JIBS Paper Development Workshop
Sponsored by the Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) and the Academy of International Business (AIB), Western Europe Chapter

EIBA 2021 Madrid | Friday 10 December 2021

Submission deadline: 27 September 2021

The 2021 Journal of International Business Studies Paper Development Workshop (JIBS-PDW) will be held on Friday 10 December 2021 online, as a pre-conference activity of the 2021 European International Business Academy (EIBA) conference, to be held at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid ( ).      

Although the conference is being held in Madrid, the JIBS-PDW will be held both online and in-person.  Participants who attend the conference in-person will be matched with Editorial Review Board members who are also attending the conference in-person.  It is being organized by Vittoria Scalera (University of Amsterdam, Secretary/Treasurer of the Western Europe Chapter of the AIB) and Becky Reuber (University of Toronto, JIBS Area Editor). The purpose of the JIBS-PDW is to provide junior scholars with developmental feedback on their current research projects in International Business. Authors will be paired with senior International Business scholars for two-on-two online discussions about their paper.

We invite original papers from doctoral students or junior faculty members who have not previously published in JIBS. We particularly encourage papers from scholars (1) who are located in universities in emerging economies or in universities that offer limited support for international business research, or (2) who are trained in disciplines less commonly associated with the field (e.g., human geography, political science, or economic history) but interested in conducting international business research.  While we hope that many of these papers will eventually be submitted to JIBS, the aim of the PDW is more generally to heighten the quality of IB research, and bring new scholars into the IB field.

To apply to the JIBS-PDW, you should submit a research paper to [log in to unmask] The deadline for submissions is September 27, 2021. Each applicant can submit only one paper, but you may submit the same (or another) version of the paper for presentation at the EIBA 2021 Conference. Papers must be less than 10,000 words in length.  Your cover page should include all the author names, emails and affiliations.  

You will be notified about the acceptance of your submission by 1 October, and will need to confirm participation by 15 October, which is the early-bird registration deadline for the conference.  All participants must register for the EIBA 2021 conference before they confirm their attendance at the JIBS-PDW.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the JIBS-PDW!  Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about it.
