Designing qualitative research for high-ranked international journals


Dr. René Chester Goduscheit
(Department of Business Development and Technology, Aarhus University)


I208 (Rokko-dai 1st Campus, Main Building 2F)


Most high-ranked international journals have an implicit or explicit bias towards quantitative research. As an editor-in-chief at Creativity and Innovation Management, René Chester Goduscheit has made some reflections on how this can be –and (more importantly) whether this can changed. Often, studies on the basis of qualitative research have a tendency of being less convincing and more anecdotical than large-N quantitative research. However, a substantial part of these challenges can be overcome by a proper research design. The seminar will also introduce recent methodology developments like Qualitative Comparative Analysis that potentially can alleviate the challenges of publishing qualitative studies.
