Call for Participants for AOM 2019 PDW Session

Submitted by AFAM on Sun, 06/23/2019 - 5:07pm

The purpose of this PDW session is to assist early career scholars focusing on management in Africa who have limited experience in publishing high impact research to complete a high quality research paper for later submission. The PDW will help early career scholars to understand the key elements of writing an empirical paper for publication through one-to-one developmental feedback in a supportive environment. Second, these developmentarelationships will continue after the 2019 Academy of Management meeting as both memberwork toward the goal of getting the manuscript submitted and published in a top-tier journal. Thus, a unique aspect of this initiative is that the developmental relationship is goal-directed; it is focused on a specific task (improving a drafted manuscript) that leads to critical short- term results (publication), more publications on management in Africa, and ultimately participants’ long-term productivity as a management scholar. In addition to improving the careers of early career scholars, this PDW will support the Academys vision to strengthen  the breadth of management scholarship to be more inclusive.
