    CGIR Junior Scholar Consortium and
    Paper Development Workshop
    10th ICGS Annual Conference, Friday, November 8
    th, 2024

    The CGIR Doctoral Consortium and Paper Development Workshop (PDW) will be held on Friday November 8th, 2024 as part of the preconference program of the 10th ICGS annual conference, that will be held at Arizona State University, November 9th-10th, 2024. The event, sponsored by Wiley, is organized in close collaboration between ICGS and CGIR, and involves current and former CGIR Editors. Participating Editors include Michael Abebe (Texas), Ruth Aguilera (Northeastern), Lili Dai (UNSW), Omrane Guedhami (South Carolina), Niels Hermes (Groningen), Tanusree Jain (Copenhagen), Aneel Keswani (City), Elko Klijn (Old Dominion), Krista Lewellyn (Florida), Maria Marchica (Manchester) Andrea Melis (Cagliari), David Oesch (Zurich), Amedeo Pugliese (Padua), Bo Qin (Melbourne), Trond Randøy (Copenhagen), Peter Roosenboom (Erasmus), Eduardo Schiehll (Montreal), Konstantinos Stathopoulos (Manchester), Till Talaulicar (Erfurt), Alessandro Zattoni (LUISS), Liandong Zhang (Singapore) and Yuping Zhao (Houston), among others.


    ICGS and CGIR's mission is to improve the quality and relevance of international corporate governance (CG) research. The purpose of the consortium and PDW is to provide junior scholars with developmental feedback on their research papers in the field of CG. We are soliciting doctoral students and junior faculty members – from any discipline (e.g., accounting, finance, organization, strategy) and any country – to submit an original paper on CG.


    The consortium and PDW are divided into two parts. For the first part, CGIR Editors will meet individually with two authors at a mutually agreed time virtually or in person and provide feedback on how to improve their papers, so to increase the probability of acceptance by CGIR or other CG journals. For the second part, the CGIR Editors-in-Chief and Senior Editors will present the journal's mission and scope, the key statistics on submissions and acceptance rate, and the editorial review process. The second part will be held in person at Arizona State University. This will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the editorial team. At the end of the PDW, there will be the possibility to have informal conversations with the Editors-in-Chief, Editors and Editorial Board Members of CGIR so to learn the nuances of successful publication strategies.

    Application process

    Each applicant may submit only one paper, which may or may not also be scheduled to be presented later in the conference. Submitted papers must be less than 10,000 words in length, include an abstract, up to five keywords, and follow the CGIR author guidelines. Papers should be submitted via ConfTool at using Track G. Please indicate during your submission whether you plan on participating virtually or in person. The deadline for submissions is September 1st, 2024. Submitters will be notified whether they can participate in the event by September 10th, 2024 and are asked to confirm their participation by September 30th, 2024.
