    Publishing Sustainability Research in SIM Journals (PDW 14459): Friday, Aug 9 2024 8:00AM at Marriott in Salon B 

    Interested scholars are invited to pre-register with the following survey link: https://copenhagenbusiness.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3qNk4OmOzZF4qXk

    Submissions of sustainability research to SIM journals are growing. While many authors expect that these fit well in SIM journals, they often find their papers (desk) rejected due to a "lack of fit with the journal". In the absence of clear guidance on how sustainability scholars can frame their research in a way that is relevant for SIM scholars, some sustainability researchers may withdraw and look for outlets elsewhere. While this might be the right approach in some cases, as the SIM community we risk, however, to miss out on rich data sets that if analyzed appropriately would offer much to business ethics research. In order to help attract a more diverse and interdisciplinary audience to the SIM community, this PDW invites (associate) editors from several leading SIM journals to share what they expect from sustainability research submitted to their journals. They will outline what their criteria are and how sustainability scholars can best speak towards an audience of business ethics scholars and social issue in management researchers. The panel of editors will share practice examples of why papers are (desk) rejected and more importantly they will outline how sustainability scholars can craft a SIM contribution in their sustainability papers. They will point at helpful editorials, answer questions from the audience, and give feedback on exemplary papers during the roundtable phase. The session will include panelists from: Business and Society, Business Ethics Quarterly, Business Ethics, the Environment & Responsibility, and the Journal of Business Ethics.

    We do encourage pre-registration. However, pre-registration is not required, and walk-ins are explicitly encouraged. However, should space in the room be limited, preference will be given to participants who have pre-registered. Moreover, pre-registration is required if you want to receive feedback on one of your paper ideas. As part of the pre-registration participants can submit questions to the panel as well as a paper idea that they would like to discuss with one of the panelists during the roundtable phase. Each editor will select 2-3 paper ideas to receive feedback that they feel are good case examples of illustrating the topics discussed in the PDW.
