Dear all:
The Global Strategy Interest Group is organizing a Paper development
workshop at the SMS meetings in Atlanta.  Details about the workshop can be
found below, and also at:

Global Strategy Paper Development Workshop
The fifth SMS Global Strategy Paper Development Workshop (PDW), organized by
the Global Strategy Interest Group, will be held in Atlanta, Georgia from
9:00am to 3:00pm on September 28, 2013, as part of the pre-conference
program for the Strategic Management Society (SMS) annual meetings. The PDW
is organized by the Global Strategy Interest Group but is open to all
members of the society.

The purpose of this PDW is to provide Global Strategy scholars with
developmental feedback on their current research projects in global strategy
studies. The PDW is open to all scholars but preference will be given to PhD
students and early career academics. While we hope that many of these papers
will be eventually submitted to the Global Strategy Journal, Strategic
Management Journal, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, and other
International Business Journals, the purpose of the PDW is broader: to
improve the quality of global strategy research and bring new scholars into
the field.

We invite original papers from scholars who have not previously published in
any of the SMSą flagship journals. The PDW will provide feedback to authors
with research papers, and to researchers who are designing empirical
studies, on global strategy topics. Furthermore, it will provide
participants with the opportunity to meet journal editors, and also senior
faculty members in the field.
Submission Guidelines:

Please upload one document that includes the following items:
1. A current CV 
2. A cover letter that (a) indicates how the submitted paper might be
refined or developed; and then (b) briefly describes how the submitted paper
fits into a broader research agenda
3. Title & Abstract of the paper
4. Your research paper or paper idea

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. Full research papers must
be less than 10,000 words in length, and paper ideas must be no more than
3,000 words in length and include a theoretical framework, propositions, and
proposed research design.
