Ensuring Celebration Skills as Part of the PSR Seminar

 We wrapped up the "Publishing Scholarly Research" Seminar in Liege today.  We then made a short journey (70 meters?) to The Shamrock.  There we all had a beverage and practiced our celebration skills (for the next journal publication).

Conducting Another "Publishing Scholarly Research" Seminar in Liege, Belgium

The second stop on our (late) spring 2023 tour of Europe included the second publishing seminar in the last two weeks...this time at HEC at the University of Liege, Belgium.  From June 8-13 we had a great group of 19 PhD candidates who asked many questions about the academic publishing process.

One of the highlights for seminar participants was discussing why the paper from MY dissertation was rejected by the Journal of Marketing 22 years ago.  They were really good at identifying (many) problems with the manuscript.

Exploring a German Village with Wafa Hammedi

My colleague from the University of Namur (Belgium) took us to the German village of Monschau (near the Belgian border) on Saturday, June 10.

We walked around the city, saw two wedding parties, had lunch, and shopped for post cards.

Monschau is a beautiful village with a river running through it and lots of traditional German buildings.  We climbed many stairs to get to a castle overlooking the village.  I love the photo of the steps we saw at the top.  (See below.)

Dining with the HEC Marketing Faculty in Liège, Belgium

After the first day (of four days) of my "Publishing Scholarly Research" seminar, Candy and I were treated to dinner at Union Nautique De Liege, along the Meuse River.  (In the Netherlands it is called the Maas River.)  It was a nice evening with nice people!

Conducting the "Publishing Scholarly Research" Seminar again at WHU in Vallendar, Germany

After conducting the "Publishing Scholarly Research" (PSR) seminar via Zoom in 2021 and 2022, I was back doing it face-to-face with eight very sharp and highly motivated PhD students at WHU-Otto Beisheim School of Management.  

Eight eager-to-publish PhD students at WHU

We spend four days discussing how to navigate the review process.  They heard several stories about various research projects and asked many questions along the way.  The final step of the process, celebrating publication success, was carefully monitored, as I wanted to be sure they had mastered the most important step of all.  (They really did not need my input on this part of the process.)

Cheers!  (or, Prost!)
