    Are you using content analysis techniques and applications in your research? Would you like to learn more about this widely applicable methodology and discuss your work with major scholars in the field? Please join us for the 14th annual Content Analysis PDW on Friday, August 5 at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting. The PDW will be live and in-person. However, virtual options may be available for Part 1 only.

    Part I of the PDW will provide an introduction to content and text analysis as a research methodology. Presenters will discuss appropriate applications, reliability and validity concerns, data curation, programming (particularly in Python and R), and different computer-aided content analysis tools. Experts will walk through examples of content analysis techniques from published research, address questions, and offer publishing tips.

    In Part II, experts and authors will interact in small-group roundtables to discuss the content, structure, techniques, and potential journal outlets of each proposal. Research proposals will be selected and shared for pre-reading among group members with similar interests in advance of the PDW.

    Part I is open to all attendees and does not require pre-registration.

    To attend Part II, please submit a proposal for review by July 14 to https://forms.gle/2boC7ZjW1nr6cJdq6.
