Working papers

Our research group invites you to submit to the ManGeo working paper series. We encourage scholars to present their research on the spatiality of management and its implications for the global as well as local economies. For those who have collaborated with our academic events and/or submit high-quality contributions we offer quick turnaround from submission to online publication. We seek to publish innovative ideas on diverse managerial issues encouraging case study research usually not easy to publish in common journals.  We provide light-touch but scholarly feedback that will help you toward publication in journals and books.
