Dear Colleagues,


Apologies for cross posting.


On 25 April 2019, as part of the AIB-UKI 2019 conference, we will be holding a joint Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) and Journal of International Business Policy (JIBP) Paper Development Workshop. The purpose of the PDW is to provide scholars who have not yet published in JIBS or JIBP (whichever journal they are targeting) with developmental feedback on their current research projects in the area of international business. While we hope that many of these papers will be eventually submitted to JIBS or JIBP, the purpose of the PDW is broader, i.e. of improving the quality of IB research and bringing new scholars into the IB field.


Please find attached the Call for Papers for the PDW.
