Next GRONEN Reading Group Meeting – July 10

Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite to you to participate in the 18th session of the GRONEN Reading Group (GROReG). GROReG is the platform of the GRONEN network to discuss papers that are at advanced stages in the revision process. The goal is to help scholars from the field to publish their work on sustainability-related topics in high quality academic journals.

The next GROReG session will be held on Friday, 10th of July 2020.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, the session will be held online.

The half-day event with 10-15 participants will take place in the afternoon and host the discussion of two to three papers. Each paper will be assigned to a one hour time slot. After a brief presentation (15 minutes) of the main challenges regarding the revision process of the paper by the author(s), a discussant gives her/his view before the general discussion is opened. Participants receive the papers as well as the review reports and the editorial letter before each session and are expected to have read these documents beforehand. The focus of the discussion is how to deal with reviewer and editorial comments to improve the papers and increase likelihood of acceptance of the papers.

GROReG sessions are characterized by a non-competitive, constructive working atmosphere with the aim to help each other with the development and publication of papers on sustainability-related topics in high quality journals.

GROReG sessions are facilitated by a group of the following core members:

· Elisa Alt (King’s College London, UK)

· Luca Berchicci (Erasmus University Rotterdam, NL)

· Fred Dahlmann (University of Warwick, UK)

· Frank Figge (Kedge Business School Marseille, France)

· Panikos Georgallis (University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

· Tobias Hahn (ESADE Business School Barcelona, Spain)

· Jörn Hoppmann (University of Oldenburg, Germany)

· Kerstin Neumann (University of Innsbruck, Austria)

· Jonatan Pinkse (University of Manchester, UK)

· Sally Russell (University of Leeds, UK)

· Franziska Sump (University of Hamburg, Germany)

· Anne Toubolic (University of Nottingham, UK)

· Amanda Williams (ETH Zurich)

If you have a paper at the “revise & resubmit” stage, preferably with a journal that is at least ranked 3 in the ABS list, we would like to encourage you to participate in the first virtual GROReG session. If you are interested please respond to this email by contacting the reading group coordinator Elisa Alt ( Please send your paper as well as the decision letter including the reviewer reports. All submissions will of course be treated confidentially and only be shared with the participants of the session.
