The Organization & Management Theory Division offered the “Doing Research Around the World” professional development workshop (PDW) at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Boston. This PDW facilitated networking and discussion around the unique challenges and opportunities of planning, implementing, and publishing high-quality organizational research using international settings, and helped create bridges among scholars across the world. 2019 was the second consecutive year that this highly successful workshop has been offered as a permanent part of the OMT annual program.


This year, we had 36 participants around the world and 10 senior panelists whose research utilized data from around the world, including Africa, China, India, Israel, and Russia. The PDW included a panel discussion session followed by a roundtable session where participants discussed their individual papers and received feedback from panelists and participants. The panel discussion topics included managing access to international research settings and data; funding sources; issues related to internal and external validity of research; writing and publishing research using new and understudied settings; and managing the review process.


This year, the senior panelists who joined the workshop were:

  • Brandy Aven (Carnegie Mellon University)
  • Yujin Jeong American University)
  • Anna Kim (McGill University)
  • Rajiv Kozhikode (Simon Fraser University)
  • Christopher Marquis (Cornell University)
  • Sun Hyun Park (Seoul National University)
  • Jordan Seigel (University of Michigan)
  • Tal Simons (Tilburg University)
  • Andrew Spicer (University of South Carolina)
  • Sai Yayavaram (IIMB)
  • Christopher B. Yenkey (University of South Carolina)


We would like to thank all the participants and panelists who made this workshop a success.

Thank you, and we hope to see you again next year!
