    Following previous successful events held in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, we are very pleased to be able to announce that the eighth annual paper development workshop on organisational and institutional change will take place on March 1, 2021. This workshop has been generously supported by Organization Studies, the Organization Development & Change Division of AOM, and the University of Edinburgh's Centre for Strategic Leadership. As previously, this workshop offers an opportunity for scholars to develop their ongoing work related to organisational or institutional change. The workshop will be developmental with each paper having as a discussant a senior scholar with a track record of multiple publications in, and editorial/editorial board appointments with, our leading journals.

    Confirmed discussants will be John Amis (University of Edinburgh), Paula Jarzabkowski (City, University of London), Candace Jones (University of Edinburgh), Martin Kornberger (University of Edinburgh), Johanna Mair (Hertie School of Governance & Stanford University), Daniel Muzio (University of York), (Renate Meyer (WU Vienna & Copenhagen Business School), Davide Ravasi (University College London), and Paul Tracey (University of Cambridge & University of Melbourne).

    There will be a plenary session led by Professor Renate Meyer, Editor at Organization Studies, devoted to improving understanding of how to publish in leading journals in general and Organization Studies in particular.

    Authors will also receive feedback from peers with similar research interests. It should be of special interest for colleagues recently graduated with a Ph.D., and doctoral students with quite well developed manuscripts; scholars more advanced in their careers are also welcome to attend. Selection of papers will be based on an abstract of 500 words. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 11.59pm, January 17, 2021. Full paper drafts will be required by 11.59pm, February 20, 2021.

    Logistics and Support to Participants

    The workshop will be held entirely online. It will consist of around 50 doctoral students, early career faculty and senior colleagues who will discuss papers and offer developmental advice. The atmosphere will be collegial and informal, but centred on progressing working papers with the objective of getting them published in leading journals.

    There is no conference fee. Participants are expected to attend for the whole day though given the online format, there will be regular breaks. A detailed schedule will be shared with you in due course but please plan to be available between 9am and 4pm Greenwich Mean Time.
