Junior Faculty Paper Development Workshop
BPS Division
Academy of Management Meeting Anaheim, 2017
Saturday Aug 5th, 8.30 - 11.00 am
Hyatt Regency in Atlanta - Room Baker

Do you have a great paper that seems to be going nowhere? A paper that has been rejected from a journal or two, and you're not sure whether, and how, to proceed? Or a paper that has received contradictory reviews to which you're struggling to respond? Do you have a great empirical result but aren't sure if the theoretical contribution is sufficient for an A-level publication, or what other journals you should be considering? Do you feel your paper could really use some guidance from senior, more experienced faculty?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, this PDW is for you!

Now in its sixth year, the Junior Faculty Paper Development Workshop offers junior scholars a unique opportunity to receive developmental feedback on their current research projects. Specifically, it enables junior faculty who are struggling with papers in an advanced stage to engage in an in-depth discussion with experienced researchers who will read their work and offer guidance on how, and whether, to proceed.
