AAOM/APJM Paper Develop Workshop
School of Management, Xiamen University
November 5, 2016
Asia Academy of Management (AAOM) and Asia Pacific Journal of Management (APJM) will conduct a paper development workshop (PDW) on November 5, 2016 at the School of Management, Xiamen University, Xiamen, China.
The workshop will be led by Jane Lu, who is the Editor-in-Chief of APJM. Other panelists of PDW will include senior editors of APJM as well as other leading scholars.
The purpose of the PDW is to provide feedback to junior scholars and doctoral students on their research projects that are in advanced stage of development. Consistent with the mission of the Asia Academy of Management, our objective is to encourage scholars to do quality research on issues that are of relevance to Asia. While we certainly hope that the authors will develop their work and submit to APJM, there is no obligation to do so.
We encourage authors to submit their original work under two categories - full length papers and idea papers. Full length papers should not be more than 10,000 words in length, while paper ideas should not be more than 2500 words in length. You can submit the papers that you have previously submitted to APJM or other journals to get development feedback during the PDW. The space is limited to 20 papers.
Please make your submissions to email@example.com by September 24, 2016. We will make the final decisions and inform the authors by October 10, 2016.
Please note that AAOM members will receive priority to attend the PDW. The annual membership fee is HK$700 (About US$ 90) for academics and HK$500 (about US$ 65) for students. You get free electronic subscription to APJM with annual membership. Please feel free to write to Jane Lu (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
