Babson Fellows Program for Entrepreneurship Researchers

Babson Fellows Program for Entrepreneurship Researchers

September 27–October 15, 2021


Entrepreneurship research fuels entrepreneurial activity and helps educators make a lasting impact on the field.

Published research is the backbone of academic careers, and publishing in top journals helps elevate both individual and departmental impact. The Babson Fellows Program for Entrepreneurship Researchers is an immersive online academic writing workshop for all entrepreneurship scholars to gain a profound understanding of entrepreneurship research.

This program will help entrepreneurship scholars gain a better understanding of the landscape of entrepreneurship research including the history, methodology, and research opportunities. Over three weeks, you will receive coaching and mentoring from top entrepreneurship faculty and peers, and you will leave with a six-month work plan that will enable you to submit a finished paper to a journal for consideration.

Submit your application before July 31, 2021, to join this program.

Nurture Your Writing Skills

Are you an entrepreneurship educator wishing to publish articles based on your dissertation research or hoping to develop a secondary research stream? Do you value mentorship and peer-to-peer collaboration in developing your research agenda and publishing your work? Babson’s entrepreneurship faculty has published extensively in top journals, edited numerous book chapters, and knows the ins and outs of navigating the challenges of getting published.

This program teaches you to plan your publication process well, covering everything from the writing process to navigating institutional pressures to selecting co-authors to finding the right mentoring and support to managing your time and resources all the way to getting your paper published. Get a taste of what Professors Candida Brush and William Gartner will teach you by watching their video with tips for success in the publishing process.

Steps to a Published Paper

Understand the Intricacies of the Publishing Process

This is much more than an academic writing workshop. Throughout these three weeks, you will be coached as a writer while receiving invaluable feedback from an esteemed panel of peers, editors, faculty members, and world-renowned experts culminating in a concrete, actionable six-month plan to have your written article ready for submission. 

Elevate your dissertation research, develop a secondary research stream, prepare conference proposals, and build a strong portfolio of academic publications while growing your network in the field. There also will be a 30-day follow-up to encourage continued momentum.

Identify and clear roadblocks in your research career

Publishing research in top journals and getting it in front of the most relevant audiences requires careful planning and hard work. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses in navigating the process, seeking out help from peers, and learning from top faculty in the field will help you narrow your focus and equip you with the knowledge and mindset needed to elevate your scholarship.
