This Publishing Workshop aims to help researchers to transform their submitted and presented papers for the upcoming EurOMA '11 conference into journal-level submissions. We welcome in particular non-native English-speaking Faculty (doctoral students are welcome in EIASM’s Doctoral Education Network - EDEN) in the field of Operations Management (OM), who wish to increase the quality of their publications in recognised international academic journals.
Target journals are:
• International Journal of Operations and Production Management (IJOPM)
(Other journals may be added to the list.)
The following members of the Editorial Team will act as Discussants for the papers submitted to the Workshop:
- Steve Brown, University of Exeter, Editor of IJOPM
Academics are judged on their ability to produce research papers appearing in good-quality international journal articles. These publications are also the basis of Business School and University prestige and success.
Organisations, such as the British Academy of Management or other associations managed by EIASM, have sought recently to support publishing activity by organising journal publishing workshops – either to encourage young researchers to publish for the first time, or to help seasoned researchers move up the publishing ladder. These workshops have been highly successful, to the extent that it is now possible to envisage a more specific targeting of researchers, both in terms of discipline and in terms of language focus.
It has been recognised for some time that the EurOMA conference presents an ideal opportunity for increasing participation by researchers for whom English is not a first language. Many such researchers either face a perceived language barrier or have limited access into Anglo-Saxon OM research networks. To our knowledge, there has been no specific workshop organised in Europe to foster publications in OM. Moreover, no workshop has targeted non-native English-speaking researchers in order to facilitate their participation to these international networks.
