The 2022 SMS Research Methods Community Doctoral and Junior Faculty Consortium will take place over three sessions. In this first session, two presentations will be shown.
The first will be from Paul Hünermund of Copenhagen Business School, who will present on "Using Directed Acyclical Graphs (DAGs) to clarify Control Variables and Identification." DAGs are a powerful tool to clarify threats to identification as well as when controls are good or when they are “bad”, and should be in any empirical researcher’s toolkit.
The second will be from Richard Haans of the Rotterdam School of Management, who will present on "Topic Modeling: Rendering New Theory from Textual Data." Topic modeling has been increasingly used to analyze textual data. These methods can enable scholars to develop better understandings of strategic decisions.
Both speakers have provided reading materials ahead of the webinar and reading them ahead of time is highly recommended:
