International Management (IM) Division Paper Development Workshop (PDW) 2020

IM PDW Chair:

  • Nandini Lahiri (American U.)

The International Management (IM) Division will conduct a virtual Paper Development Workshop (PDW) at the forthcoming virtual Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management on Saturday, August 8, 2020 (specific time details will be updated as the virtual meeting program is developed).

Participants will get a chance to get candid and developmental feedback from several highly experienced senior scholars.

Since the purpose of this PDW is to provide junior scholars with developmental feedback on their research, papers submitted must fit under the IM Division’s mandate. The IM Division focuses on content pertaining to the theory, research, and practice of management with a cross-border or cross-cultural dimension. Major topics include: the cross-border management of operations, including multi-country, multi-unit, strategy formulation, and implementation; evolving forms and management practices in cross-border business; the cross-border differential impact of cultural, social, economic, technological, political, and other institutional forces on strategies, organizational forms, and management practices; the international competitiveness of firms, industries, and nations; and comparative management studies involving two or more countries.

While priority will be given to junior scholars, all are welcome to apply. Applicants from other fields trying to internationalize their research are also welcome.

We also encourage participants in the Paper Development Workshop to participate in a tentative “Meet-the-Editors” session (chaired by Grazia Santangelo) starting immediately prior to the PDW session.

Submission instructions:

Submit the following to nlahiri@american.edu by July 15, 2020:

  • CV and a complete paper. The paper may be a newly completed paper which could use a senior scholar’s eye or one that has been rejected and needs guidance.

Please note that you need to be registered for the virtual AOM Meeting in order to participate in this PDW.
