About AMLE

AMLE is rated as 4* in the UK CABS list and A* in the Australian Business Deans’ Council list of journals. The journal’s main emphasis is on theoretical debates about management learning and education in all types of settings—schools and universities as well as businesses and public and nonprofit organizations. Additionally, AMLE publishes work that addresses critical theoretical debates about “the business of business schools,” including the careers of management educators.

Workshop Overview

This workshop has two main parts. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Part 1 comprises a general introduction to AMLE, touching on its overlaps with other key journals in the field. The main focus is on writing manuscripts that advance our theoretical understanding about AMLE phenomena for the research article and essay sections of the journal. This first part of the workshop is open to all interested participants.

Part 2 is focused on supporting and advising researchers, with current work-in-progress, how to develop and refine their papers with submission to AMLE in mind. Those wishing to participate in part two should note the requirements listed below.

Part 2 Requirements

  • Have either an extended abstract (5 pages) or a full paper that you would like to develop through constructive critique and that fits with AMLE’s focus and content areas. Previous FTEs can serve as guideposts to clarify AMLE’s focus and content areas (Foster, 2018; Hibbert et al., 2021; Lindebaum, 2023; Hibbert, in Rockmann et al., 2021).
  • Send the submission in Word or PDF format, no later than 15 September 2023, to Dirk Lindebaum c/o AMLE at Your submission must have a cover page that includes: the author name(s) and affiliation(s); three-four keywords; and an email address for the lead author. An abstract of up to 200 words should be provided on the first page of the paper. If you are sending an extended abstract, include a very brief plan for developing the full paper at the end of your text.
  • Agree to your paper being discussed in a small group with other participants, as arranged by the workshop facilitators, and be willing and able to provide a short (5-minute maximum) overview of your paper to others in the discussion group.
  • Commit to attending the whole workshop if your submission is accepted.

You can still attend and participate if you do not have work to discuss in Part 2. Note, however, that preference will be given to authors that submit papers. Email Dirk Lindebaum c/o AMLE at to confirm. As with paper submissions, let us know by 15 Sep 2023, if you wish to register without submitting work for Part 2.


There is no registration fee, but participants are responsible to arrange their own travel and accommodation. Registration, submission of an extended abstract, and commitment to attend is required for all participants wishing to attend both parts of the PDW.
Submission deadline: 15 Sep 2023
