BUiD’s academics publish their research in the The International Journal of Management Education

Professor Stephen Wilkins, Head of Business Administration programmes, and Dr. Joe Hazzam, Head of Communications, Marketing and External Relations, along with Dr Jonathan Lean, Associate Professor in Strategic Management at the University of Plymouth  co-authored a research paper titled, ‘Doctoral publishing as professional development for an academic career in higher education’ published by Elsevier in The International Journal of Management Education.


In their research, they aimed to discover the views, practices and advice of experienced doctoral educators on how doctoral students in the fields of business and management may be encouraged and supported to write for publication, in order to promote their development as future academics. The paper offers recommendations for students, institutions and supervisors/advisors.


It is the first international study that explores the attitudes and practices of experienced doctoral educators to doctoral publishing, in the contexts of student development for an academic career, and doctoral supervisors acting as career mentors alongside their supervisory role.
