Call for Submission

DJIM Call for Submissions – Volume 14


The Dalhousie Journal of Interdisciplinary Management (DJIM) is currently accepting submissions for its 14th volume. DJIM is a student-led initiative aimed at publishing Dalhousie University student work of the highest quality and significance in all areas of management.


Who can submit?

Students enrolled in all programs in the Faculty of Management, including MBA, MES, MIM, MLIS, MPA, MREM, BComm, & BMgmt.


What can I submit?

We welcome original submissions of research papers, book reviews, business cases, and interviews that engage with all topics related management.


“Management” is pretty broad. Can you be more specific?

The interdisciplinary nature of DJIM means that we accept a wide variety of submissions. Think about the issues, theories, trends, and practices discussed in your classes in the Faculty of Management—these are all appropriate paper topics!


Past submissions have been incredibly diverse. We’ve published papers on biodiversity conservation, information and knowledge management in Star Wars fiction, economic theory, and political whistleblowing (just to name a few). No topic is off-topic, as long as it relates to management.


How do I submit?

Please send an abstract briefly summarizing your work, no more than 250 words, to by Tuesday, December 5, 2017. This step gives our editors a head’s up about your submission’s content.


Then, please send your full submission to by Friday, January 12, 2018. We’ve chosen this date so you will have a chance to revise papers written for classes in the fall 2017 term over the holiday break. Please see our Submission Guidelines for more information about the submission process.
