Workplace Wellbeing in the Rough: Paper Development Workshop

Workplace Wellbeing in the Rough paper development workshop is a joint initiative between the Health and Wellbeing Research Unit (HoWRU) at Macquarie University and the Centre for Work, Organisation, and Wellbeing (WOW) at Griffith University. It offers an opportunity for wellbeing researchers and ANZAM members to discuss their work in a supportive environment and receive constructive feedback from leading scholars in the field of management and psychology. Participants will submit a near final manuscript on workplace wellbeing and related topics for review. The invited leading scholars and editors will act as mentors who will provide guidance on how to navigate challenges related to publishing high-impact research. The organisers and panel of mentors have strong publication records and experience as journal editors and editorial board members (e.g., Journal of Organizational Behavior, Journal of Vocational Behavior, Work and Stress, Stress and Health, International Journal of Stress Management, Group and Management Organization, Australian Journal of Management, Journal of Management and Organization).

Confirmed panel members:

We are pleased to announce that the following academics will be present during the workshop to lead discussions: Drs Laramie Tolentino, Carys Chan and Katrina Radford and Professors Patrick Garcia, Paula Brough and Ashlea Troth.  Additional persons may be added later or involved in the reviewing process.

The attending panel would also like to thank Prof. Kate Hutchings for supporting the review process behind this workshop.

Intended audience:
The workshop is open to ANZAM members and researchers at all levels who have interest in or who are currently conducting research on workplace wellbeing and related topics. Doctoral students and early career researchers who are either sole author or first author of a near final manuscript will be given a priority.

Submit your near final manuscript on workplace wellbeing or related topic. Your manuscript must not exceed 40 pages and should include a cover page which includes the title, author names and affiliation, abstract, keywords, and a brief description of a research challenge of dilemma you are facing with regard to the paper.

How participants are chosen:
The first 10 complete and eligible submissions received. For your submission to be eligible, you must have registered for the conference AND meet the requirements noted above.

How do I preregister for this workshop?
Submit your near final manuscript on workplace wellbeing or related topic by 5: 00p.m Sunday, 20th November 2022. Manuscripts are to be sent to:


Publishing Management Learning and Education Scholarship

Understanding the distinctive focus of the main journals in the management education domain is vital in enabling potential submitters to decide which is most suited to their topic and research approach. This includes understanding that the difference between three journals is not just a little tweaking of a manuscript but a contribution to the different methodological, philosophical, theoretical and practical orientations and traditions of the journal through engaging with work previously published.

Understanding also entails appreciation of the topics and areas where journal editors, reviewers and readers have an interest in seeing further research develop. Authors may have more than one option when considering where to place their work, but an awareness of editorial remit and journal readership can provide guidance. The workshop will help scholars to position their work thoughtfully in the overlapping spaces occupied by the different management learning and education journals, namely Academy of Management Learning & Education, the Journal of Management Education, and Management Learning. This workshop brings together editors and associate editors of these three leading journals in the field of management learning and education. In the first part, the editors will introduce their journals and discuss with the audience how to understand and relate to the differences between them. In the second part, workshop participants will receive specific individual feedback on their work-in-progress and paper ideas, through engagement with editors and associate editors.

Confirmed Panel Members
Dr Paul Hibbert and Dr Stuart Middleton. Additional panel members may be added during the registration process.

To get the most out of this workshop, participants should send a short summary of their work (5-10 pages), that is focussed on the field of management learning / management education, to the workshop organisers in advance. There will also be a limited opportunity for delegates to provide a 5 minute oral introduction to their work-in-progress (no slides etc).

How participants are chosen:
Part 1 is open to all. For part 2, the first 15 complete and eligible submissions received will be selected for discussion. For your submission to be eligible for this part, you must have registered for the conference AND meet the requirements noted above.

How do I preregister for this workshop?
Submit the short paper by 5:00p.m Sunday, 20th November 2022. Please provide author names and email contact details on the cover page. Manuscripts are to be sent to:


Emotions and Cognitions in the Rough – Project/Paper Development Workshop

The Emotions and Cognitions in the Rough workshop (ECR) provides an excellent opportunity to discuss your research in an informal and collegial roundtable setting. ECR is intended to help PhD students, ECRs and senior scholars develop a research paper in the field of management (e.g., OB and HRM). Each roundtable will have 2-3 facilitators to give feedback on 2-3 early-stage research papers, allowing plenty of time for discussion. Regardless of whether you are a senior or a more junior researcher, this workshop offers you an invaluable opportunity to receive detailed feedback from scholars who are often editors or on the editorial board of top A* journals in the field of management.

In particular, many past ECR participants have emphasized how much they have benefited from their participation in the workshop in terms of developing their theoretical models and their planned methodology. This feedback has been instrumental in helping them further develop and polish their research for publication in top academic journals.
Whether this is your first major research project or your fiftieth, this is a chance you won’t want to miss!

We are very pleased that the following scholars have agreed to be our panel members:
Professor Neal Ashkanasy (UQ), Professor Peter Jordan (Griffith U), Professor Kevin Lowe (U of Sydney) Professor Ashlea Troth (Griffith U), Professor Herman Tse (Monash U). More panel members will join depending on the number of submissions.

You are invited to submit an extended abstract of 400 to 500 words describing your research project/study as well as a cover sheet with the paper title, author(s), affiliations, and contact details.

You will have 5-8 minutes to describe your research, followed by 10-12 minutes of discussion in a small group with peers and senior researchers who will provide you with detailed and constructive feedback. I welcome papers (e.g., conceptual, empirical and review) describing work-in-progress or developmental papers and also encourage full papers for getting feedback. The papers do not need to cover any topics of emotions and cognitions.

Procedure for Submitting Your Abstract:
1. Submit an MS Word file, with double-spaced text in 12-pt font to Herman Tse ( by 5: 00p.m Sunday, 20th November, 2022.
2. The file should include a cover sheet with the project/study or proposal title, author(s), affiliations, and contact details, plus an extended abstract of 400-500 words describing the research project/study or proposal. Please use the following email subject heading: Emotions and Cognitions in the Rough (ECR) Workshop – Abstract Submission.
3. To facilitate your short presentation, please also prepare 8-10 copies of handout of your research for circulation during the workshop.
4. You will be contacted about the detail of your workshop participation in late November.
