Publishing Workshop

We are pleased to announce that the University of Ho Chi Minh will host the first Publishing Workshop funded by the British Academy, in collaboration with the University of Leicester and the Open University from the 5-7 of September 2018, as a pre-event ahead of the ACBES conference.

Workshop OverviewBritish Academy

The workshop brings together researchers from Asia-Pacific Area countries, in particular Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines and Malaysia to work with expert editors to develop their manuscripts and to submit high quality journals.

Eligible participants are Early Career Researchers (within 10 years of PhD completion, excluding career breaks) working in South-east Asian Universities, regardless of their nationality.

We welcome papers from Economics, Finance, Organisation studies, Innovation, Technology and Operations, Marketing, Tourism and Cultural Heritage, Creativity and Innovation Management, Sociology and Psychology of Organisations.

This event is an great networking opportunity connecting researchers from the UK  South East Asia to help develop ideas and explore funding opportunities. After the workshop, participants will be connected through a digital platform, the RaW project. The University of Leicester will also fund five researchers to come to the UK to present their papers and meet the editors.


Please take a look at our programme.

Why participate?

You will have the chance to connect with UK researchers and academics, learn how to make reviews, how to structure a paper, and how to apply for funding.

You will take part in sessions focused on topics of interest to early career students such as: identifying interesting journals, publishing your research, answering the reviewers, structuring a paper.

You will then work in small, interactive groups (typically 4 people) with several hours of intensive discussion about your research with a UK academic, where you will present and review the papers of all participants in your group.
