Junior Scholar Paper Development Workshop

Saturday, September 22, 2018
13:00 - 16:00 h

Paris Marriott Rive Gauche - Studio F

sponsored by Strategic Human Capital Interest Group

Workshop Information

This half-day workshop is intended for junior scholars (non-tenured) and will include two components:

A) Paper Development Session

This breakout session will provide opportunities for junior scholar participants to discuss and receive feedback on their research in an informal setting. As part of the application process, participants will submit a working paper. The workshop organizers will assign participants’ papers to groups of about three papers each, based on similarity in topic and/or methodology. Accepted participants will be expected to review each paper in their session and bring journal review-quality notes and suggestions to share during the session. This pre-work and the 90 minutes allotted to these session will ensure that workshop participants will have ample time and ability to provide in-depth analysis of working papers.

B) Senior Faculty Panel

Panelists will focus on issues most germane to junior scholars approaching tenure. Among other topics, these faculty members will share issues related to constructing a research portfolio, pivoting a publication strategy following a journal rejection, and identifying letter writers for tenure. Further, our senior faculty panelists will share their ideas on creating high quality impactful scholarship from their perspective as current and former journal editors.

Application Requirement

Applications are required for this workshop. To be considered for this workshop, applicants should be junior scholars (non-tenured) and should submit the following materials as a single document through the workshop website:

  • Current CV with publication pipeline
  • Working paper. We are explicitly seeking working papers in ‘mid-development’ that are:
    • well-enough developed that significant decisions have been made about the specific questions to be answered.  This may include papers with some analytical work completed but can also include those in pre-analytical stages of conceptual development.
    •  not so well-developed that the authors are unlikely to want to make changes based on the feedback they receive in the session.  A paper that has been submitted and rejected is acceptable if authors are planning a substantial revision.

Accepted applicants will need to confirm their attendance by registering for the workshop by September 1, 2018. Saturday Workshops at the Annual Conference are included in the registration for the Annual Conference. Participants in workshops must be registered for the Annual Conference.
