Publications in top-tier journals are an important means by which our work is improved (through the review process) and disseminated to our colleagues. Such publications are additionally important for career purposes, namely for the tenure and promotion process. While many scholars are familiar with the US-based top-tier journals and consider them as a primary outlet, international management journals have risen in the academic rankings and have developed a reputation of excellence. Several international journals have thus evolved into outlets equally attractive for rigorous and impactful research. At the same time, international journals differ from US-based journals in subtle but important ways. Awareness of these differences is important for scholars who consider these international journals as a potential conduit for their work. The goal of this PDW is to share information and have a discussion regarding publishing in top international management journals. We bring together a panel of editors and associate editors from six top international journals. Each will introduce their journal’s editorial policies, as well as highlight differences between their journals and leading US-based journals. This session will combine individual presentations by panelists, a general Q&A session with the audience, and breakout discussions.
