A preliminary list of workshops and special sessions at the MIC 2020:

Doctoral Students' Workshop provides an opportunity for doctoral students, young researchers and postdocs to gain new knowledge and skills on academic writing for publishing scientific papers in international journals. 

Message-driven Writing: A Technique for Bringing Order to the Creative Process

Dr. Matija Vodopivec, University of Primorska, Faculty of Management

Dr. Štefan Bojnec, University of Primorska, Faculty of Management

The workshop will be divided into two parts. Dr. Štefan Bojnec will in the first part of the workshop shortly present how to publish in economic and business journals. In the continuation of the workshop, moderated by Dr. Matija Vodopivec, participants will discuss the message-driven writing technique - a technique where the main message dictates the structure of the text and its content. This technique is in fact commonly used by experienced researchers, and it will be presented in an accessible, clear and useful manner. Because writing is a creative process, it is always demanding and often frustrating -- but with the help of this workshop, we will show how it can be made less stressful and more productive. 
The PhD workshop will also cover the following topics:
  • Planning the content: how to formulate the main message, constructing thematic and extended outlines, and the content of individual sections
  • Drafting and editing: writing the first draft, revising, editing, and tips on writing paragraphs.
  • Publishing: what editors seek, selecting journals, and the process of revising.

 Time and location  TBA


Participation is included in the conference fee.

In a panel discussion the editors will be invited to share their views and experience in regard to selection consideration and criteria for a potential publication. 
Invited Audience: The roundtable is intended for all who are interested in behind the scenes happenings in editorial boards of scientific journals. Useful tips can expect both young authors as well as experienced writers or editors.
