Strategy Process Workshop

Co-sponsored by the Research Methods Community

Saturday, September 20th
12:00 - 16:00

The Strategy Process Interest Group (IG) is pleased to offer a Process of Publishing Process Research Workshop: Journeying Along the (sometimes bumpy but ultimately successful) Paths to Publication in Madrid, Spain, from 12:00 to 16:00 on September 20, 2014. The workshop is organized by the Strategy Process Interest Group as part of the pre-conference program for the Strategic Management Society (SMS) Annual International Conference and is open to all conference registrants.

The objective of this workshop is to offer an interactive session that provides insights that engage scholars throughout SMS who are (or may be) interested in publishing rigorous and impactful process research.

The workshop starts with lunch, which includes networking and an overview of the goals of the afternoon. We will divide by areas of interest, and participants will have the opportunity to present their current work on process research in breakout sessions, providing them the opportunity to get feedback from seminal authors and current and former editors of journals such as AMR, JMS, SMJ, SEJ, and JBV.

Next, we will have three sequential panels, consisting of both editors (SMJ, SEJ, JBV) and authors of recently published process papers that represent a variety of content areas and methodologies. For each panel, the author will briefly walk through his or her journey from submission to acceptance. The editor will share his perspective on the process from ‘the other side,’ as well as reflect on how this paper is distinctive or similar to others they know based on their considerable editorial and publishing experience.

Workshop Registration:

We welcome all SMS members. To facilitate planning, please pre-register by sending an email to or by September 15, 2014. Please include a short CV (maximum one page) that provides a description of your research interests. Regarding the author/editor panels, participants will be provided access to the names of the published papers, copies of the original submissions and the correspondence between the editors, reviewers and authors.
