    Dear Academy Colleagues:

    I am happy to invite you to participate in an online workshop which is part of the UN PRME World Tour Research Paper Development Program 2022-2024!!  Are you interested in learning more about publishing (in general) and conducting research on Latin America and the Caribbean? Are you an early or mid-career scholar who would like to get feedback on your manuscript?  This is a great chance to get feedback from experienced senior scholars!


    The workshop has two parts, the first part is open to everyone interested in learning more about the craft of publishing.  This part of the workshop has two parts.


    Editors' panel: The audience will attend an editor's panel conversation on how to publish responsible management/leadership and sustainable business research in international, peer-reviewed management journals.


    The panel will feature current and former editors and associate editors from general management journals such as the Academy of Management journals, Journal of Management Studies, as well as specialized responsible management journals such as Business & Society, and Journal of Business Ethics.


    Research roundtable: The second section will consist of a round table of highly respected and well-known scholars who have expertise about pressing social issues and more specifically knowledge about these issues in a Latin American context. In addition, the panelists also have experience in publishing this type of research in high-ranking journals. The scholars will discuss the main challenges and opportunities for publishing research about the Latin American and Caribbean region.


    The round table will feature senior scholars such as Steffan Boehm (University of Exeter), Punit Arora (City University of New York), Tricia Olsen (University of Minnesota) and Jorge Rivera (George Washington University).


    Q&A/Networking: The audience will have an opportunity to directly ask questions to the panel members, and to participate in small group discussion in break-out rooms.


    THE SECOND PART (deadline, January 12th, 2024)


    The second part of the workshop is only open to authors who have submitted a paper that has been accepted by the organizing committee. It will consist of small group discussions where authors will receive direct feedback on their work in progress from invited mentors who are all experienced scholars who are editors, associate editors, board members, authors, and reviewers for leading management journals. Each paper will be assigned one to two mentors.
