Journal of Business Ethics SI Paper Development Workshop
7th May 2021 (online event)
Submission Deadline: 23rd April 2021
We are inviting submissions for a paper development workshop related to a special issue
in Journal of Business Ethics on the topic of “Ethical Consumerism in Emerging Markets:
Opportunities and Challenges” (the CFP can be accessed at
Aims and scope
The workshop aims to provide interested authors with practical and developmental feedback
aimed at strengthening and improving their work (early stage, work in progress), based on
feedback from the special issue editors and other workshop participants. We aim to create a
constructive atmosphere in which we bring together researchers interested in topics related to
ethical consumerism in emerging markets (see details in the CFP). Authors will be asked to
virtually present their work in progress, and participants will be asked to engage in
discussions around the presentations as well as offer constructive feedback to help authors
refine their work. While participation in the workshop is not a requirement for submission to
the special issue, it is highly recommended.
Date and time of the workshop
The virtual paper development workshop will take place on 7th May 2021, between 10:00
AM and 5:30 PM GMT, and will be organized using an online platform.
We invite interested scholars to submit an extended abstract, which must be within the scope
of the CFP. Extended abstracts must not exceed 1,000 words, references excluded, and
should address the following points: (a) the phenomenon of interest and its theoretical and
managerial relevance (b) how existing literature fails to explain the phenomenon; intended
literature contributions, © methodology and findings (if appropriate), (d) theoretical and
managerial implications. We encourage authors to structure abstracts along these lines as to
best facilitate discussions.
