Workshop Information

The objective of this workshop is to offer an interactive session that provides insights that engage scholars throughout SMS who are (or may be) interested in publishing rigorous and impactful strategy research. We will have three sequential panels, consisting of panels of editors and authors of recently published strategy process and strategy practice papers that represent a variety of content areas and methodologies.  For each of the panels, the author will briefly walk through his or her journey from submission to acceptance. Then the editor will share his or her perspective on the process from ‘the other side,’ as well as reflect on how this paper is distinctive or similar to others they know based on their considerable editorial and publishing experience. At the end of the workshop, we will have time for Q&A with all panel participants to reflect on the publication process.

The Editors will represent the following journals: 

  • Ann Langley: Strategic Organization
  • Richard Whittington: Strategic Management Journal
  • Melissa Graebner: Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal
