CFP and PDWs: Special Issue, Journal of Business Ethics, on “Historic Corporate Social Responsibility”

The guest editors of the Journal of Business Ethics special issue on "Historic Corporate Social Responsibility: Its Extent, Limits, and Consequences" will arrange paper development workshops at several upcoming conferences: Academy of Management (10-14 August in Chicago), International Association for Business & Society (7-10 June in Hong Kong), and European Business History Association (6-8 September in Ancona, Italy).
    During the workshops, authors will present and discuss their papers and receive feedback from discussants and peers. Attendance at these workshops is NOT a precondition for submission to the Journal of Business Ethics Special Issue. Confirmed discussants at the Academy of Management in Chicago include Stephanie Decker (Aston Business School), Gabrielle Durepos (Mount Saint Vincent University), Paul C. Godfrey (Brigham Young University), Stefan Hielscher (University of Bath), Michael Rowlinson (University of Exeter), Sébastien Mena (Cass Business School), and Roy R. Suddaby (University of Victoria and Newcastle University).
    Scholars interested in one of the workshops are asked to contact the guest editors according to requirements for each conference. Please see the following for the key dates and contact information.
  • IABS conference: Elevator pitch format. Interested authors might wish to contact Rob Phillips (rphillips@schulich.yorku.ca) prior to the conference.
  • AoM conference and EBHA conference: To be considered for a PDW at either AoM or EBHA, an abstract (no more than 2,000 words or 8 pages in all) should be submitted to the responsible guest editor (Judith Schrempf-Stirling judith.schrempf-stirling@unige.ch for AoM; Christian Stutz Christian.stutz@fh-hwz.ch for EBHA). The guest editors will then select promising abstracts and notify the authors. After acceptance, the authors are asked to submit a full paper (8,000-10,000 words).  
  • For the AoM, the deadline is May 15, 2018 (extended deadline), with submission of full paper by July 1, 2018. For the EBHA, the deadline is June 17, 2018, with submission of full paper by August 1, 2018.
