Ph.D. Prep Panel:
Replication Studies and Doctoral Training

Replication Studies and Doctoral Training

Dr. Jose Cortina (Virginia Commonwealth University)

April 5, 2024
Noon EDT


Replication studies are increasingly recognized as essential to building evidence-based management theory. The workshop will introduce doctoral students to the different types of replications and their value for validating and building evidence-based theories incrementally. We will also outline how replication can teach doctoral students fundamental research methods skills, support academic networking, and provide publication experiences. Finally, we will introduce the Advancement of Replications Initiative in Management, which coordinates the joint execution and publication of replication studies by teams of doctoral students, faculty mentors, and replication-minded scholars. Presentations, panel discussions, and a Q&A segment will also offer participants opportunities to receive specific advice on how to design, execute, report, and frame a replication study for publication in top journals.
