Workshop Description

The Global Strategy Paper Development Workshop (PDW), organized by the Global Strategy Interest Group and sponsored by the Global Strategy Journal, will be held online from 10:00 to 13:00 h UTC -4 on Saturday, September 18. This PDW is open to all conference attendees.

The purpose of this PDW is to provide scholars with developmental feedback on their current research ideas and papers in the field of global strategy, delve into the development of early research ideas, and offer a stimulating discussion on new research areas and data related to the global strategy context. The PDW will feature two panels and small-group feedback sessions. The PDW is open to all scholars, but preference will be given to doctoral students, early- and mid-career academics. While we hope that many of the participating papers and research ideas 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, stimulate new research ideas and approaches to analyze global strategy phenomena, and to connect new and established scholars into the field.
