Quotation Aichhorn, Nathalie. 2012. Summary of AoM 2012 PDW on: "Encouraging Pluralism: Institutionalizing Best Practices for Publishing Qualitative Research".




While qualitative research has seen an increased popularity in international business (IB) research in recent years, there remain considerable challenges regarding qualitative submissions to IB journals. One reason for this seems to be the lack of best practices on how to write up and assess qualitative research. In order to advance the development of such practices at the 2012 AoM conference in Boston, Massachusetts, the PDW brought together qualitative scholars and editors from IB journals, including Mary Yoko Brannen of the Journal of International Business Studies, Kevin G. Corley of the Academy of Management Journal, Joep Cornelissen of the Journal of Management Studies and John W. Slocum of the Journal of World Business, in a panel discussion chaired by Rebecca Piekkari (Aalto University). They discussed the key challenges faced by qualitative submissions to IB journals and shared their insights into how to overcome them. This note will briefly summarize the key points of the discussion. Firstly, it outlines the research purpose of qualitative research and the implications this has for reporting such studies. It also discusses key challenges facing, and misperceptions regarding, qualitative submissions with regard to data collection methods, data sources, coding and analysis, and presentation of the results.
