The Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal (SEJ), in collaboration with San Francisco State University, will offer a paper development workshop (PDW) on Saturday, April 20, 2024. SEJ is a leading entrepreneurship journal publishing influential work on entrepreneurship and innovation.

The goal of the PDW is to provide scholars with developmental feedback on their current research projects in entrepreneurship and innovation and to help them position their manuscripts for possible submission to the Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal. Early-career researchers and those who have yet to publish in SEJ are particularly encouraged to apply. The workshop will be led by Riitta Katila (SEJ Associate Editor), Yong Li (SEJ Co-Editor) and David Sirmon (SEJ Co-Editor). We will first discuss general information about publishing in SEJ, such as what makes a successful SEJ paper, and how to address the key challenges that Editors and reviewers see in the review process. We will then match the participants with SEJ editors and provide developmental feedback aimed at improving the manuscripts.

Prospective participants are invited to submit their proposals to rieengagement@sfsu.edu with the subject “SEJ PDW” by February 23, 2024. Each participant may submit only one proposal to the PDW. The research project submitted for consideration must not have been published. Please include in a single PDF file (1) a cover letter with all authors’ names, e-mails, and affiliations, as well as research question, intended contribution, and the status of the proposal (completed manuscript, preliminary findings, et al.); (2) the research proposal (no more than 10 pages, double-spaced, excluding tables, figures, and references); and (3) the Curriculum Vitae of the author(s) planning to attend the workshop. Authors will be notified about the status of their submissions by March 8th, 2024.

The PDW will be part of the Annual Responsible Innovation and Entrepreneurship (RI&E) conference at the Lam Family College of Business in San Francisco to be held on April 19th-20th, 2024. The PDW on April 20th will be free for participants with accepted research proposals. Those interested in the conference on April 19th may register through this link (to be finalized soon). Coffee, pastries, lunch, and a reception will be included as part of the registration. Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation costs (Please see here for suggested hotels).
