The progress of research in organizational studies relies upon the commitment and the creativity of post-doctoral fellows and junior scholars who explore new questions, new methods and new phenomena. EGOS puts special emphasis on supporting the academic development of younger scholars and their positioning and integration in the academic community(ies). The purpose of this workshop is to help junior scholars to publish and to refine their paper, to facilitate their academic socialisation, emphasize the importance and offer support in improving junior scholars’ publication capabilities, and provide an arena for explorations of issues on the cutting edge of research in areas.
The pre-Colloquium Post-Doctoral and Early Career Scholars Workshop offers an active exchange, based on a dialogue among junior and senior academics who seek to strengthen junior scholars’ involvement with the EGOS community and to help them in finding their ways in academia.
