Matthew Haynes 0 416 Article rating: 5.0

Call for Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management cases for the 2020 North American Case Research Association (NACRA) annual meeting. The submission deadline is June 15, 2020, and the website for the conference and call for proposals may be found here (http://www.nacra.net/conference/call-for-cases/)

NACRA is an excellent conference for case writers. Case writers whom cases are selected will participate in the conference, receiving tailored feedback through NACRA’s distinctive round-table setting. For new case writers, NACRA offers a “start-up” workshop, where first-time case authors can present 2-page early cases for an in-depth discussion on how to shape their research into a full case and instructor’s manual. Traditionally, conference presenters have aimed to publish their research in the publication of NACRA, the Case Research Journal. In addition, cases published in the Case Research Journal are distributed by Harvard Business Publishing, The Case Center, Study.net, and Wilfrid Laurier University.  While “NACRA” has the words “North American” in its title, know that scholars from around the world presented at the just-concluded 2019 conference, and there were special awards given for cases written in French, Spanish and Chinese.
