    Junior Faculty Paper Development Workshop

    STR Division

    Saturday, August 10th, 2019

    10:15AM – 12.45PM, Boston Park Plaza, Statler

    (tentative location, please check in early August)


    Do you have a great paper that seems to be going nowhere? A paper that has been rejected from a journal or two, and you're not sure whether, and how, to proceed? Or a paper that has received contradictory reviews to which you're struggling to respond? Do you have a great empirical result but aren't sure if the theoretical contribution is sufficient for an A-level publication, or what other journals you should be considering? Do you feel your paper could really use some guidance from senior, more experienced faculty?


    If you answered YES to any of these questions, this PDW is for you!


    Now in its seventh year, the Junior Faculty Paper Development Workshop offers junior scholars a unique opportunity to receive developmental feedback on their current research projects. Specifically, it enables junior faculty who are struggling with papers in an advanced stage to engage in an in-depth discussion with experienced researchers who will read their work and offer guidance on how, and whether, to proceed.


    As a junior researcher, you will be asked to submit the paper together with some supplementary material before-hand. The organizers will assign your paper to one or two experienced researchers, who will provide you with personalized feedback during the session through a one-to-one discussion.
