Journal of International Business Policy (JIBP)
Paper Development Workshop (PDW)

EIBA 2018 | Poznan, Poland | Thursday, 13 December 2018 | 8:30–12:30

Submission deadline: 17 September 2018

We are glad to announce that the Journal of International Business Policy will conduct a Paper Development Workshop (PDW) in Poznan from 8:30am – 12:00pm on Thursday, December 13, 2018, as part of the pre-conference program for the EIBA annual meeting.

JIBP is the new sister journal to the Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) published by Palgrave Macmillan and the Academy of International Business (<>). Positioned at the intersection between international business and public policy, JIBP publishes articles that identify novel policy issues and dilemmas, propose new policy directions, and measure the effectiveness and impact of policies for business and the wider economy. These include but are not limited to policies for:

·         international business promotion,

·         foreign business attraction,

·         industrial policy,

·         social and development policy,

·         transnational governance.

The purpose of the PDW is to provide scholars with developmental feedback on their current research projects. While we hope that many of these papers will eventually be submitted to JIBP, the purpose of the PDW is broader, namely to improve the quality of IB research, to help translate IB research into policy ideas, and to bring new scholars into the IB policy field.

The PDW will consist of two parts. First, a 60-minute introductory session (8:30am – 9:30am) led by Sarianna Lundan (editor-in-chief) and Ari Van Assche (deputy editor) will discuss the manuscript review process, and various topics relevant to authors seeking to publish in JIBP or other outlets in the ecosystem of international business journals. Second, during a 120-minute main session (10:00am - 12:00pm), groups of two authors (with substantively related papers) will be paired with two JIBP Editors/ERB members, whereby each individual paper will receive attention from each paired Editor/ERB member for two times thirty minutes.

We will only accept a limited number of participants to the JIBP-PDW based on the quality and potential intellectual contribution of their submitted work. Papers should be uploaded through the JIBP Paper Development Workshop Submission System located at The deadline for submissions is 17 September 2018, in the authors’ time zone. Submitted papers and proposals must be less than 10,000 words in length, and follow the JIBP Style Guide. The Style Guide as well as more information on the goals and editorial policies of JIBP are available at<>.

Submitting authors will be notified of the results of the review process by September 28th, 2018, and will need to confirm their participation in the PDW by October 12th, 2018.

Please note that authors must be fully registered for the EIBA Annual Conference  ( in order to participate in the JIBP-PDW. Also, please note that other EIBA 2018 pre-conference events run in parallel with the JIBP-PDW.
