Gronen Reading Group

GROReG sessions offer a platform to discuss papers at the revise & resubmit stage with high quality journals. The sessions provide the opportunity to constructively discuss reviewer comments in order to help authors to find ways how to deal with these in the revision process.



During GROReG sessions each paper will be assigned to a one hour time slot. After a brief presentation (15 minutes) of the main challenges regarding the revision process of the paper by the author(s), a discussant gives her/his view before the general discussion is opened. Participants receive the papers as well as the review reports and the editorial letter before each session and are expected to have read these documents beforehand. The focus of the discussion is how to deal with reviewer and editorial comments to improve the papers and increase likelihood of acceptance of the papers. GROReG sessions are characterized by a non-competitive, constructive working atmosphere with the aim to help each others 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:

Alberto Aragon-Correa                    Universidad de Granada, Spain
Luca Berchicci                                   Erasmus University Rotterdam, NL
Frances Bowen                                  Queen Mary University of London, UK
