    Manuscripts receive a rejection decision from editors for various reasons at different stages of the peer review process. The social and psychological consequences authors face after a manuscript rejection affect their well-being significantly. This professional development workshop (PDW) aims to engage scholars – from advanced doctoral students to research active scholars – in a dialogue on rejection as an editorial decision and its effects on well-being. We realize this purpose by (1) destigmatizing failure and educating the scholars on the nature of rejection decisions, (2) discussing how authors can bounce back after a rejection outcome, and (3) explaining the well-being consequences of rejection and providing recommendations on developing resilience. Editors from journals, namely, Journal of Management, Journal of Business Venturing, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, International Small Business Journal, Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship and Journal of Small Business Management have agreed to serve as panel members and mentors in this session.
