The aim of AARM’s research development seminar series is to provide a forum for ABS faculty to develop their research activity through a mix of invited and internal speakers who focus on gaining insights into how to develop research careers in terms of disseminating and publishing research results, gaining research funding, maximising research impact and developing doctoral supervision. The seminars are focused on ECRs but open to all staff and third year doctoral students. We are open to suggestions for future events in areas of interest – please contact Nic Felton, n.felton@aston.ac.uk .

Please see the event list below for further information and to book your place.  All events take place 12.00 - 14.00 in ABS 6th floor meeting room 6.4/6.5 (unless otherwise stated).

Bill Foster, University of Alberta and the incoming Editor-in-Chief of AMLE, the top teaching & learning journal in business and management studies (ABS 4). He is currently ending his term as associate editor at AMLE in charge of essays, dialogues and interviews and maintains an associate editor role at Qualitative Research in Organizational Methods. His primary research interests in management education are service learning, ethics, undergraduate education, business school rankings, the debate between practice and research and corporate universities. He has taught a number of courses including organizational behaviour, strategy, business ethics, marketing and management. He primarily relies on a Socratic method of teaching by engaging his students through various techniques such as experiential learning, service learning, case studies and classroom discussion. Bill is looking forward to discussing learning & teaching related research projects with ABS staff, for example those that ECRs undertake as part of their PG Cert in Teaching & Learning in Higher Education. He will also discuss the publication process and some of the most important factors to remember when submitting to AMLE.

NB. this event will take place in the Adrian Cadbury lecture theatre.

Members of the Research and Knowledge Exchange (RKE) will present on the support RKE is able to provide to members of Aston Business School on research funding. Led by Dr Nat Golden, they will give information on RKE staff, what they do and how they support all aspects of research funding and applications. They will also provide crucial information on how to find funding, the peer review process, application approval process, research finance and post-award activities. There will be time for questions and an opportunity to book your follow-up 1-2-1 with Nat to help you develop a 3 year research plan.

This workshop is intended for anyone seeking to publish in a way that furthers their academic careers and/or to increase their chances of publishing articles in good journals. It is especially suitable for those who are at or near the start of their research careers. The presenter’s experience spans a 40-year period as an author, reviewer, mentor and journal editor in business and management, information systems and operational research/management science.

The workshop will cover all aspects from publication strategy through choice and targeting of journals, writing the article itself and the review process, and is intended to get you thinking about your next paper(s). The only aspect we won’t cover is doing the research itself!
