PhD Workshop: „How to design surveys and experiments for top tier publishing”

Being able to design experiments and surveys is a key qualification for anyone who wants to do any type of behavioral research. However, despite a lot of effort and resources invested, often experiments and surveys are designed suboptimally or are outright flawed. This also means that the chances to publish such studies in top-tier journals will be seriously limited. In this four-day PhD (and junior faculty) seminar, we will teach how to design and conduct experiments and surveys that rigorously test theory.

Additional emphasis will be laid on typical challenges when designing, recruiting for, analyzing, and writing up experiments and surveys. This will also include coverage of online studies.

The seminar consists of a mix of extensive prereading of key articles, to-the-point in-class discussion, and actual designing of own research projects within the seminar using Questback or Qualtrics and the Amazon’s MTurk platform.

At the end, participants will be able to confidently design their own behaviorally-oriented studies, and potentially already have a running start with one of them.

Lecturers: Niels Van Quaquebeke & Christian Tröster

Guest lecture by the AMJ Editor in Chief,  Laszlo Tihanyi

Date: Dec 7th to 10th

Language: Seminar language is English.

Location: If the situation continues to allow, the seminar will take place on the campus of the KLU in Hamburg, strictly following our COVID19 hygiene plan. Else we will prepare an online version.

The target group of the workshop is early career scholars who intend to pursue an academic career in the fields of organization and management theory, strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship, organizational behavior, HRM, international management or public management. The workshop is open to academics in early stages of their academic careers and PhD students who have already completed a substantial part of their dissertation projects. The Austrian Early Scholars Workshop is open to and invites research that draws from a broad range of theoretical and methodological approaches. Given several faculty members’ extensive expertise in institutional theory, the Workshop provides an environment particularly conducive to research in this area.

Application Process
Applicants are requested to email a CV and a short essay (max. 2,000 words; excluding bibliography) to georg.reischauer@jku.at by March 10, 2020. This short essay should summarize the research to be presented in the workshop. Notification of acceptance is sent no later than March 20, 2020. A longer paper – either an extended essay (max. 4,000 words) or a full paper (max. 8,000 words) – must be sent by April 30, 2020 for distribution to discussants and workshop participants.

Workshop Format
All participants present a research study during the workshop. A selection of works is presented in plenary sessions (eighteen minutes for presentation, followed by ten minutes for feedback from two discussants and ten minutes for open discussion); others are discussed at roundtables consisting of three or four early scholars and two faculty members (five minutes for presentations followed by everyone at the roundtable providing feedback based on their advance reading of the paper, and open discussion). To be able to contribute fully to the discussions and help their fellows’ research, participants are required to prepare by reading their colleagues essays and papers prior to the workshop. Essays and papers are distributed electronically one week prior to the workshop.

Program and Fees
The workshop commences on at 10 a.m. on May 14. We adjourn no later than 5 p.m. on May 15. There are no workshop fees for accepted participants. The workshop dinner on Thursday is covered by the organization.

13th International Research Workshop „Methods for PhD“

Empirical research is seeking through methodological processes to discover, hopefully, nontrivial facts and insights. Beside choosing a topic and grounding an idea in theory, empirical research consists of gathering and analysing data as well as presenting results in scientific contexts in order to contribute new issues to the body of acquired knowledge – not only to someone‘s own but also to that of others.

Our workshop tackles these steps of your research project:

  • Gathering data via (un)structured interviews and analysing standardised survey data and
  • using the computer for qualitative data analysis and as a tool for statistics.

These steps will strengthen the cooperation in empirical research to boost and streamline one’s project.

The 13th International Research Workshop will take place at the Akademie Sankelmark (near Flensburg) and the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) – Campus Kolding from 15 – 20 September 2019. The workshop programme is online now. You are welcome to register for the Newsletter to get updated information on the International Research Workshop and other PhD related activities.

Workshop zum Thema „Ethnographic Research“

In diesem Jahr wird im Rahmen der VHB-ProDok Seminare ein Workshop zum Thema „Ethnographic Research“ angeboten. Dieser Kurs ist für Nachwuchswissenschaftler und findet vom 24. bis 27. September 2019 in Berlin statt. Das Ziel dieses Kurses ist es, den TeilnehmerInnen die methodologischen Grundlagen der Ethnographie zu vermitteln und sie dazu befähigen ethnographisch zu forschen. Der Kurs verschafft einen Überblick über die Geschichte der Ethnographie, ordnet diese innerhalb der qualitativen Sozialforschung ein und vermittelt die verschiedenen klassischen als auch neueren Ansätze der Ethnographie. Des Weiteren liegt der Fokus des Kurses auf dem Prozess des ethnographischen Forschens. Hierfür werden Schlüsselfragen des Forschungsdesigns, des Feldzugangs, der Datenerhebung und -analyse, der Rolle des Forschers im Feld sowie der Niederschrift der Ergebnisse behandelt. Der Kurs wird von Frau Prof. Dr. Jana Costas (Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt an der Oder), Frau Prof. Christina Garsten (Stockholm University) und von Herrn Prof. Dr. Hannes Krämer (Universität Duisburg-Essen) gelehrt.
