45th Annual Society for Case Research & Global Jesuit Case Series Summer Workshop

San Jose State

San José State University, San José CA

Date: July 26-28, 2023
While in-seat attendance is preferred, this year's workshop will be offered both in- person and online via Zoom 

Submission Deadline Extended: Tuesday, July 4, 2023, 11:59 p.m.


The Society for Case Research invites cases and papers from faculty with an interest in case writing.  Submissions can include:

1. Embryo cases - Have an idea for a case?  Create a short draft and identify some learning outcomes.  That's all you need to participate.  Your embryo will receive feedback from experienced case writers.
2. Full case studies - The Journal of Case Studies (JCS) and Business Case Journal (BCJ) publish full-length case studies in two or three issues a year.  Submissions should include both a case and teaching note.  JCS has a late September submission deadline.  BCJ accepts submissions throughout the year.
3. Critical incidents - The Journal of Critical Incidents (JCI) is an annual journal that publishes short cases (3 pages maximum) that focus on a single decision point.  JCI has a late May submission deadline.
4. Articles - Both JCS and BCJ accept articles related to case writing.  

5. Panels - Submissions with multiple presenters related to a same topic are also considered for presentation. 

*Manuscript guidelines for the journals can be found at: Manuscript_Guidelines.pdf.  

As in the past, this year’s event will be a great opportunity for you to receive feedback from other case writers about your cases, critical incidents, and embryo cases.

Also part of this summer’s workshop will be our popular case writers bootcamp, to be held immediately preceding the regular workshop sessions on Wednesday, July 26, 2023.  Led by instructors with years of experience as case writers and editors of case journals, the case writers bootcamp will help those new to case study research and writing (as well as those wanting a “refresher”) refine their ideas into case studies that can be effectively used in the classroom and pass through the peer-review process toward publication in case journals.  

If you would like to submit a case, critical incident, case embryo, article, or an idea for a panel discussion to the workshop, the submission deadline has been extended to Tuesday, July 4, 2023.  Submissions will be via the Call for Papers button on the left side of this page.  The workshop registration fee is $189, which covers activities July 26-28 and one-year membership to the Society for Case Research; the case writers bootcamp on Wednesday, July 26, is an additional $35.
