Virtual SIM Research Development Workshop – Call for Manuscript Submissions

Published on

Call for Manuscript Submissions
Virtual SIM Research Development Workshop
AOM 2023 Boston August 4th – 8th
Submission Deadline: June 1, 2023

Do you have a draft paper in the Social Issues in Management (SIM) field that would benefit from an in-depth developmental review by a leading scholar in the subject? If so, please consider submitting to the SIM Research Development Workshop! The SIM Research Development Workshop brings together SIM researchers to improve manuscripts prior to their submission to high quality management journals. The purpose of the session is to exchange ideas and get feedback, in a collaborative fashion. You’ll get to share your work with a more experienced scholar and build your network, to boot.

Acceptance to the Research Development Workshop is competitive. Applicants should submit their papers to the organizers by June 1 (you can submit here). We will then select the best submissions and notify those accepted by June 15. Once a paper is accepted, we will assign it to a mentor who will have comments ready for feedback and discussion in a virtual session you will arrange during the dates of the annual meetings (8/4-8/8). You can however meet in person during the AOM meetings should that be more convenient. As part of the application process, you will be allowed to suggest mentors for your manuscript.  We are looking for complete drafts of works-in-progress manuscripts. Applicants’ submissions should range from 20 to 40 pages in length, including references, tables, figures, and so forth. Both theoretical and empirical papers are eligible for review. You may send a paper that is being presented at the AOM or another conference but not a manuscript that is currently under review for a journal. Manuscripts should be submitted as Word documents (not PDF files) and should NOT be anonymous.
