Publication Development Workshop

Thursday, August 25, 2016 - 10:00 to 13:00
Rye Hall Extension, Maynooth University

Publication development workshop with Professor Kathy Lund Dean (Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Peter, Minnesota) hosted by School of Business, Maynooth University and Professor Paul Hibbert (University of Saint Andrews, Edinburgh)

The scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) research domain has dramatically advanced over the last decade, bringing the Journal of Management Education (JME) to the forefront of SOTL journal outlets. JME, with an historical acceptance rate of between 12-15%, continues to serve the management education community’s scholarly needs. The OBTS Board and JME Editors recognized, however, an opportunity for a new double blind, peer-reviewed publication outlet that would serve management instructorsinteractivetimely, and community building ways.
Management Teaching Review (MTR) leverages interactive technology and the SAGE journal platform to allow for a new community of practice outlet complementing and offering authors an additional peer-reviewed choice for their management education work, serving a different but related audience. MTR publishes short (2000 word maximum), targeted, and immediately useful resources for management educators, trainers and coaches.
In this workshop, JME editor Kathy Lund-Dean and MTR editor Paul Hibbert will discuss details about the types of articles MTR seeks to publish, and how MTR differs from JME and other SOTL outlets. Bring your ideas and your work in progress!  After a brief introduction to both journals aims and scope, workshop participants will discuss their own ideas and current working papers with Kathy, Paul and other session participants. Workshop time will also include whole-group discussion and Q&A, ending with developmental suggestions for participants’ possible JME and MTR submissions.
There is no charge for the seminar and places are allocated on a first-come, first served basis.  The workshop is expected to fill-up quickly, so please book your place by emailing For more information please click here
