AMD and the University of Exeter Business School offers a unique opportunity for management scholars to develop their work for possible publication in AMD. During this workshop, participants will meet with AMD Editor Peter Bamberger to discuss their ideas or extended abstracts.

Preference for discussions will be given to submitted abstracts, but data-supported concept frameworks will also be considered. In line with the mission of AMD, all submissions should be framed around empirical exploration.

Submission Deadline: 19 February 2020

AMD editor, Peter Bamberger, will choose the abstracts that will be invited for discussion.
Papers that are already under review at AMD (or elsewhere) cannot be submitted to this workshop.

  • Those who wish to have their paper reviewed and discussed should submit an extended abstract (between 5 and 10 pages of text) or paper ideas by 19 February 2020. Extended abstracts should be about 10 pages, double spaced, excluding tables, figures and references.
  • Abstracts will be accepted on a competitive basis.
  • The abstract should provide a synopsis of the research question, its relevance and significance, a statement relating to the limited ability of extant concepts and/or theory to provide a coherent response to that question, the empirical approach, and the implications of the findings for down-the –road theorizing.

Paper feedback sessions are free of charge and open to all.

Discussions will revolve around papers submitted and accepted for this workshop.

Register (no charge) and submit an abstract for discussion

Abstracts that are accepted to the workshop for discussion are not guaranteed acceptance and publication in AMD. All manuscripts submitted to AMD are double blind peer reviewed. However, it is our hope that the workshop experience provides attendees with substantive feedback to improve their work.
