

Saturday, June 30, 2012


The Ninth Annual Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) Paper
Development Workshop (PDW) will be held in Washington, DC from 9:00 am to
3:00 pm on Saturday, June 30, 2012, as part of the pre-conference program
for the Academy of International Business (AIB) annual meetings. The PDW is
the most extensive of the various JIBS outreach activities conducted by the
JIBS editorial team. Organized by Petra Christmann (Rutgers University), the
PDW involves most of the JIBS editors and many board members, and is
sponsored by the AIB, South Carolina CIBER and Rutgers Business School. 

The purpose of the 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 JIBS, the purpose of the PDW is broader: to improve the quality
of IB research and bring new scholars into the IB field. We invite original
papers from junior faculty members who have not previously published in
JIBS. In particular, we hope to attract papers from scholars (1) who are
located in universities in emerging economies or in universities that offer
limited support for international business research, or (2) who are trained
in disciplines less commonly associated with the field (e.g. human
geography, political science, ethnography, or economic history) but
interested in conducting international business research. 

The PDW will be structured to provide feedback to authors with research
papers, and to researchers who are designing empirical studies, on
international business topics. Last year, participants received feedback on
their work from about 25 JIBS editors and members of the Consulting Editors
Board (CEB) and Editorial Review Board (ERB). The program will start with an
introductory session led by the JIBS editorial team and JIBS authors. The
participants will then divide into two groups. Authors of research papers
will be paired with CEB and ERB guest editors for two-on-two discussions
where two guest editors will provide feedback to two authors on improving
their paper. At the same time, authors with research ideas will meet with
CEB and ERB guest editors in a small-group setting where two editors will
provide feedback to five authors on their research paper ideas. After a
lunch break, all participants will split into small-group sessions with JIBS
editors to discuss successful publication strategies. 

Participation at the PDW is limited. Participants will be invited based on
the quality of their submitted work. We are expecting two types of
submissions, full research papers and paper ideas. Papers and ideas should
be submitted through the JIBS Workshop Submission System located at
<> . The deadline for submissions is
February 1, 2012. Research papers must be less than 10,000 words in length,
and follow the JIBS Style Guide (
<> Paper ideas must be
no more than 3,000 words in length and include a theoretical framework,
propositions, and proposed research design. 

Participants will be notified about the acceptance of their submissions no
later than March 10, 2012 and will need to confirm their participation in
the PDW by March 31, 2012.
