Multiple linear regression (MLR) is one of the most useful and used methodological tools in the social sciences. This webinar will strengthen attendees’  conceptual knowledge and practical skills in MLR further through a series of topics presented: (a) relationships between descriptive statistics, visualization, and MLR; (b) conducting MLR with interaction and quadratic terms; (c) useful MLR reporting standards; and (d) MLR as the basis for path analysis, factor analysis (EFA, CFA, SEM), and multilevel modeling.

Qualitative research in the organizational sciences has witnessed the rise of analytical templates: “systematic, simplified, and repeatable approaches to data collection, analysis, and interpretation that have become standardized and legitimized through enactment” (Köhler, Smith, and Bhakoo, 2021, p. 2). In this webcast, we will discuss the nature of templates and the challenges template use can create for novel and plausible theorizing. Participants will be provided with concrete alternatives to analyzing and reporting data that move beyond templates. The webcast is based on insights from papers published in the 2022 feature topic of Organizational Research Methods (ORM) on ‘Templates in Qualitative Research’ (issue 25.2).

Facets of the research process are often taught and discussed in isolation. I will offer an integrative perspective. I will argue that research should originate from an important question that matters to scholars and/or practitioners – that drives impact. Then, the facets of the research process including sampling, research design, measurement, and analysis need to be integrated and aligned with the research question for optimal value. These facets drive inferences concerning external, internal, construct, and statistical conclusion, respectively, as elements of a unified validity framework. I will then differentiate and illustrate different types of multi-methods and mixed-methods designs suitable for different purposes.

Insufficient effort responding (IER) occurs when some study participants fail to comply with instructions and instead respond carelessly or randomly. This webcast will solidify attendees’ conceptual understanding of how the presence of IER in survey data can impact research findings. We will discuss different approaches researchers can adopt to detect IER in survey data, considering practical constraints on the effectiveness of these approaches.

When investigating relationships of interest empirically, researchers typically must make many decisions (e.g., about sampling frames, variable measurements, model specifications, and analytical approaches). These decisions amount to researcher degrees of freedom that may affect both the resulting estimates of a relationship and the respective inferences drawn. In this webcast, we will discuss multiverse analysis as a tool that can help estimate, illustrate, and investigate the impact of researcher degrees of freedom on estimated relationships. Webinar attendees will gain insight into (1) the overall idea of multiverse analysis, (2) how to run it, and (3) the value the tool offers for judging the robustness and reliability of estimates of interest.

Topic: Writing our Way out of the Reliability Crisis in Strategy

Jan. 20, 2023

He focuses on such questions as how do markets and employer policies affect incentives to discover new commercially valuable technologies and when is it best to commercialize them through new technology-based firms? Why do radical technologies appear to be the domain of startups? And how big was the dot.com boom? Copies of Dr. Goldfarb’s publications and working papers have been downloaded over 1200 times.

CARMA’s 25th Year Anniversary Special Celebration

Topic: 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 MethodsJournal 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.
