26 th EurOMA Conference

Operations adding value to society

17th - 19th June 2019, Helsinki, Finland

EurOMA 2019 Journal Publishing Workshop Module 1

Date: June 16, 2019


The 12th EurOMA Workshop on Journal Publishing in Operations Management is especially organized for faculty in the field of Operations Management (OM), who wish to increase the quality of their publications in recognized international academic journals in the field.

The Publishing Workshop process has three specific steps:

Step 1: Writing

The Publishing Workshop process starts with a EurOMA conference abstract which has been accepted for the main conference programme and also for the Publishing Workshop. Following acceptance, each participant will develop the abstract into a conference paper. This paper forms the basis for participation in the Publishing Workshop. In the workshop, each paper will be allocated to a reviewer or journal editorial board member as discussant, who will comment on the content and clarity of presentation of the ideas.

Step 2: Overview of the submission and review process

The workshop will start with a session with reviewers and members of the editorial boards, where participants will be briefed on the editorial policy, publication process and strategies for submission.

Step 3: Small Group Discussions

Discussion of each paper will follow, in small group sessions. These sessions will enable participants to obtain feedback on their papers from the reviewers and editorial board members, as well as from other workshop participants in the same track. The suggestions for further development will allow authors to identify the key steps to bring the paper up to publication standards. There is, of course, no certainty of subsequent publication as a result of the participation in the Publishing Workshop since the journals’ blind review is the only process that leads to the acceptance of a paper for publication.

Application, Submission and Review

To apply for participation in the Publishing Workshop, applicants must submit his/her accepted conference abstract by e-mail no later than April 11, 2019 to both Professor Juliana Hsuan at jh.om@cbs.dk and Professor Cristina Gimenez at cristina.gimenez@esade.edu.

The acceptance decision will be based on three criteria:

  1. Relevance and fit with the scope of the journal(s)
  2. Quality
  3. Opportunity for increasing participation by researchers for whom English is not a first language.


The Publishing Workshop begins on June 16 at 8:30 with registration and ends at 17:00. Participants are expected to stay for the full duration of the workshop.

Registration and Fee

The Workshop will be open only to accepted and registered EurOMA 2019 Conference participants. Accepted participants for the Publishing Workshop should register for the Workshop through the Conference website. The registration fee is €125. It includes documents, morning and afternoon refreshments, and a light lunch.
