The Department of International Business at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) will host an Idea and Paper Development Workshop (IPDW) in collaboration with the Global Strategy Journal (GSJ) on September 26 and 27, 2024 in Ålesund, Norway. GSJ is the leading journal on global strategic management research and a top-tier scholarly journal in management.

The purpose of the workshop is to help participants finetune ideas and provide developmental feedback on full paper drafts focusing on contemporary issues in global strategy.

The workshop is open to all scholars, but preference will be given to early-career academics and colleagues who have not yet published in GSJ. GSJ Co-Editors and Associate Editors will provide detailed feedback to the authors in a roundtable discussion format. The workshop will also invite peer feedback from the other participants to offer a rich developmental experience to the authors.

While we hope that many of the submitted papers will eventually be submitted to GSJ, the workshop aims to improve the quality of global strategy research by providing quality feedback and bringing new scholars into the field. Thus, opportunities for networking and discussing future collaboration will be an integral part of the workshop program.

The workshop will start on September 26 in the afternoon with a plenary session and will be organized with a mix of paper presentations and roundtable discussion sections. Full papers will be presented by participants and discussed by GSJ editorial team members. Paper ideas from participants will be discussed in roundtables, with each roundtable led by a GSJ editorial team member. The workshop will end after lunch on September 27.


Prospective participants are invited to submit either a two-page proposal of their paper idea or a full paper (max 10.000 words) by June 10, 2024. Each participant may submit only one idea proposal or a full manuscript. The cover page of the proposal/manuscript should include all authors’ names, emails, and affiliations. In the email subject, please specify “Paper idea proposal” or “Full paper,” depending on the submission type. Idea proposals and manuscriptswill be selected based on their fit with the journal and the quality of their submitted work.

Please email your submission to: bella.nujen@ntnu.no
