Publishing in academic journals can seem daunting. Particularly for new PhD students, sitting down to write a 30-40 page paper can be confusing without guidance on where or even how to start. And to make matters worse, after months of effort your cherished final manuscript can then be met with a firm “reject” from journals. My talk describes tips and tricks intended to make this writing process easier and, ideally, more likely to lead to a publishable paper. In particular, I will cover a “fill-in-the-blanks” article structure used by most management journals that, once known, simplifies the writing process considerably. I will then cover some of the more effective ways to fill in those blanks (i.e., how to frame the contributions of your article), as well as general approaches for dealing with reviewer comments.
