Purpose: Continuous publishing in academic journals has increasingly become not only a criterion for initial employment, subsequent tenure, and possible promotion, but also a necessity for most academics employed by universities and business schools. This workshop is intended to deal with the basic issues of the process of publishing in the learned journals and will address questions such as: How to choose a journal? What constitutes a valuable contribution? In what style should it be written? How do I address an editor? What do the reviewers look for? At the end of the workshop, students will be familiar with the requirements for publishing articles in various types of outlets in management and related fields.
• What is a good scientific contribution: Some criteria and examples.
• Developing a publication project.
• Publishing strategies.
• The pros and cons of publishing in edited volumes contra in journals.
• Co-authorship, acknowledgements, credit-management
• How to deal with reviews and reviewers.
• Web tools: Assessing journals and authors using ISI Web of Knowledge
• Editors' Round-Table
