To foster the research climate within the school, the Research Dean’s Office set up a series of research brown bags. The purpose of these research brown bags is to highlight current cross-disciplinary research at Vlerick Business School and to create opportunities for sharing recent research insights. Through videoconferencing it is possible to follow the brown bags from Ghent, Leuven or Brussels. They can be attended, free of charge, by all people from Vlerick, parent universities or other academic institutions.
This seminar was chaired by Katleen De Stobbeleir and Jan Lepoutre and focused on "Getting an A* publication: Some Lessons learned and Experiences to Share".
Abstract: Although publishing in A* journals is becoming more important in our School, it is neither easy to accomplish, nor easy to find out how it works. To provide some guidance in the process for those interested aiming for A* journals in the future, or just in general to learn how the process works, Jan and Katleen shared their experience of publishing in the Academy of Management Journal:
- how do you respond to reviewers,
- what does a "letter to the editor" look like,
- what is the typical process,
- how much time does it take and what did we learn while talking to other people about this process?
