    Journal of Business Ethics SI Paper Development Workshop – for the SI on Ethical Consumerism in Emerging Markets: Opportunities & Challenges


    7th May 2021 (online event)

    We are inviting submissions for a paper development workshop related to a special issue in Journal of Business Ethics on the topic of “Ethical Consumerism in Emerging Markets: Opportunities and Challenges” (the CFP can be accessed at


    Aims and scope

    The workshop aims to provide interested authors with practical and developmental feedback aimed at strengthening and improving their work (early stage, work in progress), based on feedback from the special issue editors and other workshop participants. We aim to create a constructive atmosphere in which we bring together researchers interested in topics related to ethical consumerism in emerging markets (see details in the CFP). Authors will be asked to virtually present their work in progress, and participants will be asked to engage in discussions around the presentations as well as offer constructive feedback to help authors refine their work. While participation in the workshop is not a requirement for submission to the special issue, it is highly recommended.


    Date and time of the workshop

    The virtual paper development workshop will take place on 7th May 2021, between 10:00 AM and 5:30 PM GMT, and will be organized using an online platform.


    Submission requirements

    We invite interested scholars to submit an extended abstract, which must be within the scope of the CFP. Extended abstracts must not exceed 1,000 words, references excluded, and should address the following points: (a) the phenomenon of interest and its theoretical and managerial relevance (b) how existing literature fails to explain the phenomenon; intended literature contributions, (c) methodology and findings (if appropriate), (d) theoretical and managerial implications. We encourage authors to structure abstracts along these lines as to best facilitate discussions.


    Workshop submission, deadlines and acceptance

    The deadline for workshop submissions is 31st March 2021. All workshop submissions will be reviewed in advance.
