Getting published in high impact journals: Writing and targeting strategies for doctoral students

Writing for academic journals is highly competitive. Even if you overcome the first hurdle and generate a valuable idea or piece of research – how do you then sum it up and write it in a way that will capture the interest of reviewers? This workshop will present suggestions on 1. identifying journals best suited for publishing your research, 2. writing for particular journals, 3. handling reviews, and 4. developing a sustainable writing practice. The workshop will enable you to experiment with writing, reviewing, and to reflect on the kind of writing practices that may work best for you. Throughout the interactive session, the presenters will share their experience and advice, as well as answering the questions you may have.

Catherine Demangeot

Catherine Demangeot is Associate Professor in Marketing at IÉSEG School of Management in Paris, where she is also the co-ordinator of one of its centres of excellence, ICIE (IÉSEG Center for Intercultural Engagement). Her main research interests lie in understanding how people interact with their environments – physical, virtual or (multi-)cultural, and in the strategies that emerge, over time, from these interactions. More specifically, she is interested in discovering and studying the behaviours and strategies that facilitate consumer coping and empowerment and the conditions that enable multicultural conviviality. Her current projects include work on multicultural environments (conceptualising organisational multicultural competence, consumer multicultural adaptiveness); and virtual environments (consumer participation and collective knowledge creation in virtual communities). She is particularly interested in discovering and studying the behaviours and strategies that facilitate consumer coping and empowerment and some of her research is within the transformative consumer research stream.

Her research has been published in the Journal of Public Policy & Marketing, the Journal of Business Research, Psychology & Marketing, Consumption, Markets & Culture, Marketing Theory, and other international publications.

Prior to academia, Catherine had a ‘first life’ in book publishing in London and Dubai, where she lived for 23 years. During her tenure at Strathclyde University, she taught executive MBA students in 10 locations in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Her teaching leverages the multiple cultural perspectives present in all her marketing classes.

Panel Discussion: Publish or perish? Exploring new paradigms for impactful research  

Reseach policies in various contries highlight the importance of wider impact of research. Impact, which can be defined as « an effect on, change or benefit to the economy, society, culture, public policy or services, health, the environment or quality of life, beyond academia » (Research Excellence Framework, UK) has become increasingly important in setting research directions and providing support. This panel of experts composed of professors from different universities will discuss this controversial topic and illustrate different approaches on how their research impacts organisations and what strategies they apply to receive attention from practitioners.
