11th EurOMA Publishing Workshop

The EurOMA Journal Publishing Workshop aims to help researchers to transform their submitted papers into journal-level submissions. We welcome researchers in the field of Operations Management (OM), who wish to increase the quality of their publications in recognised international academic journals.

Academics are judged on their ability to produce research papers appearing in good quality international journals which are also the basis of Business School and University prestige and success.
Papers brought to the workshop are typically targeted, but not exclusively, at the following journals:
- International Journal of Operations and Production Management (IJOPM)
- Journal of Operations Management (JOM)
- Decision Sciences Journal (DSJ)
- Journal of Product Innovation Management (JPIM)
- Production Planning and Control (PPC)
- Journal of Service Research (JSR)
- Supply Chain Management an International Journal (SCM)   
The team acting as tutors and discussants for the papers submitted to the Workshop will be: 
- Cipriano Forza, Università di Padova, Associate Editor of JOM and DSJ
- Cristina Gimenez, ESADE Business School, Co-Editor IJOPM
- Chris Voss, London Business School and Warwick Business School, Editorial Board member of JPIM, IJOPM and JSR. Associate Editor Journal of Service Research 
- Juliana Hsuan, Copenhagen Business School, Associate Editor IJOPM and Associate Editor DSJ
The Publishing Workshop has two specific objectives:
- Publishing process. Through plenary sessions with members of the editorial board of OM journals, the participants will be briefed on the editorial policy, publication process, strategies for submission, writing and responding to reviews, resubmission process, etc.
- Co-creation to improve the paper. Each paper will be allocated to a journal editorial board member as discussant, who will comment on the content and clarity of presentation of the ideas. The discussions will take place in small group sessions, during which other workshop participants in addition to the discussant will critique the papers and provide suggestions for further development to bring the paper up to publication standards. The process of critiquing other papers will be an important part of the learning process.  

Applications are welcome from researchers in all research areas of Operations Management. Workshop applicants are required to submit an extended abstract, and prior to participation, a full paper. The abstract should follow the guidelines of the EurOMA conference:
- Abstracts are limited to 1000 words (including title, keywords, topic(s), word count, main subject text, tables, figures and references). An abstract exceeding the specified limit may not be included in the review process. Please specify the word count on the abstract.
