The objective of the course is to use experiential learning to help Ph.D. students and researchers maximize their publication potential. In this course, we will discuss the major factors involved in developing high-quality research and understand how to increase the chances that the research will be published in top-tier journals (focus on ABS4/FT journals).
Ph.D. students and researchers engaging in quantitative research with some basic experience in the field who wish to optimize their efforts and increase the likelihood of publishing in high-impact journals (ABS4/FT).
Learning outcomes of the curricular unit (LO)
- LO1. Improve the understanding of the process of developing research that maximizes publication potential in the fields of marketing, management, and information systems.
- LO2. Understand the steps required in building a persuasive argument using theoretical arguments and empirical observations.
- LO3. Develop greater understanding on how to address and respond to reviewers.
This course will prioritize experiential learning. Course participants will be asked to read articles from ABS4/FT journals and chapters associated with the course topics, then apply the concepts learned on practical exercises in their area of expertise, and finally implement them in their own projects. The typical class will include a short exposition of topics, discussion of readings, short exercises, and the discussion and presentation of work developed at home. Finally, a portion of the workshop will be dedicated to giving students detailed feedback on their individual research projects.
This course will be taught in English.
