Global Strategy Interest Group
Paper Development Workshop

Saturday, November 5, 2011 1:30-5:30pm


The Global Strategy Interest Group is organizing the Paper Development Workshop (PDW) to be held in Miami, USA, from 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm on Saturday, November 5, 2011, as part of the pre-conference program of SMS Annual Conference. The PDW is organized by the GS Interest Group but is open to all members of the Society.

The purpose of the PDW is to provide junior scholars with developmental feedback on their current research projects in global strategy and an opportunity to network with editorial representatives of several major journals. While we hope that many of these papers will be eventually submitted to SMJ, GSJ, or SEJ, the purpose of the PDW is broader: to improve the quality of global strategy research and bring new scholars into the field.

Call for Papers

Submit Your Paper

Submission deadline is August 31, 2011.

We invite original papers from junior faculty members who have not previously published in any of the SMS’ flagship journals. In particular, we hope to attract papers from scholars:

The PDW will be structured to provide feedback to authors with research papers, and to researchers who are designing empirical studies, on global strategy topics. Authors of research papers will work in small groups along with members from well published scholars and members of editorial teams in select journals, to get feedback on improving his/her paper. The PDW will include a plenary session on theory development and study design with leaders of several major journals. Participants will work in small-groups to discuss successful publication strategies. Faculty members will include Mitchell P. Koza (Chair), Björn Ambos, Africa Ariño, Alvaro Cuervo-Cazurra, Charles Dhanaraj, James Robbins, Silviya Svejenova, Steve Tallman, and others.

Participation at the PDW is limited. Participants will be invited based on the quality of their submitted work. Submissions can be either full research papers or proposals (similar to the SMS conference submissions). Papers and ideas should be submitted using the upload site. The deadline for submissions is August 31, 2011.

Accepted participants will be notified about the acceptance of their submissions no later than September 15, 2011 and will need to confirm their participation in the PDW by September 30, 2011.

Please address any questions to Mitchell P. Koza.
