Applications are welcome from researchers in all research areas of Operations Management and Supply Chain Management, especially those from Central and Eastern Europe. There are two ways of applying for the publishing workshop: (1) with extended abstracts, presenting your research; (2) without extended abstracts, learning about research design and paper development process.

Workshop applicants are kindly asked to submit an extended abstract up to 1 000 words presenting their research projects, prior to participation. Please send your extended abstracts to Kristina Petljak, PhD, e-mail:

Please state in abstract which theoretical stream you aim to take up as well as which (empirical) research methods you plan to use. Please make sure, you also point out, how theory and method related to each other.

Please structure the extended abstract according to the following segments:

1. Purpose - Theoretical background, managerial problem and research questions, objectives and/or hypotheses.

2. Design/methodology/approach - How are the objectives achieved? Describe the main data and data sources as well as methods of data collection, analysis and validation.

3. Findings - Presentation and discussion of achieved or expected results.

4. Originality/value - Highlight achieved or expected contribution to the theory, practice, methodology or teaching of SCM / OM.

If you would require more guidance, please take a look at the Emerald website for structured abstracts.
