Working Paper Series
Leeds University Business School Working Paper Series is a doctoral initiative to enable students and staff to publish their work for discussion and comment prior to submission to external journals.
The Working Paper Series is committed to advancing theory and practice in research and education in all areas of business, economics, finance and management.
The editors aim to publish, on a quarterly basis, high quality papers which progress the body of knowledge in all management disciplines. The editors welcome submissions both from doctoral researchers and contributors that are more established in their academic careers.
The working paper series is a major initiative driven by the doctoral community at LUBS with a key aim of stimulating and enhancing academic learning for doctoral researchers.
Management of the working paper series will be overseen by an editorial team of staff and doctoral candidates, with the latter intimately involved in all aspects of the process. In line with this ethos, the management team will, from time to time, invite contributions from senior academics on topics considered useful to the development of doctoral candidates.
Working Paper Series 2009/10 Awards
The Working Paper Series has two Best Paper Awards to allocate annually. One goes to the best Early Career Researcher/Staff paper and one to the best Doctoral Student paper. Each prize is for £250 and of course, is a great achievement to note on a CV.
The Award Panel has identified the best papers for the Sept 2009 - Sept 2010 period and the winners are:
- Dr Luisa Huaccho Huatuco, Dr Thomas F Burgess and Dr Nicky E Shaw - Best Paper in the Early Career Research/Staff category (Issue 7, October 2009)
- Antonio Rodriguez Gil - Best Paper in the Doctoral Student category (Issue 8 January 2010)
Congratulations go to all of them for submitting such strong contributions to the Working Paper Series. The Award Panel judged both of them to be of extremely high quality.
The prizes will be awarded again for the current session; the Award Panel will meet in early 2012 to identify the best two papers for 2010/11, so get writing - next time, it could be you!
