Research Methods Paper Development Workshop

Friday, October 23, 2020 
Time 15:00 - 17:00 UTC
Sponsored by: Research Methods Community 
Application Required: Yes

The Research Methods Community will offer a Ph.D. Candidate and Junior Faculty Paper Development Workshop at the 2020 SMS 40th Annual Conference. Although all members of the community are invited to participate, preference will be given to advanced Ph.D. candidates (those who have defended their dissertation proposals) and junior faculty (within three years of graduation). The purpose of this PDW is to provide scholars with developmental feedback specifically related to methodology issues and concerns. The PDW will provide participants the opportunity to discuss their current work and any research methods-related concerns in small groups, in a round table format. Participants in each group (consisting of the authors of 3 to 4 papers with a common theme or methodology) will exchange feedback during this portion of the program. Experienced scholars with expertise in research methods will facilitate each group discussion. Immediately following the paper development session, a panel of research methods scholars will discuss important aspects of the research process, including study design, data analysis, and common methodological challenges. A Q&A session will follow.
