The Organization and Management Theory (OMT) Division of the Academy of Management invites original paper proposals for a paper development workshop targeted at scholars studying non-traditional and understudied (non-western) settings across different (micro and macro) domains.
Increasingly, a growing number of scholars study organizational phenomena located in areas outside the Western region. Although this globalization of scholarship presents a valuable opportunity for extending and challenging organizational theory-that has historically been developed in, and focused on, Western contexts-it also throws up unique challenges such as access to research sites, collecting and analyzing data, and persuading reviewers and editors, among others.
Recognizing the value of such work, the OMT Division has been striving to bring research platforms to the doorstep of scholars engaged in such research. The "Doing Organizational Research Around the World," a Paper Development Workshop in Singapore on Friday, 8 December 2023 is one such initiative, aimed at, but not limited to, scholars in the Asia-Pacific regions.
With this PDW, the OMT Division aims to provide a regional pop-up platform for organizational scholars who conduct research in underrepresented regions to showcase their work and obtain access to feedback, tools, and networks. The PDW includes presentations by panelists, paper feedback sessions, and facilitated conversations on topics such as: (1) developing organizational scholarship using global settings, (2) mentoring for research based in international contexts, and (3) strategies for overcoming challenges and exploiting opportunities for high quality organizational research using diverse settings. Mentors and panelists include leading scholars and editors from the region, and from across multiple domains (OB, OT, Strategy, Entrepreneurship, and so on). Confirmed panelists include Devasheesh Bhave (SMU), Arijit Chatterjee (ESSEC), Guoli Chen (INSEAD), Vibha Gaba (INSEAD), Sam Garg (ESSEC), Reddi Kotha (SMU), Mukta Kulkarni (IIM-Bangalore), Jayanth Narayanan (NUS), and Yutaka Yamauchi (Kyoto University).
The PDW is open to all scholars-senior/mid-career/junior/doctoral candidates- who conduct research in underrepresented regions anywhere in the world. There is no registration fee to attend this workshop, but participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.
