AAOM/APJM Paper Develop Workshop and Mini-conference

Hosted by

International University of Japan

at Tokyo & Niigata, Japan

February 28-March 1, 2023


Asia Academy of Management (AAOM) and Asia Pacific Journal of Management (APJM) will conduct a paper development workshop (PDW) on February 28, 2023, in Tokyo followed by a mini-conference titled Managing Challenges in the Asia Pacific on March 1, 2023, in Niigata at International University of Japan (IUJ), Japan. The organizing committee consists of Li-Qun WEI (Editor-in-Chief of APJM), Yingying Zhang Zhang (Professor, Graduate School of International Management) and Maoliang BU (Senior Editor, APJM). Other panellists of PDW will include senior editors of APJM as well as other leading scholars. The purpose of the PDW is to provide feedback to junior scholars and doctoral students on their research projects that are in the advanced stage of development. Consistent with the mission of the Asia Academy of Management, our objective is to encourage scholars to do quality research on issues that are of relevance to Asia. While we certainly hope that the authors will develop their work and submit it to APJM, there is no obligation to do so. We encourage authors to submit their original work under two categories - full-length papers and idea papers. Full-length papers should not be more than 10,000 words in length, while proposals or paper ideas should not be more than 2500 words in length. You can submit the papers that you have previously submitted to APJM or other journals to get development feedback during the PDW. The space is limited to 20 papers.
