This OS Paper Development Workshop (PDW) seeks to provide developmental opportunities for advanced PhD students and early career scholars who are engaged in research in the field of organization and management studies (from a social science tradition). The PDW will help participants develop their research and academic writing skills. It also seeks to increase participants’ awareness of the requirements, expectations, and procedures involved in the review processes at top peer-reviewed academic journals through presentations and first-hand discussion with established scholars and editors of Organization Studies. This specific PDW is directly aimed at emerging scholars from countries in the Mediterranean region.

In particular, we aim to support participants in developing their manuscripts into conference papers to be successfully submitted to events such as the EGOS Colloquium and/or the OMT Division of the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (such conference presentations are an important step towards publication) or to make existing manuscripts ready for submission to top-tier journals.

The workshop is free of charge and meals are provided. Travel and accommodation have to be organized and covered by participants. A limited number of stipends will be offered to cover at least part of the cost for travel and accommodation for participants who cannot obtain (sufficient) funding from their home institutions. Please indicate in your application if you would like to be considered for financial support (max. € 400.00) and confirm, in this case, that you have no or only limited funding from your home institution. For those who cannot participate in person, we plan to provide personalized feedback to 5 papers on dedicated on-line sessions to be organized depending on demand.
