Methodological Frontiers: Leveraging New Methods and Data Sources

Saturday, September 17, 2022
09:00h – 12:00h

Sponsored by the Research Methods Community

Application & Pre-registration Required for Part B

Given the success of last year’s SMS workshop on Methodological Frontiers, we are happy to follow-up this year with a new workshop. We will focus on how new methods and data can push the frontier of strategy research to generate novel insights. The session will include a panel discussion and application-based roundtable discussions.

Part A: Panel Discussion (open to all conference attendees): Panelists will share insights on publishing research using frontier methodologies in a two-part panel discussion. The first portion will discuss questions like: What challenges have they faced from editors and reviewers? How have they dealt with these challenges? What are the advantages in pushing frontier methodologies into “mainstream” strategy research?

In the second portion, panelists will address the idea of what kinds of questions can be answered with frontier methods and what are the limitations.
Publishing at the Frontiers— Authors and editors who have successfully published with frontier methodologies discuss their experience of getting their papers published
Methodological Frontiers: Leveraging New Methods and Data Sources —what questions can we answer with frontier methods and what are the limitations? How do they see these approaches advancing going forward, i.e., how are the frontiers evolving?

Part B: Round Table (application-based): Participants will discuss their research and interests with panelists in roundtables. The roundtables will provide participants the opportunity to gain personalized feedback on their research ideas from faculty panelists. Participants will be asked to submit short abstracts of their ideas or questions prior to the workshop. Potential Round table topics include: Method specific table topics (i.e. machine learning, simulations, etc.), Research design with “frontier” methods, Publishing on the frontiers and navigating the R&R process, and Going on the market with frontier methods: the opportunities and pitfalls.
