Call for Papers for SBEJ 2nd Online Conference for Early Career Researchers
Friday 15th December 2023, 1pm (London time), 2 hours duration
An opportunity to discover interesting new research, and SBEJ editors’ feedback thereupon. The goals are to engage with the community of entrepreneurship scholars; discuss emerging topics, issues and priorities; share tacit knowledge; and give feedback to young researchers in the spirit of a paper development workshop (but this is not a job market networking event).
Topics should be broadly aligned with the main research areas of ‘Small Business Economics’: Entrepreneurship and the economics of small business; new venture creation; self-employment; family firms; small and medium-sized enterprises; innovative startups; entrepreneurial finance; and so on.
- Attendance is open to presenters and non-presenters
- Presenters must be Early Career Researchers: PhD students, post-docs, or junior faculty
- Presenters get ~ 12 minutes each: 10 mins to present, 2 mins Q&A/discussion (mainly Q, no A)
- SBEJ editors give feedback via mic or chat, non-presenters give feedback via chat (& perhaps mic)
- The Zoom chat window log file will be distributed afterwards
- The event is expected to last for 2 hours, with a minimum 3-5 SBEJ editors attending at any time
- Send an extended abstract (Times New Roman 11-point or similar, strict limit of maximum 3 pages PDF all included; 1 submission per person) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 12th November
- Decisions communicated to authors by Sunday 26th November
- Submitted abstracts may be rejected without a detailed justification
- We expect 9 paper presentations
- Abstracts should ideally already include some results, and connect well to SBEJ topics
- We are not interested in submissions already at the R&R stage at any journal (including SBEJ)
- Presenters must give live presentations (not pre-recorded videos) and ideally attend the whole event
- There is no guarantee that presented papers will receive a favourable response from SBEJ if submitted to SBEJ, even if the comments raised by SBEJ editors are addressed
