The European Conference on Research Methodology for Business and Management Studies (ECRM 2010) is an opportunity for academics to share the latest thinking on research strategies, tactics and paradigms. The variety of methods in common use and the continuing debate on what constitutes ‘new knowledge’ makes this a lively field and one which affects all academics and others involved in business research. The search for new ideas, new methodologies and even new paradigms is both endless and fascinating. This conference offers an opportunity to engage with contemporary thinking in Business research and join in the sometimes lively debates, inside and outside of the formal sessions, that are a regular feature of the conference.
As in previous years, the conference committee is interested in both theoretical and practical papers concerning research models and methods. We are also interested in case studies that demonstrate how research strategies have been applied and about the lessons learned therefrom. Papers will be welcome on a wide range of research paradigms, including critical analysis, discourse analysis, adaptive structuration theory, ethnography, ontology, epistemology, conjoint analysis, cluster analysis, naturalistic enquiry, case studies, hermeneutic methods, critical systemic thinking, hermeneutic dialectics, structural equation modelling, observational studies, participatory appraisals, etc. Research in progress, case studies, poster submissions and proposals for roundtable discussions based on the main themes are also invited. Practitioner contributions and product demonstrations relevant to the conference are also invited
