CARMA’s 25th Year Anniversary Special Celebration

Research Methods Resources

Apr. 14, 2023

On April 14, CARMA will host a special webcast celebrating our 25 years of providing research methods education for organizational/social sciences. The theme of this event is Resources for Research Methods and Analysis, and its goals are to promote scholarship on research methods topics, increase awareness of academic communities supporting research methods, and to honor CARMA Short Course Instructors who have contributed to research methods education through their efforts.

This event will include an Editor’s Panel featuring representatives from top journals that publish research methods articles, including Organizational Research Methods, Journal of Management, and Journal of Business and Psychology. Presentations will include an overview of policies for research methods submissions, review practices for these articles, recently published and in-press papers, common shortcomings of submissions, and suggestions to authors preparing to submit research methods papers for journal review. A question/answer session will also be included.

It will also include a Communities for Research Methods Panel featuring representatives from divisions/interest groups from management professional associations that emphasize research methods. These groups include the Research Methods Division of the Academy of Management, the Research Methods Shared Interest Group of the Academy of International Business, and the Research Methods Community of the Strategic Management Society. Presentations will include domain statements of the groups, information on conference programs, special education events hosted, and other resources of interest to those seeking research methods education.

The third component of the event will honor CARMA’s Short Course Instructors. These instructors have offered over 350 courses since 2001, and since 2017 over 5000 spots have been filled in our in-person and on-line courses. After CARMA recognizes their service, instructors will share why they teach for CARMA, what they enjoy most from their CARMA work, and what they think potential attendees should know about CARMA short courses. CARMA will also share examples from participants about how things they learned in short courses helped with their doctoral education and/or paper submission success. Finally, select instructors will be available in a break-out room for an Ask-the-Experts Session.
