This joint paper development workshop (PDW) of EGOS, OS, and OMT, seeks to provide developmental opportunities for late stage PhD students and early career scholars who are based in the Central and Eastern Europe and do research in the field of organizational and management studies. The PDW aims to help participants develop their academic writing. It also seeks to increase participants’ awareness of the requirements, expectations, and procedures involved in the review processes at peer-reviewed academic journals through presentations and firsthand discussion with the editors of OS, JEEMS, and JMS.
In particular, we aim to support participants to develop their papers into conference papers to be submitted to the EGOS Colloquium in Copenhagen, July 6-8, 2017 or to the OMT Division of the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Atlanta (Georgia), August 4-8, 2017. In addition, the best papers developed out of the workshop will have the opportunity to be considered for publication in the JEEMS, which "aims to promote the development, advancement and dissemination of knowledge about management issues in Central and East European countries”.
The workshop is free of charge. Food and accommodation will be provided to all selected participants. A limited number of travel grants will be offered depending on needs and funds’ availability. Please indicate in your application if you would like to be considered for travel funding.
