Reviewing in the Rough

It's the 13th Annual Reviewing in the Rough!!!

Reviewing in the Rough is a two-hour two-part workshop taking place at this year’s Academy of Management Annual Meeting on Friday, August 4
th, 2023, 1-3pm, at the Westin Copley Place, Boston in Empire.

In the first part of the workshop, which is open to all, participants will have an opportunity to gain key insights about the review process and quality reviewing through engaging presentations from prior editors’ (Maryam Kouchaki and Batia Wiesenfeld), and author’s (Allison Gabriel) perspectives. 

In the second part of the workshop, participants who complete their own reviews of a Journal of Applied Psychology original submission prior to the conference will receive feedback on these from experienced scholars in interactive small-group sessions. Participants will learn exclusive background information about the original submission from the author herself, along with the actual reviews of his team’s original submission and how they helped shape the final manuscript.

This is the 13th year of RIR and we are thrilled to have many outstanding scholars participating including (in alphabetical
order): Melissa Cardon, Trevor Foulk, Cristiano Guarana, Emily Heaphy, Hana Johnson, Shal Khazanchi, Ravi Kudesia, Brittany Lambert, Elizabeth McClean, Christopher Myers, Frits Pil, Christian Resick, and Kristie Rogers.
