“There was nothing to improve. The presentation was clear and well organised. I am only a first year PhD student and the presentation helped me to visualise the logic behind a paper and its related crafting work. Moreover, the presentation offered me best glances on the writing process and made me reflecting on my current contribution. I was very happy to attend it.”
– Gabriella Cioce

“This was a really insightful session. I think the way Gerardo deciphered the craft of publishing, as the communication of ideas, based on conventions (that can be understood in semiotic terms) was extremely effective. Speed reading two examples of effectively crafted papers reinforced the message. I used the semiotic checklist (and the exemplar paper based on routines) straight after the session in a Skype discussion with a colleague, working on a paper which we have so far struggled to position. ”
– Dr Jeannie Holstein, Assistant Professor – Strategic and Public Sector Management

“Thanks so much for organisation yesterday’s helpful professional development workshop. As an early career scholar, I found the workshop immensely beneficial, and I know I’ll be going back to my notes from the session every time I write a paper going forward.”

2016: Grenoble, France – Journal of Management Studies 'Crafting Papers for Publication'

Gerardo Patrotta (Senior Associate Editor) ran a workshop at Grenoble Ecole de Management on the topic of ‘Crafting Papers for Publication’.

“As an early stage researcher in management discipline, it is highly important to me not only to know the theory of crafting a paper, but also to learn how to put that theory to practice. Gerardo’s seminar was an excellent refresher of the guidelines, as well as a practical guide to publishing in a prestigious journal. What’s more, the hands-on exercise of identifying how the theoretical guidelines appear in published articles was very beneficial in that it enabled me to see how theory can be put to practice to produce an outcome that meets high standards.”
– Yasaman Sadeghi, 1st year PhD student

The Master Class closed with a cocktail reception, and dinner at La Fabrique Annexe in Montréal.

“Congratulations for an excellent event; I’m already looking forward to the next one!! …It is so difficult to get focused expert feedback on a draft paper, that getting face-to-face comments and discussion from two such senior editors was far beyond any expectation.”

– Juan Lopez-Cotarelo, Warwick University, UK

“Thanks so much for organizing this. Davide’s willingness to reveal so much was very helpful. It was fun, stimulating and transforming. The layers of onion that you gradually revealed with the panel afterward helped make so much more sense of it all. I think that my writing will be more lucid as a result.”

– Wendellyn Reid, HEC Montreal, Canada

“It was a great pleasure for me to attend the workshop. I just want you to know that by organizing the event you have definitely left an impact on lives and careers of the young scholars (including PhDs) that, I am sure, you sympathize with.”
