“Meta‐analysis: Beyond Data Synthesis” by Professor Marc van Essen
STRATEGY PHD WORKSHOP
Professor Marc van Essen
Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation
University of St. Gallen
This workshop is open to all PhD candidates and faculty members. However, we assume that participants have some basic knowledge of regression analysis and can interpret its results.
The workshop aims to teach participants how to develop coding questionnaires and code studies. It also shows how to perform data analysis, draw conclusions, and present findings, thus giving some indications on how to get published in a top journal. Moreover, we theoretically discuss and empirically show the benefits and limitations of meta‐analysis. We go through the following steps of meta‐analytical research:
1. Selection of topic and research proposition;
2. Collection of studies;
3. Development of coding questionnaires;
4. Coding of studies;
5. Analysis of the data, drawing conclusions, and presentation of findings;
We will also provide explanations on how to get your work published in a journal.
