The event “Publishing in Business and Management: Insights from the Editors” is designed to support scholars and practitioners by creating a space for discussion and reflection on submitting articles in peer reviewed journals. This will be an opportunity to meet the editors of highly ranked peer reviewed journals in Business and Management. The event will focus on the publishing process and what editors and reviewers of journals are looking for in the articles they accept. Stephanie and Laura will provide more insight on the process of publishing high quality research, selecting appropriate channels, common grounds for rejection and strategies for learning from academic journal rejections.
