Title of the Early Scholars Workshop: "Publishing across Disciplinary Boundaries: Theoretical and Methodological Challenges".
Sponsored by: Society for the Advancement of Management Studies
Hosted by: University of Palermo, Department of Economics, Business and Statistics
Workshop Conveners: Pasquale Massimo Picone and Sonia Quarchioni (University of Palermo)
Faculty Members: Daniela Argento, Kristianstad University (Sweden); Gerardo Patriotta, University of Warwick (UK); Giuseppe Pedeliento, University of Bergamo (Italy)
Where and When: In-person workshop at the University of Palermo; 8-9 September 2022
Objectives: The workshop aims to provide early career researchers with the opportunity to elaborate on the benefits and controversies of publishing high-quality interdisciplinary studies. Over the last years, growing calls for more interdisciplinarity have proliferated hugely in management, organisation, marketing, and accounting research, which are traditionally intertwined areas in the business field due to their behavioural, social, and institutional dimensions. Young researchers are more and more encouraged to investigate issues at the interface between disciplinary traditions by integrating theoretical frameworks and methodological approaches from diverse disciplines within the business field and well beyond (e.g., psychology, sociology, and philosophy). This workshop has the purpose to:
- provide young researchers with guidance on how to conduct high-quality interdisciplinary research;
- discuss their early research proposals to help them publish in top journals.
Young researchers' proposals will be discussed with distinguished faculty members during parallel sessions of the workshop.
Target: The workshop is open to early career scholars (i.e., Ph.D. students in their final stage of the Ph.D. program and early career researchers). No workshop fees for participants. Applicants should send an email to email@example.com with a CV; a short letter of interest; and an extended abstract of the work to be presented in the workshop (min. 500 and max. 1,000 words).
Deadlines: Submission deadline: 5th July 2022; Notification of acceptance: 10th July 2022; Full paper submission: 1st September 2022.
