The "Organizational Trust" Paper Development Workshop (PDW) is a pre-Colloquium activity that aims to help advanced PhD students and early-career academics develop their research ideas and papers towards publishable articles in close interaction with leading scholars in the field.


The workshop is targeted to improving participants' skills in conducting high quality research and getting their work published in top-tier journals.

Each accepted paper will be briefly presented and then discussed in a very constructive and supportive manner.

All participants will be expected to have read the papers of their fellow session presenters and be ready to contribute to these discussions. Participants will also be expected to attend all sessions of the workshop.

The workshop will take place on Wednesday, July 2, 2014, 10:00am–14:00pm.



Interested scholars should submit – via the EGOS website! – a single document of application that includes:

  • On the first page: a short letter of application containing full details of name, address (postal address, phone and email), affiliation (date of PhD completion for early career scholars), a statement of why the applicant considers it valuable to attend this PDW as well as an indication of what journal(s) the paper is likely to be submitted to.
  • A full draft paper that is to be developed to a publishable stage.
