The AOM Specialized Conference on Management in Latin America is recruiting English-, Spanish-, and Portuguese-speaking reviewers (Spanish and Portuguese submissions apply only for early stage papers). If you plan to submit your proposal, you are strongly encouraged to sign up as a volunteer reviewer. Sign up will become available when the submission and reviewer system opens. At that time, you will have the opportunity to indicate your ability and willingness to review in a different language. Volunteer reviewers will be asked to select all conference tracks that apply to their area(s) of expertise when signing up to review. We recommend reading the reviewer guidelines to familiarize yourself with the process and review expectations.
Each proposal that you review will be a maximum of 40 pages in length (4 pages for early stage papers and 6 pages for PDW and Symposia submissions). The number of proposals you receive to review will be limited to help ensure high-quality reviews. The reviewer period begins in mid-November and you will be required to complete your assigned reviews by the end of November 2019, so please plan your time accordingly. Please submit your review(s) by the deadline.
We offer these reviewing guidelines to provide guidance on the type of feedback to provide to submitters in your review comments. Your constructive feedback is essential to support submitters as well as your colleagues attending the AOM Specialized Conference on Advancing Management Research in Latin America. The quality of the program is strongly influenced by your reviews.
In addition to commenting on the theoretical development of a proposal and the technical correctness of the methodology, you should also consider the overall value-added contribution the proposal offers. Does the proposal pass the “so what” test? Consider if the proposal has practical value, and comment on its implications for the practice community.
Setting the Tone of the Review
Thank you in advance for the service you are willing to offer as a reviewer, and we hope to see you in Mexico City, Mexico in April 2020.
