Workshop Information

The purpose of this PDW is to provide scholars with developmental feedback on their current research papers in the field of global strategy. The PDW is open to all scholars, but preference will be given to doctoral students and early career academics. While we hope that many of the participating papers will be eventually submitted to the Global Strategy Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, and other journals that publish work in the field of international strategy, the purpose of the PDW is broader: to improve the quality of global strategy research by providing quality feedback, and to bring new scholars into the field.

The dynamics of the workshop will be as follows: the organizers will create groups of up to three papers with related topics and/or similar methodology and distribute them to all of the authors of each group. Prior to the workshop, participants in each group will prepare comments and feedback on the other papers in their group. Authors will have the opportunity to engage in a group discussion facilitated by one or more senior scholars familiar with the topic and/or methods used. Furthermore, senior faculty members will provide detailed feedback to authors, including suggestions on how to progress the papers. Please note that, to ensure a high quality of interaction, space will be limited.
