The special interest group was launched in September 2005. Membership of the group is free and currently open to any member of BAM who has an interest in research methodology and the practices affecting research.

Our membership reflects the wide diversity of management researchers and includes established academic staff; postdoctoral researchers; and PhD students; from old and new Universities in the UK, plus a growing number from other parts of the world. Members also come from the wide variety of sub-disciplines that combine to create the richness of the business and management fields, for example, from accounting and finance; organizational behaviour; operations management; marketing; and strategy.

The SIG also has a large and diverse steering committee that is consistent with its membership. The current steering committee is listed below.

  • Enable members to keep in touch with the contemporary debates around the nature of management research;
  • Publicize opportunities, events and knowledge about research methodology.
