Society for Case Research
The Society for Case Research held a preconference workshop to help authors improve their case research skills. It was held the day prior to the 2013 summer workshop and was informally called” the Case Writer’s Boot Camp” as it focused on the basics of case writing. The speakers for the workshop, Karen Berger, Craig Davis, and Cara Peters, addressed topics that ranged from what is in a case and teaching note to tips for writing and publishing cases. Evaluation by the twenty attendees was positive, and the editors thought this was another way to share as least part of the workshop with the JCS readers.
