Academy of International Business 2021 Annual Conference 



Global Strategy Journal Paper Development Workshop


Online, Saturday, June 26, 2021 

Submission Deadline: June 10, 2021 


Global Strategy Journal (GSJ) is the leading journal on global strategic management research. It aims to shape the direction of conversations on the interaction between the global context and strategic management. It is a journal of the Strategic Management Society. More information on the journal and the society is available at  


The Paper Development Workshop (PDW) is offered in connection with the 2021 AIB Annual Meeting. The PDW will be held on Saturday, June 26, 2021, from 13:00 to 15:00 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) as part of the pre-conference activities.  


This PDW provides scholars with developmental feedback on their current papers and research projects. The PDW is open to all scholars, but preference is given to doctoral students and early career academics. Co-Editors, Associate Editors, and Consulting Editors of GSJ will provide detailed feedback to the authors in a roundtable discussion format. The workshop will also invite peer feedback from the other participants to offer a rich developmental experience to the authors. While we hope that many of the participating papers will be eventually submitted to GSJ, the purpose of the PDW is broader: to improve the quality of global strategy research by providing quality feedback, and to bring new scholars into the field.  


The senior mentors are Gabriel Benito, Co-Editor; Alvaro Cuervo-Cazurra, Co-Editor; Timothy Devinney, Consulting Editor; Ajai Gaur, Consulting Editor; Marcus Moller Larsen, Associate Editor; Shige Makino, Associate Editor; Ram Mudambi, Co-Editor; Lucia Piscitello, Associate Editor; Anupama Phene, Associate Editor; and Steve Tallman, Founding Editor  


Prospective participants in the 2021 GSJ PDW are invited to submit their paper manuscripts via the AIB submission system ( by June 10, 2021. Each participant may submit only one manuscript for the GSJ PDW. The cover page of the manuscript should include all authors' names, e-mails, and affiliations. Manuscripts will be selected based on the fit with the journal and the quality of their submitted work. Authors will be notified about the acceptance of their submissions by June 15, 2021. Participants will be required to register for the AIB 2021 meeting.
