Asia Pacific Journal of Management Paper Development Workshop



Asia Pacific Journal of Management (APJM) will hold a Paper Development Workshop (PDW) at the 73rd Academy of Management Annual Meeting at Orlando, U.S.A. (9-13 August, 2013). This PDW is held as a pre-conference PDW of the Asia Academy of Management (AAM) at the AOM on 10 August, 2013. The PDW will be organized jointly by APJM and AAM.


APJM publishes original manuscripts on management and organizational research in the Asia Pacific region, encompassing Pacific Rim countries and mainland Asia.  APJM focuses on the extent to which each manuscript addresses matters that pertain to the most fundamental question: "What determines firm success?"  We seek to publish empirical or conceptual research which improves a broad understanding of this issue. APJM endeavors to be the major vehicle for exchange of ideas and research among management scholars within or interested in the broadly defined Asia Pacific region.


Date: 10 August, 2013


Time:  11:45a.m. - 2:15p.m.




The objective of this workshop is to offer detailed guidance to potential authors, with manuscripts that are of maturity for submission on hand, to finalize their papers for submission to APJM. The guidance will help authors with interesting research ideas to further polish their manuscripts into publishable quality, thereby enhancing the quality and diversity of Asian management research.


Content and Format of the Program:


The PDW will consist of two parts: The first part will be in a panel discussion format by the APJM editorial team covering various topics related to publishing, including publishing strategies, selection of research topics, methodological issues, etc.  The second part will be in the format of round table discussion. Participants and editorial mentors will be split into smaller groups to discuss manuscripts submitted by the participants in advance. In order to give detailed and balanced guidance to the authors, each manuscript will be reviewed by two editorial mentors. The organizer will select about 10-15 manuscripts for the workshop.


Intended Participants:
