The International Journal of Arts Management announces its first Paper Development Workshop. This hands-on workshop gives participants the opportunity to develop an academic research paper for possible publication in IJAM or a similar journal.


In lieu of traditional conference presentations, participants will discuss their papers in breakout roundtable sessions and receive feedback from both IJAM editors and peers to improve their papers and prepare them for submission. The workshop will also feature guest speakers and an editors’ panel discussing best practices for developing research projects to submit to academic journals.


The theme of this year’s workshop is “Telling Your Story.”
