CALL FOR MANUSCRIPTS
Fostering Publication from Around the World in Leading Organization and Strategy Journals
STR Global Representatives' PDW - Academy of Management, Vancouver, Canada
Submission Deadline: April 3rd, 2020
Sorry for cross-posting
Around the world we find researchers engaged in exciting, innovative, and relevant research projects. Unfortunately, many of these geographically diverse researchers face significant obstacles that prevent them from publishing in leading, high-impact journals and reaching a broad audience. This PDW is targeted to help scholars from under-represented countries who seek successful publication of their research in top scholarly journals. The PDW has a very practical, hands-on orientation.
The PDW consists of three highly interactive sessions, which complement each other.
Paper Development Session: In this session, registered participants will receive feedback on their submitted manuscripts from facilitators, along with suggestions on how to successfully publish them.
Editor Panel: Current and former journal editors share their insights from handling manuscripts originating in different countries, and discuss important issues such as how to frame research projects for publication, the distinct requirements of different outlets, how to overcome language difficulties, etc. All panelists have served on multiple editorial boards.
Global Scholars Panel: Well-published scholars from around the world share their successes and challenges and provide their experiences with the review process.
Throughout the PDW, ongoing dialogue will address different types of research articles (quantitative, qualitative, theoretical, etc.), taking into consideration the research traditions of scholars from different parts of the world.
After the PDW the STR Executive Committee plans to also sponsor an offsite lunch for registered participants.

In order to encourage participation from under-represented countries in the academy, the STR Division will offer need-based financial support. The financial support will include up to four (4) free conference registration vouchers (for first-time conference attendees ONLY). Financial support will be offered on the basis of: (a) quality and promise of the manuscripts, and (b) demonstrated need, both to be determined solely by the STR Division. Scholars admitted to the PDW are encouraged to seek additional "matching" funding from other sources. The PDW organizers will arrange recommendation letters, if needed, to secure these additional funds.
