    If you are considering working with sport data, you cannot miss this AOM's Virtual PDW (Live - Synchronous) that will bring together a selection of authors and editors who recently published in top journals using sport data to advance management theory.
    Our PDW will combine hands-on insights, state-of-the-art research presentations, senior and junior scholars' discussion, and participants' development of novel research proposals.
    Our PDW will tackle the following questions:
    • What kinds of theories can be tested with sport data? Which sport settings are better suited for specific research questions and designs?
    • What existing theoretical problems could be tackled with sports data? How could a research agenda look like?
    • What are the typical challenges that scholars using sport data face during the publication process at top-tier management journals? How can scholars overcome them?
    • Where can scholars find and how can they obtain sport data for research purposes? What are appropriate methods for testing theories using sport data?
    Building on successful editions of this workshop at AOM in the previous four years, this two-part PDW will (1) bring together a panel of scholars to share experience in publishing management research with sport data and (2) provide developmental support in the second part of the workshop for scholars that are in the process of using sport data in their projects or who plan to use sport as a setting to study their research questions.

    While the first part of this PDW will be open to everyone with no registration required, those who wish to join the Part II of the workshop need to submit a full paper (40 pages max as per AOM Conference format guidelines) or a proposal (max 5 pages, single-spaced, excluding references and tables). Participation to the first part is not a mandatory requirement to submit to the second part, and vice versa. Please send the submissions at this link.
    Deadline to submit you work for the Part II of the workshop: August 3rd ET.
