Description:Around the world we find researchers engaged in exciting, innovative, and relevant research projects. Unfortunately, many of these geographically diverse researchers face significant obstacles that prevent them from publishing in leading, high-impact journals and reaching a broad audience. This PDW is targeted to help scholars from under-represented countries who seek successful publication of their research in top scholarly journals. The PDW has a very practical, hands-on orientation.
The PDW consists of three highly interactive sessions, which complement each other.
Paper Development Session: In this session, registered participants will receive feedback on their submitted manuscripts from facilitators, along with suggestions on how to successfully publish them.Editor Panel: Current and former journal editors share their insights from handling manuscripts originating in different countries, and discuss important issues such as how to frame research projects for publication, the distinct requirements of different outlets, and how to overcome language difficulties. All panelists have served on multiple editorial boards.Global Scholars Panel: Well-published scholars from around the world share their successes and challenges and provide their experiences with the review process.Throughout the PDW, ongoing dialogue will address different types of research articles (quantitative, qualitative, theoretical, etc.), taking into consideration the research traditions of scholars from different parts of the world.Editor's Panel:

Scholarships:To encourage participation from under-represented countries in the academy, the STR Division will offer need-based financial support. A limited number of vouchers will be available to cover the conference registration fee for those that cannot cover it through their university or other sources (first-time conference attendees will be given priority). You can apply for the funding by submitting a letter with your application, explaining the need for financial support. Financial support will be offered on the basis of: (a) quality and promise of the manuscripts, and (b) demonstrated need, both to be determined solely by the STR Division. Scholars admitted to the PDW are encouraged to seek additional "matching" funding from other sources. The PDW organizers will arrange recommendation letters, if needed, to secure these additional funds.
