    Call for Papers

    IABS Business & Society European Paper Development Workshop Series


    Do you have work in progress that would benefit from expert feedback from senior scholars?

    Are you looking to publish business and society research in top journals?


    Business & Society (IF 3.214), the official journal of IABS, the International Association of Business and Society, is holding a series of five paper development workshops across Europe in 2018/19 to help scholars develop their work for publication. The workshops will take place in Belgium, Italy, UK, France and Spain. We would like to kindly invite you to participate in the fifth of these workshops on 21 June, 2019 in Barcelona, Spain, organized by ESADE Business School on its Pedralbes Campus.


    Participants to the workshop will benefit from hearing insight and guidance from editors and editorial board members of Business & Society about publishing in top journals, and what it takes to publish in Business & Society.


    They will also receive intensive feedback on their work in progress from senior scholars who will act as mentors for participants during the workshop. Confirmed mentors include scholars and Business & Society editorial team members Andrew Crane, Daniel Arenas, Itziar Castelló, Tobias Hahn, and Laura Illia, who between them have published in Academy of Management Review, Business & Society, Ecological Economics, Journal of Management Studies, Organization Studies, and more.


    The workshop will cover the following topics (a detailed program will follow):

    • Success factors to realize a contribution in Business & Society and other top journals
    • How to craft an introduction and outline a theoretical contribution
    • Paper feedback in small groups, with at least one senior scholar as a mentor in each group
    • Lunch with mentors

    With this call for papers, we would like to encourage you to apply to the workshop by submitting your work in progress. We welcome the submission of both empirical papers (quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods) and purely theoretical work.

    Deadline: 17 May 2019, 5pm. Submit your work in progress (either a long abstract of 3000 words or a full paper, maximum 8000 words) to Obaid Amjad (

    Please note that places are limited and papers will be selected based on the quality of the manuscripts, with priority given to scholars based in Spain.


    Notifications of acceptance will be sent within two weeks after the deadline.


    We are looking forward to meeting you in Barcelona!
