IV Paper Development Seminar Virtual Edition 2021
April 26 - April 27

Call for papers / proposals: “Entrepreneurship Process Research”

This 4th edition of the Paper Development Seminar (4PDS) will be held virtually in April 2021.

Papers / proposals applying a process perspective to entrepreneurship are welcome. We are open to any contributions analysing the entrepreneurial process, may they be conceptual or empirical and, in this latter case, using quantitative (ideally longitudinal, but also cross-sectional) and/or qualitative methods.

Submissions will be peer reviewed. Those deemed of highest potential by the organizing committee will be invited to participate. Selected participants will be offered the opportunity to submit a full paper (if they did not do so initially). Extended abstracts may also be presented at the seminar. The objective is to develop a productive and intimate work environment. For this reason, we will limit the number of proposals/papers to be presented, to a maximum of 20.

The European Council for Small Business (ECSB) supports the 4th Paper Development Seminar in Entrepreneurship Process Research as a co-branded event. The ECSB will award a free one-year membership to the presenting author of the best paper/proposal presented at the 4PDS as well as a fast track submission to the RENT2021 Conference.

The deadline for the submission of papers / proposals is 31 January 2021.

There is no specific format or template to follow. However, in the case of proposals, a minimum of 1500 words is required, including aims, theoretical framework, methodology and findings (if applicable), implications and contribution. Submissions will be made by email to

Given the virtual format of this seminar, and thanks to the generous support of the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies (SAMS), the registration is free of charge for the authors of accepted submissions.
