The aim of this seminar as part of the centre for Research on Entrepreneurship, Innovation Management and Internationalism (REIMI) research seminar series is to facilitate knowledge exchange on publishing in top journals.

Seminar abstract

While most business and management academics appreciate the importance of getting published in top journals, relatively few actually manage to do so and even fewer manage to do it repeatedly over time. Even in instances where an author has managed to “get a foot in the door” (i.e. received an R & R decision), the final outcome is often negative.

Although several factors are responsible for such “failures”, a key reason seems to be lack of sufficient understanding of how such journals actually “tick” and how to effectively deal with a highly demanding review process.

Drawing on 35+ years of personal experience as an author, editor, editorial review board member and reviewer, this presentation seeks to offer some insights into;

  • (a) the context within which a review of a submitted paper typically takes place,
  • (b) the nature and demands of the reviewing process,
  • (c) things to do (or not to do) to maximize the chances of a successful outcome.

The talk is particularly targeted to young scholars and doctoral students interested in an academic career but also to more experienced researchers seeking to strengthen their publication portfolio and enhance their visibility and reputation.
