Dear colleagues,Apologies for cross-posting.You are invited to participate in a Research Methods PDW offered at AOM 2020.This workshop is for people who are interested in writing about methods but don't know where to start. The purpose of this workshop is to help neophytes to methods research get started on writing methods papers and is open to all AOM members, to all types of research methods (i.e., quantitative and qualitative), and to all levels of analysis (i.e., micro, meso, and macro research).I. The first part of the PDW features a panel discussion from experienced methodologists. We are seeking your questions. Possible topics may include how to address difficulties that arise in writing methods papers and developing ideas for manuscripts, but may also cover advice for publishing, career planning, and teaching methods. Panelists' responses will be recorded and posted for the AOM meeting for viewing asynchronously. Please submit your questions to Anna Zabinski (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Truit Gray(email@example.com) by July 20th, 2020.II. The second part of the PDW is a paper development workshop. Those interested in Part 2 are encouraged to submit an abstract (not to exceed 300 words) describing an idea for a methods paper. Participants who submit an abstract will be paired with a mentor possessing relevant expertise on their paper idea. Participants will be able to ask questions of their assigned mentor, and mentors will offer advice and guidance directed towards helping participants develop their idea into a paper. Abstracts should be emailed to Anna Zabinski (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Truit Gray(email@example.com) by August 15, 2020.This PDW is endorsed by Organizational Research Methods, the Consortium for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA), and Sage Publications.
