A Reviewer’s Perspective: Which Mistakes Do Authors Often Make in Qualitative International Business Research?
This presentation summarizes 20 main suggestions on which mistakes to avoid in submitting research to academic journals and books, but also to academic conferences. I developed these suggestions based on my extensive experience from reviewing and publishing articles. Some of my suggestions are directly the case study methodology- and International Business-field-related, while some others are relatively universal. Thus, they could be beneficial for other scholars as well: e.g. for Ph.D. students trying to publish their work without involving more experienced/senior co-authors. Although following all of these suggestions will not automatically guarantee success (my own articles still get rejected, too, from time to time), ignoring them could lead to rejection.
