    AOM PDW Careers in the Rough - Call for Manuscripts

    Overview: The Careers in the Rough workshop offers PhD students and junior scholars a great opportunity to discuss their careers-related research with leading careers scholars who will mentor them regarding their manuscript's theoretical development, methodology, discuss the implications, and provide constructive feedback regarding potential publishing outlets. Participants will be placed in conversation with two mentors based largely on the match between their manuscript and the mentors' areas of expertise and interests. This session will also offer an important opportunity to discuss core principles and practices of publishing careers research in a form of a large group discussion.

    Mentors include: Michael Arthur, Yehuda Baruch, Gayle Baugh, Torsten Biemann, Nikos Bozionelos, Shoshana Dobrow Riza, Gina Dokko, Kimberly Eddleston, Berrin Erdogan, Danna Greenberg, Jeffrey Greenhaus, Peter Heslin, Andreas Hirschi, Emma Parry, Maury Peiperl, Bert Schreurs, Daniel Spurk, Sherry Sullivan, and Daniel Turban.

    Participants are asked to submit:
    ·        a near final careers manuscript,
    ·        a brief description (up to 250 words) regarding a challenge related to your manuscript that you would like help addressing,
    ·        and a name of a target journal

    via e-mail to Igor Bartolec at bartolec@live.com by June 25. Pre-registration is required for this PDW as space is limited to 20 manuscripts. Upon the acceptance of their manuscripts, participants will be asked to finalize the online registration. Earlier applications are highly encouraged, as we will be doing rolling admissions. Precedence will be given to registrants who did not participate in the 'Careers in the Rough' online workshop this March.
