An important element of our job as academics is to produce scholarship that extends knowledge and tests the practical significance of our work and to translate and disseminate this knowledge we create to the rest of the world. ACBSP supports this work through the publication of a scholarly journal and sessions at conferences.
The Scholar-Practitioner Publications Committee recognizes the need for teaching suggested practices when publishing scholarly contributions. A three hour pre-conference workshop will be held prior to the ACBSP Conference and will be geared toward:
Submitting a Manuscript
Because this workshop is designed to assist authors and doctoral candidates in preparing their business/management education and learning manuscripts and/or dissertations for publication, it is recommended (but not required) that participants submit a manuscript. This can be in any stage of completion, but must have sufficient content for review and comment. A manuscript that was submitted but not accepted may be submitted since the manuscript title will not appear in a publication. Similar manuscripts will be grouped together and each submitted work will be reviewed prior to the workshop. The journal managing editor and an experienced researcher will review each manuscript, provide feedback to participants, and will facilitate a discussion of all participants’ manuscripts. Participants are encouraged to email their manuscript by May 15, 2015 for review to maximize their session experience.
We invite volunteer reviewers to become mentors to review research and dissertations prior to this pre-conference workshop and provide feedback for their protégés. Reviewers/Mentors will be required to register for the Conference and be available during the last hour of the workshop and the lunch that immediately follows to provide feedback to their colleagues and doctoral candidates.
Certificate of Completion
Certificates of completion will be provided to those who pre-register and attend the entire training. Reviewers/mentors registered for the ACBSP conference will receive a certificate for providing this valuable mentorship and be listed as a conference presenter for this training program.
Registration is available to anyone already registered for the ACBSP Annual Conference for a fee of $75.
