Journal of International Business Policy 

Paper Development Workshop
Thursday, December 10, 2020


The Journal of International Business Policy will conduct a Virtual Paper
Development Workshop (JIBP PDW) on Thursday, 10 December, 2020 as a
pre-conference activity 2020 European International Business Academy (EIBA)
conference ( <>


JIBP is the 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
provide guidelines on how to steer a policy turn in international business
research. 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 editorial board members, whereby each individual paper will
receive attention from the paired editors for 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 submitted to Ari Van Assche (
<mailto:[log in to unmask]> [log in to unmask]). The deadline for
submissions is October 15. Submitted papers 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
<> Each applicant can submit only one
paper, but you may submit the same version of the paper that has been
submitted to the EIBA 2020 Conference. Please include the names,
affiliations and e-mail addresses of all authors on the cover page.

We will notify you about the acceptance to the JIBP PDW by November 1, and
will need to confirm participation by November 15, which is the early-bird
registration deadline for the conference. Please note that authors will need
to register for the EIBA conference ( <> in order to participate in the JIBP
