Full papers include empirical research papers, conceptual and theoretical papers, editorials and viewpoints, practice and white papers, case studies, and review papers. At least one author must register for and attend the conference to present the paper in a session, or the paper will be removed from the program. While it is understood that the vast majority of conference submissions are "working papers," manuscripts that appear incomplete will be moved from the full paper track to the developmental paper track (see below). Accepted full papers will be given the opportunity to:
Texas A&M University-San Antonio email@example.com
Justin Wareham Oklahoma City University firstname.lastname@example.org
University of Wisconsin-Green Bay email@example.com
Shiang-Lih Chen McCain Colorado Mesa University firstname.lastname@example.org
University of New Haven email@example.com
Southeastern Oklahoma State University firstname.lastname@example.org
University of Houston-Downtown email@example.com
Fort Hays State University firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: All tracks require in-person presentation and there is no virtual option, except the Spanish-language track, which is virtual only and there is no in-person option. Authors presenting in the Spanish-language track and another track should expect to attend the conference and present the Spanish-language paper virtually.
Many scholars attend SWAM each year to showcase their research early in its development. They do so to find suitable collaborators and coauthors, get valuable feedback from their peers, and gain insights into their research questions. Developmental papers can be any style or track suitable for SWAM, as described above, and may include papers from abstract-only to nearly complete. Frequently, authors submit the "front end" of their paper, prior to completing data collection, in order to get feedback on appropriate methods and sources of data.
Each year, the SWAM Board actively seeks out high-impact panels, symposia, and workshops for attendees, including the doctoral consortium, deans panel, journal editors panel, and others. To enhance the value SWAM is able to deliver to members, panels, symposia, and workshops are selected from submissions by the Program Chair in coordination with Officers of the SWAM Board.
Panel: A panel discussion involves a group of experts providing insights on a topic of interest to SWAM members (i.e., management faculty). Attendees should leave a panel with a deeper understanding of a complex challenge or issue. A panel discussion should include three-to-five experts and a moderator, and conclude with a question-and-answer session. Example panels include the Deans Panel and the Journal Editors Panel.
Symposium: A symposium involves a collective of like-minded scholars coming together to build knowledge around a topic of interest to SWAM members. The coordinator of a symposium should utilize a Socratic (or similar) method of eliciting active discourse to advance thought around the topic. In many cases, symposia are built around nascent research streams and emergent ideas. Example symposia include Management Research in the Military and Increasing Management Faculty Diversity.
Workshop: A workshop involves a group of experts training the attendees on a topic of interest to SWAM members, which would generally be aimed at improving skill in teaching or research. Attendees should leave a workshop with new knowledge and skills that they can take back to their roles as faculty and/or higher-education administrators. Example workshops include Using R-studio to Conduct Structural Equation Modeling and Building Quantitative Reasoning Skills in Undergraduate Management Students.
