The 23rd session of the GRONEN Reading Group (GROReG)

Dear colleagues,Do you have an R&R in a sustainability-related topic? Then consider joining the 23rd session of the GRONEN Reading Group (GROReG). GROReG is the platform of the GRONEN network to discuss sustainability-related papers at the ‘revise & resubmit’ stage (preferably with a journal that is at least ranked 3 in the ABS list).

The next GROReG session will be held online on Tuesday, 22nd of February 2022, between 12.30-4.30pm GMT (1.30-5.30pm CET; 7:30-11:30am EST).

Spots are allocated on a first come, first served basis to those papers that meet the criteria above. To participate, we ask you to share your original submission (not the revised paper) and decision letter with the group (on a confidential basis). Each paper receives a 1-hour slot. On the day of the meeting, we ask you to present your approach to the review during 10-15 minutes. The next 45-50 minutes are then dedicated to a discussion on how to best deal with reviewer and editorial comments.

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.
