Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD)
Presentation and Proposal Workshop
May and July 2021
Dr. Kevin Rockmann, Editor-in-Chief
Hosted by Dr. Elizabeth George, University of Auckland
The purpose of this two-part workshop is to learn about AMD and then to create a proposal for a project that follows the AMD mission and focus, which will then be reviewed by the AMD editor and discussed.
Part 1: 27 May, 9 a.m. (26 May, 5 p.m. U.S. ET)
On 27 May (26 May U.S.), Dr. Kevin Rockmann will host a 90-minute discussion about the AMD mission. Topics will include the unique features of the journal, innovations at the journal, and how best to craft an article for the journal. There will be plenty of time for questions from attendees.
At the end of this session, Dr. Rockmann will issue an invitation to all attendees to submit a proposal for an AMD-inspired empirical exploration, which will be discussed during Part 2 on 23 July. While the proposals will not appear in the journal, the goal is to provide useful feedback so that proposals will lead to future AMD submissions and publications. Proposals will need to be submitted by 16 July to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Part 2: 23 July, 9 a.m. (22 July, 5 p.m. U.S. ET)
For those interested in participating in Part 2, here are the guidelines for the proposal:
The potential theoretical contributions
AMD is interested in papers that open new lines of inquiry. That is, an interesting or unexpected finding is not enough; the findings should have the ability to inform the phenomenon in such a way that other researchers want to go and study it. This section of the proposal should include a discussion as to how this research might open new research endeavors.
At the session on July 23, those who have submitted proposals will be invited to a roundtable discussion, where participants will be able to briefly share their ideas, and Dr. Rockmann will provide feedback. Time for discussion and networking between participants will also be provided.
Participants might find it useful to look at the following to get a better understanding of the various types of papers published in Academy of Management Discoveries:
This event is sponsored by the Future of Work and Organizations beacon at the University of Auckland
