"Publishing in top journals" seminars for HSE University Graduate School of Business Faculty members
As part of HSE University "Digital Professors" programme aimed at attracting leading international experts from international educational and scientific institutions to carry out research and teaching activities at HSE University, Desislava Dikova, Professor in International Business and Head of WU Competence Centre for Emerging Markets and CEE at the Vienna University of Economics & Business (WU Wien) held a series of practice-oriented seminars on the topic " Publishing in top journals " for faculty members of HSE University Graduate School of Business from April to September 2021.
Around 50 teachers and researchers from the Graduate School of Business took part in the seminars. Participants had the opportunity to discuss their research results and draft publications, as well as to receive extensive feedback on their articles.
The structure of the practice-oriented seminars included an introduction to publications in leading international journals and a discussion of the specific requirements of the various management journals. The participants then prepared article-proposal plans based on their research, from which Professor Dikova selected the 10 most promising papers for publication. Over a period of two months, the authors had the opportunity to refine the proposal plans into fully-fledged articles. As a result of the work, individual consultations were held with each team of authors of the selected papers.
