As space is limited, preference will be given first to those whose extended abstracts are being discussed in the roundtables. Additional spots will be allocated on the basis of first come, first served.

  • Those who wish to have their paper ideas discussed should submit an extended abstract (between 5 and 10 pages of text) by *6-January 2020*
  • The abstract should provide a synopsis of the research question, its relevance and significance, a statement relating to the limited ability of extant concepts and/or theory to provide a coherent response to that question, the empirical approach, and the implications of the findings for future theorizing.
  • Extended abstracts should be about 5 – 10 pages, double spaced, excluding tables, figures and references.
  • Those who wish to participate in the workshop without submitting a paper for review and discussion need only register (Select “Attending without submitting an abstract” on the form).
  • Paper feedback sessions are open to all, but discussions will revolve around papers submitted and accepted for discussion at the workshop.

Submission Deadline: 6-JANUARY 2020.

Register and submit your extended abstract

 

Please note: Papers that are accepted to and developed through the workshop does not guarantee acceptance and publication in the AMD SI. These papers will need to go through the same peer review process as any AMD submission. However, it is our hope that the workshop experience will provide attendees with substantive feedback to improve their work.

Professor Balmer reaches milestone with 200,000 reads on Researchgate

Last month, a milestone was reached when Professor Balmer learned that there had been over 200, 000 reads of his work on ResearchGate. ResearchGate is a social networking platform for research professionals, where members can share their papers, read other researchers’ papers, ask and answer questions, or find research collaborators.

Commenting on the above, Professor Balmer remarked:

“What is so uplifting about this news is to learn that there is interest in my published work from students, scholars and colleagues and its uplifting to discover that published work is being read.”

 

Research impact is a key measure of success of an academic’s work, and we are delighted to see that Professor Balmer’s publications generate so much interest among other scholars. Congratulations, Professor Balmer.
