The Society for Entrepreneurship Scholars runs a manuscript “boot-camp” to help junior faculty and graduate students in entrepreneurship, as well as established scholars from other disciplines who are new to the entrepreneurship field, get a manuscript ready for publication in a top-tier journal. Bill Schulze and Sharon Alvarez are chairing the conference this year, to be held 11-13 December at the Solitude Mountain Resort near Salt Lake City. A team of senior scholar-mentors, including Rajshree Argawal, Julio DeCastro, Greg Dess, David Deeds, Harry Sapienza, and me, will work with participants to get their manuscripts in shape. There’s also great networking and, this year, great skiing.

Submissions should be sent to by November 3. The full announcement, with all the relevant contact information, is posted below the fold.

The Society of Entrepreneurship Scholars(SES), with the generous support of the Kauffman Foundation, invites you to submit your best work — work you hope to publish in a top tier journal — to the 2008 SES Manuscript Boot-camp. This year’s conference is chaired by Bill Schulze ( and Sharon Alvarez (

The sole purpose of this conference is to increase the flow of manuscripts about entrepreneurship that are submitted to and published in top tier journals. Papers accepted for the conference will be reviewed in depth by at least two senior scholars who have a history of success publishing in top-tier scholarly journals. These scholars will work with you, both individually and in small groups, focusing upon measures that you can take to improve the manuscript and enhance its prospects for publication in a top tier journal.

This year’s conference will be held at the Solitude Mountain Resort, one of Utah’s lesser known ski treasures. Solitude was recently rated 3rd in the nation for “Best Powder” skiing by Skiing Magazine and is located about 40 minutes from the Salt Lake City airport.

The anticipated scholar-mentors for the 2008 Conference include, among others;

Sharon Alvarez, Ohio State University

Rajshree Argawal, U of Illinois

Julio DeCastro, Babson University

Greg Dess, UT-Dallas

David Deeds, U. St. Thomas

Peter Klein, U of Missouri

Harry Sapienza, U of Minnesota

Other scholar/mentors include Art Brief (Utah), Jeff Dyer (BYU), Bill Hesterly (Utah), Gary Rhoads (BYU), Bill Schulze (Utah)  and Dave Whetten (BYU)

About twenty papers will be accepted for the conference. The sole competitive criterion for acceptance is the paper’s perceived potential for publication in top tier journals. Because submitted papers will be judged based upon potential, they may be at any stage of development; i.e., working papers as well as papers that have already been reviewed and rejected by a journal. Papers may be conceptual or empirical. We encourage submissions from faculty  from other disciplines who are interested in publishing about entrepreneurship, as well as from junior faculty and advanced doctoral students in the field of entrepreneurship.

Since the design of the conference restricts the number of participants, only one author (who should identify themselves as the submitting author) will be invited to participate in the conference. You may submit multiple co-authored papers to the conference, but each submitting author must be unique. If the submitting author is unable to attend the conference, the invitation will be withdrawn. Co-authors may not attend in the submitting author’s place. All papers will be blind reviewed.

Please submit your articles no later than November 3rd. You will be notified by November 12th.
