Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD) Registered Reports Workshop

A registered report is a submission that includes the front end of (i.e., introduction, methods, and analysis plan) of a planned or  completed study, but not the results or discussion section. Such reports are evaluated by AMD on the basis of the importance of the topic, the merit of the selected analytic approach, methodological rigor and quality, and consistency with the editorial mission of AMD. Participants in this workshop will receive feedback from an AMD facilitator on a registered report in-progress. A number of reports developed in this workshop may be invited for submission to, and potential publication in AMD. More information on registered reports at AMD can be found here. Participants wishing to participate in the workshop should submit a draft of their report when they register for the conference.
