GRONEN Reading Group

King's Building, Strand Campus, London


Do you have an R&R in a sustainability-related topic? Join the next GRONEN Reading Group meeting at the Centre for Sustainable Business, King’s Business School, London | 10-year anniversary celebration

Dear colleagues,

If you have an R&R in a sustainability-related topic, we invite you to participate in the next meeting of the GRONEN Reading Group (GROReG), which will be hosted by the Centre for Sustainable Business at King’s Business School, King’s College London. GROReG is the platform of the GRONEN (Group for Research on Organizations and the Natural Environment) network to discuss sustainability-related papers at the ‘revise & resubmit’ stage (preferably with a journal that is at least ranked 3 in the ABS list).

The meeting will happen on Friday, 14th of June 2024, between 12.30-17.30 BST. On this occasion, we will be celebrating 10 years and the 30th session of our reading group, which has helped 54% percent of papers discussed to date to progress to publication.

Spots are allocated on a first come, first served basis to those papers that meet the criteria above. To participate, we ask you to share your original submission (not the revised paper) and decision letter with the group (on a confidential basis). Each paper receives a 1-hour slot. On the day of the meeting, we ask you to present your approach to the review during 10-15 minutes. The next 45-50 minutes are then dedicated to a discussion on how to best deal with reviewer and editorial comments.

GROReG sessions are characterized by a non-competitive, constructive working atmosphere with the aim to help each other with the development and publication of papers on sustainability-related topics in high quality journals.

GROReG sessions are facilitated by a group of the following core members:

  • Elisa Alt, King’s College London
  • Grace Augustine, University of Bath
