Reviewing in the Rough

It's the 9th Annual Reviewing in the Rough!!!

Reviewing in the Rough is a two hour workshop taking place at this year’s Academy of Management Annual Meeting in Boston on Friday, August 9, 1:45 PM – 3:45 PM. This workshop will provide participants an opportunity to gain key insights about the review process and quality reviewing from Associate Editors and Editorial Board Members at leading journals in our field. Before the conference, participants will complete their own reviews of an Academy of Management Journal original submission, then discuss and receive feedback on these from experienced scholars in roundtable sessions. Participants will learn exclusive background information about the original submission from the author himself, along with the actual reviews of his original submission and how they helped shape the final manuscript.

This is the 9th year of RIR and we are thrilled to have many outstanding scholars participating including (in alphabetical order): Drew Carton, Trevor Foulk, Matthew Grimes, Cristiano Guarana, Ronald Humphrey, Peter Jordan, Suzanne Masterson, Christopher Myers, Frits Pil, Michael Pratt, Christian Resick, Kristie Rogers, and John Paul Stephens.
