    AMR In-person joint workshop hosted by Nova School of Business & Economics

    Nova School of Business & Economics, Portugal
    Wednesday, 15 May 2024
    9:00-17:00 (UTC+1/GMT+1)

    Purpose and Agenda

    This idea development workshop (IDW) is primarily geared toward early career researchers (e.g., assistant professors and postdoctoral fellows) and PhD students who are interested in publishing in AMR – the highest-ranked journal publishing conceptual and theoretical manuscripts. Although this IDW is open to anyone, preference will be shown to individuals from institutions based in Western European countries. This workshop is designed to help participants develop great ideas that will be the foundation for well-crafted manuscripts suitable for submission to AMR.

    The workshop will consist of two parts. We will first discuss general information about publishing in AMR, such as what makes a successful AMR paper, the main reasons that papers are rejected, and strategies for addressing the core challenges that editors and reviewers see in rejected papers.

    The second half of the workshop will entail roundtable discussions of theory ideas from the participants (please come prepared to discuss your idea using the slide presentation detailed below). We will match 4-5 participants with an Associate Editor. These groups will discuss the participant ideas and provide the participant with insight into how to clarify the paper idea and move the idea forward. Participation in this part of the workshop is limited to 56 participants.

    Registration is required for all participants and the deadline to register is 15 March 2024.

Participants will be notified of the proposal acceptance by 9 April 2024.
