We are delighted to host the 13th European Conference on Business Research Methods at Cass Business School in London. We are long standing members of this wonderful community of researchers. Research methods in business has proved a dynamic and developing subject over the last decade and we have enjoyed the yearly meetings of friends and colleagues to learn about new ideas and refinements to well used methods.


We look forward to meeting regular attendees. We extend a particular welcome to new researchers who want to explore with us the further reaches of this dynamic subject.

Abstract submission is now closed.  The review panel has completed the selection process of abstract submitted before the deadline and a list of the abstracts selected for submission as full papers can now be seen on the Abstracts Selected webpage. To protect the integrity of the double-blind peer review process, abstract titles and author details are separated. Titles are listed in no particular order and author names are listed alphabetically by lead author surname.


The conference organisers have received multiple requests to extend the abstract submission deadline. The Conference Committee has kindly agreed to extend the Abstract Submission deadline until Friday 20th December 2013


In addition to the main conference topics, the advisory group invites suggestions to the following mini tracks.


The conference was launched at the close of ECRM 2013 in Guimaraes, Portugal. The Abstract submission deadline is 25 November 2013.  (Extended until 20 December 2013) Full papers are due not later than 13 January 2014, however, if your paper is ready before, we would be happy to receive it as this enables us to manage the review process more effectively. This is of particular importance if you will need a visa to attend the conference.

Note to Authors: Due to the large number of papers expected for this conference, the committee prefers that an author presents only one paper. However, if multiple papers are accepted for publication and presentation, each paper requires a separate registration fee. Author registration (including payment) must be completed by 12 May 2014.
