We invite original papers from junior scholars who have not previously published in JIBS or attended a previous AIBMENA JIBS workshop. In particular, we hope to attract papers from scholars (1) who are located in universities in MENA economies or in foreign universities that research MENA or (2) who are trained in disciplines less commonly associated with the field of IB (e.g. public policy or other conventional research areas) but interested in conducting international business research.
The PDW will be structured to provide feedback to authors on their research papers, conceptual papers, case studies and it would also benefit researchers who are designing empirical studies, on international business topics.
The agenda will cover the following topics: research challenges, strategies for paper development and publishing.
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 papers and paper ideas should be submitted to [log in to unmask] with the heading AIBMENA2016JIBSPDW. Please note that each applicant (who is attending) should make one submission only – either a full research paper or a paper idea. The first deadline for submission is over, though we will accept expressions of interest if you send them before the final deadline of 10 August, 2016. Please submit your paper, paper idea or an expression of interest by this date. Please look at previous call for papers on the AIB website to get an idea of potential topics (see https://aib.msu.edu/events/2016/callforpapers.asp) . Research papers must be less than 10,000 words in length, and follow the JIBS Style Guide (http://www.palgrave-journals.com/jibs/style_guide.html). 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 on a case to case basis and will need to confirm their participation in the PDW by 20 August 2016 by registration or email to make the necessary arrangements.
Preference will be given to participants who have not attended any of our JIBS PDWs in the past. Manuscript authors who have applied to our PDWs in the past but were not accepted to the PDW should make sure that they submit a different paper to the previous PDW.
The fee for participation is AED 500. Seats are limited and preference will be given to those who confirm and reserve their seat by paying.
AIBMENA thanks the University of Wollongong in Dubai for their help in organizing the PDW by JIBS
