Team Leading the Workshop 

Marcus M. Larsen (GSJ Associate Editor), Professor, Copenhagen Business School (mml.si@cbs.dk) 

Sam Dawa, Associate Professor, Makerere University Business School (samdawa@gmail.com) 


Purpose and format 

Makerere University and Makerere University Business School will, in collaboration, host a regional idea and paper development workshop (IPDW) for the Global Strategy Journal (GSJ). GSJ is the leading journal on global strategic management research. The purpose of the event is to gather researchers in the East African region interested in publishing in GSJ. The workshop is designed to help participants finetune ideas that will develop into well-crafted manuscripts suitable for submission to GSJ and developmental feedback on full paper drafts to be submitted to GSJ.  

The workshop is open to all scholars, but preference is given to doctoral students and early-career academics in the East African region. 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.   

The workshop will run for the full day of February 20, 2024, with roundtable discussions of paper ideas from participants and full paper presentations by participants. The workshop will conclude with a dinner for presenting participants.  



Prospective participants are invited to submit either a two-page proposal of their paper idea or a full paper to Marcus M. Larsen at mml.si@cbs.dk by January 20, 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 manuscripts will be selected based on their fit with the journal and the quality of their submitted work.
