The Organization & Management Theory Division is hosting a “Global PDW” again at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management, titled “Doing Organizational Research Around the World”. The objective of the workshop is to facilitate networking and discussion around the unique challenges and opportunities of planning, implementing, and publishing high quality organizational research using international settings. The PDW is designed to be an interactive session where participants will interact with scholars that have successfully conducted organizational research using data from around the world including Africa, China, India, Israel, and Russia. The participants will also get a chance to get feedback on their own research in small group setting.

We will discuss a range of issues in a panel discussion format and get feedback on individual research proposals in small groups, including topics such as managing access to international research settings and data; sourcing funding; issues related to internal and external validity of your research; writing and publishing research using new and understudied settings; managing the review process. The discussions will be followed by an informal lunch and further conversations.
