    Who Can Apply? Anyone interested in research methodology can apply, especially (1) doctoral students seeking to deepen their 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 (RM) Division to Participate? Yes. If you are not currently a member of the RM Division, you will pledge to join the RM Division when you next renew your Academy of Management membership. You can either change your two divisions to include the RM Division or you can add an additional division membership for only $11. Information on adding a division can be found at this link.

    What Will I Need to Complete Registration for the Consortium? General professional information and a short bio (less than one page) that includes any specific interests in research methods. If you are a graduate student, you will also be asked to provide the name and email address of a faculty advisor or mentor who supports your application. The application deadline is June 3, 2020.
