The 2022 SMS Research Methods Interest Group Doctoral and Junior Faculty Consortium will take place over three sessions.
In this second session, Brent Goldfarb (University of Maryland), Andrew King (Boston University), and Sandeep Pillai (Bocconi University) discuss how current reporting norms fail to take into account fundamental assumptions of frequentist statistics. They review new methods of reporting that take into account the challenges of archival and experimental data analysis. They discuss the limitations of pre-registration and replication in strategic management research and discuss potential solutions including abduction/Inference to the best explanation using historical methods to complement statistical methods and epistemic mapping.
