The 2022 joint Paper Development
Workshop (PDW) of the Journal of International Business Studies and the Journal of International Business Policy
will be held on Thursday April 7, 2022 at Henley Business School, University of Reading. The workshop takes place before the
AIB-UKI Chapter Conference.
It is being held late in the afternoon (16:00-18:30) so participants are also able to participate in the
and the Doctoral
associated with the conference.
The purpose of the PDW is to
provide scholars with developmental feedback on their international business research. There will be a plenary session on publishing and then authors will be paired with senior International Business scholars from the JIBS or JIBP Editorial Board for a small
group discussion about their paper.
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.
Prospective participants should
submit their paper by email, by Friday, March 11
