Online PhD Seminar at the SME Graduate School by Prof. Dr. Alex Vossen: “Navigating the perils of publishing: How to address and incorporate reviewer feedback?

SME Graduate School
Online Doctoral Research Seminar Series, Summer Semester 2020

Description: This afternoon long seminar is intended to provide Ph.D. students an overview on the publication process in top management journals and to illustrate how to address and incorporate reviewer feedback. As an actual example, I will utilize a recently accepted publication in the Financial Times 50 ranked Journal of Business Venturing and illustrate how the paper evolved before submission along feedback from two international conferences and particularly during the publication process along 2 rounds of reviews that took about 13 months. All manuscript versions, reviewer comments, and replies to the reviewers along the several steps will be provided and discussed in detail. The goal of this seminar is to give students a first-hand experience demonstrating incorporating critical feedback that helps them in their own publication process. The seminar will be held online via Zoom.

Lecturer Jun.-Prof. Dr. Alexander Vossen

Marvin Kraft wins IHK Award for his master thesis

Marvin Kraft, a member of the SME GradSchool, received the 35th IHK award for his remarkable master thesis with the title „Einfluss mittelständischer Unternehmen auf die Steuergesetzgebung in Deutschland – Eine empirische Analyse“. In his thesis, Marvin has empirically examined the influence of medium-sized companies on tax legislation in Germany – a subject area that has been scarcely researched so far. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the prize was handed over to Marvin in a small ceremony by IHK president Felix G. Hensel and IHK managing director Klaus Gräbener.
