Institutional Membership Overview

2023-2024 CARMA Memberships provide research methods education for faculty and graduate students from management, organization studies, and other social science disciplines. CARMA Membership allows access to a series of Webcast Lectures and panel sessions, as well as unlimited on-demand access to the CARMA Video Library. Additional benefits include a 50% discount on registration fees for CARMA Short Courses/ Workshops and access to our Research Methods Education Program. Institutions from North America may only become Institutional Premium Members, while other institutions globally may become Institutional Premium Members or Institutional Basic Members. The content of the series available with these two memberships is the same, the only difference is that our events are delivered live for Institutional Premium Members, while for Institutional Basic Members live access is not allowed. For both memberships, recordings of most events are available on-demand. For either type of membership, once an institution becomes a member, access to CARMA will be available to any faculty or student at that institution at no charge to them as individuals. Faculty and students will create their own CARMA User Accounts by registering for account setup using their institution-provided email address.
