Workshop On Academic Writing By Prof. Pawan Budhwar & Prof. Payal Kumar

Workshop on

10th & 11th December 2018
AIMA, New Delhi





“Given a growing emphasis on high-visibility research in non-U.S. business schools, the Academy of Management Journal is now receiving more submissions from international authors than ever before. During research processes, experience with publishing in the Journal is often passed on through training and socialization with colleagues and scholars. In the absence of such experience, non-U.S. authors who aspire to publish in these pages are likely to find the “rules of the game” opaque, or at best, tacit. When authors face this opacity burden, their articles are more likely to be desk-rejected or rejected after review,” writes Prof Gerry George, former Editor of AMJ (George, 2012).

As an academic it is important to learn the nuances of publishing, from which journal to select in order to increase your chances of getting published, to writing skillfully as per academic writing norms. This workshop is of particular significance to faculty members and doctoral scholars given the increasing focus on Higher Education Institutions in India, and of UGC, on faculty publishing in relation to appointments and promotions.


This 2-day non-residential program targets doctoral scholars and faculty members in business management and allied disciplines who aim to publish in reputed journals.

The participants will be guided through lectures, discussions and practical exercises, to understand the art of publishing and to critically self-reflect.

  • Selecting an appropriate journal
  • Writing a good journal abstract
  • Writing a critical literature review (as opposed to a descriptive one)
  • How to bag grants for your research projects
