AMD publishes management research guided by empirical abduction and induction, or in other words, studies which use data exploration to:
- Surface significant new or emerging phenomenon using any number of empirical approaches including rich description, quantitative construct validation, and/or empirical taxonomic analyses.
- Identify and explore surprising relationships using rigorous qualitative and/or quantitative methods in order to develop plausible explanations for those relationships and provide a grounded basis for innovative theorizing.
- Studies that leverage the data to offer plausible explanations for the mechanisms underlying these relations and/or the conditions governing them are likely to be published as full-length papers.
- Studies exposing stylized facts and providing evidence of their consistent and non-spurious nature without examining mediators or moderators likely to be published as “Discoveries-in-Brief".
- Leverage original, secondary or “big” data and any number of alternative approaches (including lab and field/quasi-experiments, meta-analyses and replication studies) in order to offer empirically-driven insights into and/or a plausible resolution of critical anomalies and discrepant findings.
