For the fourth year in a row, CARMA-AIB Research Methods Workshops were offered as a pre-conference activity at the AIB Annual Conference in Copenhagen. Seven workshops were offered as a partnership between the Consortium for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) and the Research Methods Special Interest Group of the Academy for International Business (AIB).

I participated in two workshops, namely, Writing Up Qualitative Research and Intermediate SEM: Model Evaluation.

Writing Up Qualitative Research Workshop Description:

What is the best way to write up the literature review for a paper based on qualitative research? How can you write up your findings while doing justice to a rich dataset? How do you craft your theoretical contribution? How do you balance 'showing' your data and 'telling' your theorisation of it? How can you solve the challenges of writing up a process-based study? The workshop covered these key questions for qualitative researchers seeking to publish journal articles based on their studies. The workshop was run in an interactive way, to provide participants the opportunity to share challenges, discuss different approaches, and obtain insights into writing up qualitative research for publication in international business journals.

Intermediate SEM: Model Evaluation Workshops Description:

The workshop assumed that participants had some introductory knowledge of Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). It covered how to build measurement models, including use of items and parcels as indicators. A second topic that was addressed was the use of CFA models for common method variance. Finally, the issue of model evaluation was discussed. Discussion focused on how these issues arise in organizational research. An emphasis was placed on what International Business (IB) researchers should know to conduct and review research that includes these three topics.
