The sessions will be interactive, mixing lectures, discussions and workshops, run from 19th to 22nd March 2019 to cover the following topics by blending theoretical considerations and practical suggestions/exercises to develop your ability to conduct research and to publish referred journal articles.
How to choose a research topic (lecture and workshop)
Key elements of an abstract (lecture and workshop)
The morning session will focus on developing an understanding of how to choose a research topic in terms of its significance, novelty, curiosity, scope and action ability. You will be expected to apply what has been discussed in class to develop a research topic based on an incomplete paper submitted to Industrial Marketing Management (IMM) (ABS3).
The afternoon session will discuss: What is an abstract? Why is it important? What should be included in an abstract? And the structured abstract. Then you will be expected to write an abstract based on the IMM paper.
How to write an introduction (lecture and workshop)
Formulating a research question (lecture and workshop)
The morning session will focus on developing an understanding of an introduction, its importance, and its key elements. You will be expected to apply what has been discussed in class to critically analyse the Introduction section of the IMM paper.
The afternoon session will discuss how to formulate a research question and you will be expected to develop research questions for the incomplete IMM paper. Additionally, this session will discuss the selection and development of a methodology consistent with the research question.
Grounding hypotheses (lecture and workshop)
Discussing the implication of your research (lecture and workshop)
The morning session will include developing a theoretical framework/hypotheses that will be underpinned by relevant theories and concepts, and any relevant philosophical foundations or concepts, which is coherent and appropriate to the research question. You will be expected to apply what has been discussed in class to develop a few hypotheses based on the incomplete IMM paper.
The afternoon session will discuss how to develop the discussion section of a research paper. Again, you will be expected to develop the relevant section of the incomplete IMM paper.
By now, you should have developed an understanding of research design in general and how to write a research paper in particular. Thus, it is time for you to apply the knowledge and understanding of research design to critically review articles submitted to journals (ABS2 &3). Two real papers will be used for this purpose.I will demonstrate how to criticise the first one with you and you will be expected to review the second article yourself. This exercise will help you to develop your own understanding and academic skill to conduct research, to write a research paper, and/or to review articles for referred journals or conferences.
Reviewing a paper submitted to Information Technology & People (ABS3)
Reviewing a paper submitted to International Journal of Information Management (ABS2)
