    Do you have an idea for an AMR paper that you want to develop? Do you want help to work on an idea that will be the foundation for a well-crafted manuscript suitable for submission to AMR?


    If so, then this workshop might be for you:


    Academy of Management Review (AMR) Idea Development Workshop


    Hosted by the Management & Entrepreneurship Department

    Haslam College of Business, University of Tennessee – Knoxville

    Where and When

    Friday, April 21, 2023 from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at the Haslam College of Business, with a reception and dinner for all participants

    Led by:

    • Sherry Thatcher, Editor-in-Chief
    • Other Associate Editors and Editorial Review Board members


    Purpose and Agenda

    This idea development workshop (IDW) is geared toward early career researchers (e.g., Assistant Professors and Postdoctoral fellows) and PhD students who are interested in publishing in AMR. AMR is the highest-ranked journal publishing conceptual and theoretical manuscripts. Although this IDW is open to anyone, preference will be shown to individuals from institutions based in the United States. This workshop is designed to help participants develop great ideas that will be the foundation for well-crafted manuscripts suitable for submission to AMR.


    The workshop will consist of two parts. We will first discuss general information about publishing in AMR, such as what makes a successful AMR paper, the main reasons that papers are rejected, and strategies for addressing the core challenges that Editors and reviewers see in rejected papers.

    The second half of the workshop will entail roundtable discussions of theory ideas from the participants. We will match 4-5 participants with an Associate Editor or an Editorial Review Board member. These groups will discuss the participant ideas and provide the participant with insight into how to clarify the paper idea or move the idea forward. Participation in this part of the workshop is limited to 40 participants.

    Registration information:

    Registration is required for all participants and the deadline to register is March 10, 2023. To participate, please fill out the following JotForm and submit a two-page proposal of your theoretical or conceptual idea:  https://form.jotform.com/223144034662145.
