Key Benefits: (1) Opportunity to learn from and interact with leading scholars and methodologists; (2) all sessions (except the consortium reception) occur outside of the AOM conference time frame; (3) online participation; and (4) no rule limiting the number of participants per school for this consortium (e.g., we may accept multiple doctoral students and faculty members from the same program).

Who Can Apply? Anyone interested in research methodology can apply, especially (1) doctoral students seeking deepening expertise in research methodology; and (2) junior faculty seeking professional development. All participants will require a computer and a good Internet connection.

Do I Need to Be a Methods Researcher to Participate? No! The consortium is open to researchers of all areas who wish to strengthen and develop their methodological skills.

Do I Need to Be a Member of the Research Methods Division to Participate? Yes.
