We are delighted to announce the first face-to-face meeting of the GRONEN Reading Group (GROReG) post pandemic, just before the GRONEN 2022 Conference in Amsterdam. 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 meeting will happen on Tuesday, 31st of May 2022, between 8am-12pm CET at Hotel Casa Amsterdam (the same venue of the GRONEN 2022 Conference).
If you have an R&R in a sustainability-related topic, and you are close to/in Amsterdam for the GRONEN conference or another reason, do consider joining us. We will accommodate three papers in the next meeting. 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. The next meeting in Amsterdam will be our 24th session.
