Spotlight on:

Idea Development Workshops and

Paper Development Workshops

“Paper development workshops are essential…in addition to helping scholars refine their work for submission, these events help us build up a network of committed scholars. These events are worth it for the connections we make with interesting scholars, and the opportunity to help them publish exciting and engaging research.”

-Paul Hibbert, Editor, Academy of Management Learning & Education

This week, AOM is shining a spotlight on scenes from recent Paper Development Workshops (PDWs) and Idea Development Workshops (IDWs). Over the last year, AOM members and non-members have gathered at workshops in various cities and universities around the world for guidance and expertise in the development of their manuscripts for potential submission to an Academy of Management journal.


The workshops include general presentations about the individual journal by members of that journal's editorial team, as well as roundtable discussions that focus on providing authors with practical and developmental feedback aimed at strengthening and improving their papers. The workshops are open to all Academy members, as well as non-members.


Attending PDWs and IDWs allows management scholars to connect with peers while receiving personal feedback on their papers and ideas. The goal is for scholars to emerge from the workshop with a more polished product than before and an increased sense of community.


PDWs and IDWs may be in-person or virtual. Learn more and check out upcoming workshops here.
