📢 Exciting Announcement! 🎉

Paper Development Workshops Return to ACERE 2024! 📝✍️

ACERE, the Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research Exchange Conference, is proud to continue its tradition of hosting highly valuable Paper Development Workshops. These workshops provide a unique opportunity for researchers to receive expert guidance and feedback on their work from distinguished scholars in the field.

Last year, we had the privilege of hosting three exceptional workshops led by industry-leading journal editors. Johan Wiklund, Editor-in-Chief of Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Sherry Thatcher, Editor-in-Chief of Academy of Management Review, and Jeff McMullen, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Business Venturing, graciously shared their insights and expertise with participants.

In addition, we were honored to have Per Davidsson, the winner of the prestigious Global Award for Entrepreneurship Research 2023, significantly contribute to the success of the Paper Development Workshops. With his wealth of knowledge and expertise, he provided invaluable guidance to researchers, inspiring them to reach new heights in their entrepreneurship research.

And the great news is, this year, we are thrilled to announce that we will once again be offering paper development workshops, led by esteemed journals in entrepreneurship and management! 🌟

Stay tuned for the official announcement of the participating journals and the esteemed contributing editors. As soon as the arrangements are finalized, we will share the exciting details with you, ensuring that you have all the information you need to maximize your conference experience.

As a first-time participant and a new doctoral student just 6 months in, the conference has been extremely useful for me in terms of my own personal learning and in meeting new, liked-minded individuals. I would definitely encourage more of my friends to apply the conference in the future.
