    Inaugural MOR International Conference and Paper Development Workshop

    March 6-7, 2024

    University of Bath, UK

    Paper submission deadline: October 31, 2023

    To facilitate MOR's mission to become a premier journal that provides ground-breaking insights about the organization and management in China and global comparable contexts, International Association for Chinese Management Research (IACMR) and Management and Organization Review (MOR) will host a two-day conference from March 6 to 7, 2024, at the University of Bath, UK.

    The workshop will be led by Prof. Xiao-Ping Chen, Editor-in-Chief of MOR, and a few deputy and senior editors of MOR. We encourage all IACMR members, especially doctoral students and junior faculty to submit your complete papers to this conference. All selected participants will receive direct feedback from MOR editors in a small group setting, which is conducive to open discussion and instant feedback. While there is no obligation that the invited manuscript must be submitted to MOR, we strongly encourage the authors to do so. We plan to offer a fast-track review process for the submitted papers and publish them in a timely fashion once they meet MOR publishing standard.  

    Submission Guidelines

    We welcome any research papers related to the management and organization in China and global comparable contexts, in the area of organizational behaviour, human resource management, firm strategy, entrepreneurship, international business, family business, and technology and innovation. Please submit your full paper to Dr. Chenjian Zhang, email address MOR2024@bath.ac.uk by October 31, 2023. Please refer to the MOR Author Submission Guidelines to prepare your manuscript. Acceptance decision will be made by November 30, 2023.


    Conference Format

    To facilitate close personal engagement with, and feedback from, deputy and senior editors of MOR, space for this PDW is limited. We anticipate accepting between 10-20 papers for this conference, depending on the quality of submissions. The conference will be conducted face-to-face at the University of Bath. In an effort to make the event more inclusive, we might offer a session in a virtual format if necessary.
