    Dear colleagues,

    We would like to draw your attention to the following PDW at the Academy of Management Meeting 2023: QUALITATIVE COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS (QCA): A SET-ANALYTIC APPROACH TO STUDYING CONFIGURATIONS

    Part 1-3

    The PDW includes 3 Parts. If you have no or only a little knowledge of, and experience with, QCA you can join us during Part 1 to learn the basic "nuts and bolts" of QCA and configurational logic and understand if this might be the right tool for your research project. If you are also interested in current methodological issues and advances in QCA, join us during Part 2! For those of you who'd like to get feedback on one of your ongoing QCA research papers, join us for Part 3!


    If you're joining us for Part 1 and Part 2, you do not need to register (PDW open to all conference attendees). If you'd like to participate in Part 3, please submit an extended abstract of 1,500-2,000 words to by 14 July 2023. In your abstract, please summarize your study's topical area, theoretical background, research gap, and question, and include details about the data, analytical strategy (for empirical papers), and preliminary results. Please also indicate your target journal and add a few questions that you would like the reviewers to address. A panel of QCA experts will review all submissions and evaluate their fit with the PDW according to the clarity of purpose, methodological rigor, and innovative character of the research. We will inform you shortly, by 30 July 2023, about your opportunities to participate in Part 3.
