While it is easy to come up with a rough or vague idea about a research topic, it is not easy to refine, implement, and publish the idea. Every one of us needs help from others and particularly from those who have successful publishing experience. However, many of us lack access to colleagues with relevant expertise or hesitate to ask for feedback from experts in relevant domains. Sometimes we are not even sure what kinds of expertise we would need to move the idea forward. In the OB Research Incubator, participants will be paired with renowned scholars who have successful publishing experience and can help participants move their ideas forward. Participants will also have an opportunity to connect with other OB scholars who share similar research interests. This PDW is open for any member of the OB Division who would like to seek and exchange advice or feedback on research projects that are in any stage prior to publishing. Prior to participation in this PDW, participants will need to submit a brief summary of their research idea by June 15, 2018 (5-6 pages in length, double spaced) to These briefs will be reviewed by the session organizers. Those whose briefs receive favorable evaluation will receive a registration code for the session. Complete details regarding the research brief will be made available on April 1, 2018.
Pre-registration is required for this session. To register online, please visit Please contact the workshop organizer to obtain the approval code. The deadline of the required paper submission is June 15, 2018.
