In Renewing Research Practice prominent scholars in organization studies share their experiences in overcoming research obstacles, working with collaborators, and balancing professional and personal life demands. This book, driven by the scholars' stories of triumph and frustration, will help others in similar situations find their way to successful research renewal.
The book is organized around a series of chapters and commentaries that invites the reader to interact with the ideas presented. Interspersed between the chapters, the volume editors discuss broader issues important to the development of a successful research practice—the nature of the scholarly community, ethics, the changing terrain of organization studies, the intoxication of the research journey, rethinking the notion of discipline, and a reflection on the American-centrism of management research. Of special interest to scholars and researchers in organization studies, this book will assist all social scientists, at whatever stage of the research journey they are in.
