The editorial members of 4th IRC 2019-MY Chapter at Putra Business School, UPM Malaysia invite applications for the participation in its signature event, Paper Development Workshop to be held on December 19, 2019 at Main Hall, Putra Business School, UPM Malaysia.

The objective of this workshop is to discuss, revise and improve papers that authors intend to publish in high quality journals including indexed in ABCD, SSCI, ABS and Scopus. The workshop will provide early career faculty and research scholars with developmental feedback on publication of their current research projects in high impact journals. While we hope that many of these papers will be eventually submitted to indexed journals, the purpose of the PDW is broader: to improve the quality of research writing in a way that it impacts the academic community and policy makers.

We invite original papers from junior authors or junior faculty members who aspire to improve their papers to make those suitable for publication in quality journals.

Who should attend
Faculty members, doctoral and post-doctoral students who intend to develop their papers for either submission in the reputed journals. In particular, we hope to attract papers from scholars:

(1) who are located in universities in emerging economies or in universities that offer limited support for research writing or guide journal publication, and/or
(2) who have recently graduated PhD and now are aspiring to publish their PhD work and other current research projects in the areas of economics, business, social sciences and humanities in high quality and indexed journals.
