Are you looking to publish business and society research in top journals and have impact in the world? Do you have work in progress that would benefit from expert feedback from senior scholars?

PRME UK and Ireland, in conjunction with partner institutions (City University London, University of Bath, University College Dublin, University of Glasgow, and University of Nottingham) is holding a series of five paper development workshops between 2021-2025 to help early and mid-career scholars develop their business and society work for publication and impact. The first workshop, which will be held online, will be hosted by the Centre for Business, Organisations and Society at the University of Bath on May 14th,  2021.

Participants to the workshop will benefit from guidance from experienced scholars and journal editors/associate editors, and get insight on what it takes to publish papers with a business and society focus in leading peer reviewed journals. They will also receive intensive feedback on their work in progress from mentors during the workshop and will have time to meet and discuss informally with journal editors and mentors. Confirmed participants include Stephen Brammer, Robert Caruana, Charles Cho, Andrew Crane, Giana Eckhardt, Marianna Fotaki, Sarah Glozer, Jean-Pascal Gond, Johanne Grosvold, Andrew Hoffman, Jennifer Howard-Grenville, Dima Jamali, Pierre McDonagh, Andrea Prothero, Deirdre Shaw, Stephen Pavelin, Jonatan Pinkse, Juliane Reinecke, and Vivek Soundararajan.

The workshop will include the following:
