    Call for Manuscript Submissions 

    Virtual AOM SIM Research Development Workshop  


    July 29th – August 4th  



    We hope that you and your families are keeping healthy and safe. Although Academy is not in-person this year, we are excited to be holding this workshop virtually.  Do you have a draft paper in the Social Issues in Management (SIM) field that would benefit from an in-depth developmental review by a leading scholar in the subject?  If so, please upload your full paper here by 11 June. 


    The SIM Research Development Workshop brings together SIM researchers to improve manuscripts prior to their submission to high quality management journals.  The purpose of the session is to exchange ideas and get feedback, in a collaborative fashion. You'll get to share your work with a more experienced scholar and build your network, to boot.  


    Our mentoring team includes top scholars with successful track records in publishing ethics, corporate responsibility, stakeholder and related work in leading management and ethics journals. They are current and former editors, associate editors, editorial advisory board members, and experienced reviewers for top journals.  


    This year we are fortunate to have a fantastic pool of mentors to achieve these goals including Sandra Waddock, Stephen Brammer, Mike Barnett, Irene Henrique, Heather Elms, Colin Higgins, Kathleen Rehbein, Thomas Roulet, Laura Spence, Harry van Buren, and many more! 


    Please note: We will do our best to select mentors that have expertise on your topic, but we cannot guarantee you will all be assigned to the mentors you want.  


    We will pair you with these experienced scholars to explore how your manuscript-in-progress might be refined to achieve publication in your target journal(s). The best part is that you get to discuss your work with them face-to-face, with time to explain and clarify different points before you commit to the rigors of a blind review.  


    Acceptance to the Research Development Workshop is competitive. Applicants should submit their papers to the organizers by 11 June (you can submit here).  We will then select the best submissions and notify those accepted by 5 July. Once a paper is accepted, we will assign it to one or two mentors who will have comments ready for feedback and discussion in a virtual session you will arrange during the dates of AOM.  


    We are looking for works-in-progress. Applicants' submissions should range from 20 to 40 pages in length, including references, tables, figures, and so forth. You may send a paper that is being presented at the AOM or another conference but not a manuscript that is currently under review for a journal. Manuscripts should be submitted as Word documents (not PDF files) and should NOT be anonymous.  


    Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Annie Snelson-Powell at


    Best regards, 


    Annie Snelson-Powell (University of Bath), Chair, SIM Research Committee
