    JIBS Paper Development Workshop 

    Sponsored by Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) and Academy of International Business (AIB), Asia Pacific Chapter

    AIB Asia Pacific Chapter Conference 2022 Ningbo China

    Wednesday, 7th December 2022

    Submission deadline: Friday 30 September 2022

    The Journal of International Business Studies Paper Development Workshop (JIBSPDW) will be held on Wednesday 7th December 2022, as part of AIB Asia Pacific Conference 2022 at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (https://www.nottingham.edu.cn/en/business/).

    The JIBS-PDW is organized by Prof. Pingping Fu (Nottingham University Business School China, JIBS Editorial Review Board Member), and two Area Editors from the 2023-2025 JIBS Editorial Team (Prof. J.T. Li, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Prof. Xufei Ma, Tsinghua University). The purpose of the JIBS-PDW is to provide scholars with developmental feedback on their current research projects in International Business. Authors will be paired with senior International Business scholars for discussions on their papers (in-person or online).

    We invite original papers from doctoral students or faculty members who have not previously published in JIBS. We particularly encourage papers from scholars (1) who are located at universities that offer limited support for international business research, or (2) who are trained in disciplines less commonly associated with the field (e.g., human geography, political science, or economic history) but interested in conducting international business research. While we hope that many of these papers will eventually be submitted to JIBS, the aim of the PDW is more generally to heighten the quality of IB research, and bring new scholars into the IB field.

    To apply to the JIBS-PDW, you should go to https://meetings.aib.msu.edu/asiapacific/2022/  and click on “Manuscript Submission Form” and then next to Track, please select JIBS Paper Development Workshop. If you have any trouble making the submission, please contact Yuxue Luo via Yuxue.Luo@nottingham.edu.cn. The deadline for submissions is Friday September 30, 2022. Each applicant can submit only one paper to the JIBS-PDW, but you may submit the same version of the paper to another track for presentation at the conference. The paper submitted for consideration must not have been published in another publication. Papers must be less than 10,000 words in length. Your cover page should include all the author names, emails and affiliations.

    You will be notified about the acceptance of your submission by October 15th, and will need to confirm participation by October 30th, which is the early-bird registration deadline for the conference. All participants must be AIB members and register for the conference before they confirm their attendance at the JIBS-PDW.

    We’re looking forward to seeing you at the JIBS-PDW! Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about it.
