The purpose of the PDW is to provide scholars with developmental feedback on their international business research. We invite original papers from new authors who have not previously published in their targeted journal, JIBS or JIBP.  We particularly encourage submissions from scholars who are at universities that offer limited research support, or who are trained in disciplines less commonly associated with the field (e.g.  geography, political science or history) but are interested in targeting international business journals.


PDW participants will receive feedback on their work from experienced international business scholars on the JIBS or JIBP Editorial Board.  The workshop will start with an introductory session on publishing in these journals, led by JIBS Area Editor Becky Reuber. Authors will then be paired with experienced scholars to discuss their paper.


Prospective participants should submit their paper by email, by Monday, February 3 (to [log in to unmask] ).  An applicant may submit only one paper, but may submit the same paper for presentation at the conference.  The cover page should include your name, email address and affiliation.

Participants will be notified about the acceptance of their submissions by Friday, February 7. They will be required to confirm their participation and register for the conference by Friday March 6.
