    The Journal of Management Studies and Florida International University invite you to attend their face-to-face Publishing Workshop. The workshop will feature JMS editors and be led by JMS Associate Editor Gideon Markman (Colorado State University).

    • The secrets behind organizing an impactful Special Issue

    This part of the workshop is limited to 100 participants. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no registration fee.

    Day 2 (18 February 2023): This workshop will invite participants to present their papers and engage in a Q&A and feedback session. Participants will also be given the opportunity to sit with a JMS Editor to discuss their work and receive detailed feedback in a similar form to an R&R process.

    Participation in this part of the workshop is also free, but the capacity is limited to 50 participants. Attendees will be selected on the basis of their application.
