AMR-OMT Paper Development Workshop


This developmental workshop offers the opportunity for Ph.D. students and faculty members at an early stage of their career to develop their papers for publication in quality outlets. The workshop will be led by editors from the Academy of Management Review and senior scholars from the Organization and Management Theory Division.

The workshop is open to both theory and empirical papers on micro and macro topics within management research, and we particularly encourage for this workshop papers focused on questions of framing, identity, image and impression management at different levels of analysis.

Within the workshop, emphasis will be placed on developing and writing strong theory, as this relates to theory papers as well as the theoretical contribution and theoretical implications for empirical papers. Authors will receive feedback from AMR editors, OMT senior scholars and peers with similar research interests.

Participation in the workshop is limited to 50 participants. OMT will provide ten $250.00 competitive travel stipends to aid PhD students with their travel expenses and encourage them to attend the workshop. If you are a PhD student who wishes to apply for these stipends, please indicate this in your submission.
