Workshop Goal

The goal of the PDW is to provide authors with guidance and expertise of the AMLE editorial team as to how they can best develop English language papers for publication in journals that pertain to management learning, management education, and the scholarship of management and business schools. Papers will be solicited and read in advance by facilitators who are experienced editors and reviewers in the field. This part of the session will be spent providing specific guidance to improve the author's manuscript and prepare it for submission to a prestigious management education journal.

Content of the Workshop

The workshop will consist of roundtable discussions of author papers. Authors will receive feedback and suggestions from members of the current AMLE Editorial Team and Editorial Board Members about how they can best shape and develop their papers for publication. The discussion will focus on providing authors with practical and developmental feedback aimed at strengthening and improving their papers.
