Please consider joining our interactive discussion on methodological innovations for socio-political risk research at AOM 2021's Live Open Caucus "Methodological innovations for socio-political risk research" (session 647, August 1, 15:00-16:30 EDT).
The caucus targets scholars whose research include discipline-specific and interdisciplinary methodologies for studying socio-political risks (SPRs) and to provide a more granular understanding of methodological issues in complex, unpredictable and fast-changing global contexts.
This caucus meeting intends to offer a platform and forum for scholars to facilitate an interdisciplinary conversation over novel methodologies in examining SPRs and MNE strategic responses to the complexities of international and national operating environments. Considering the strong research interest in socio-political risks among AOM members, we'd like to use this caucus to connect the scholars who are specifically interested in the (1) the systematic examination of pros and cons of a range of novel qualitative and quantitative methodologies for advancement of SPR knowledge; (2) the identification of state-of-the-art analytical tools across disciplines to study different types of SPR in diverse contexts; and (3) theoretical enrichment of SPR scholarship with appropriate choices and applications of innovative methodological approaches.
In parallel, we hope the caucus will function as a proposal development platform for potential contributors to develop ideas for a special issue at the Journal of International Management (recent CiteScore is 6.1, impact factor is 4.645) on novel methodologies for studying socio-political risks (SI-JIM). We will present objectives and selection criteria for SI-JIM with new extended submission deadline of November 1, 2021, and publication in 2022. However, we emphasize that participation in the caucus is not a requirement nor a guarantee for a paper's acceptance to the special issue at JIM. All papers submitted to the special issue at JIM must go through the standard double-blind peer review process. To learn more about SI-JIM, please follow this link: https://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-international-management/call-for-papers/novel-methodological-approaches-to-study-socio-political-risks .
The caucus will be interactive with plenty of time for Q&As.#AOM2021@AOM
