    Call for applications: 3rd Paper Development Workshop for PhD Students and Early Career Scholars in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE)

    This joint paper development workshop (PDW) of EGOS, OS, and OMT seeks to provide developmental opportunities for late stage PhD students and early career scholars who are based in the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and do research in the field of organizational and management studies. The PDW aims to help participants develop their research and academic writing skills. It also seeks to increase participants’ awareness of the requirements, expectations, and procedures involved in the review processes at top peer-reviewed academic journals through presentations and firsthand discussion with established scholars and editors of journals such as OS, JEEMS, and JMS.

    In particular, we aim to support participants to develop their papers into conference papers to be submitted to the EGOS Colloquium in Tallinn, July 5-8, 2018 and/or to the OMT Division of the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Chicago, August 10-14, 2018. In addition, the best papers developed out of the workshop will have the opportunity to be considered for publication in the JEEMS – a journal that "aims to promote the development, advancement and dissemination of knowledge about management issues in Central and East European countries”.

    The workshop is free of charge. Meals and accommodation will be provided to all selected participants. A limited number of travel grants will be offered depending on needs and funding availability; please indicate in your application if you would like to be considered for such support.

    To be considered for the PDW, please submit a brief motivation letter explaining why you think you are a good candidate for the workshop, how you fit into overall aim and format of the planned PDW, in terms of stage of career and research interests. In your submission, please also include an extended abstract (of about 2,000 words) of a manuscript which you would like to develop further during the workshop. The abstract should include an explanation as to the
    purpose of the paper, the theoretical background and, for empirical papers, the methodological approach.
