Research is conducted in the hope of gaining new knowledge that will encourage public interest and will provide guidance to practitioners to see the benefits of using the results of the research.  Therefore, the ability to provide the results of qualitative studies such as micro-level interaction/analysis and present them to practitioners in a manner that stimulates scientific debate is important.  Furthermore, the field of qualitative research opens up a wide range of opportunities for the analysis of social phenomena and raises questions not only  “how much”, but also “why” and “how” changes are taking place in business and individual organisations? These issues should be discussed not only at a quantitative (statistical analysis) level, but also at qualitative level (efficiency, inclusion, action reflexing).  Issues such as the analytical objectives; types of research questions; data collection Instruments; sampling, etc. could be analysed.  

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • How to encourage researchers to share their reflections/good practices
  • Collaboration in joint research studies and projects
  • How to deliver/communicate the results to society more effectively
  • The impact of an inclusive society: Building on scientific literacy in the analysis of social phenomena, leading towards a scientifically responsible society
  • How to involve/activate society in applied research to improve the business environment
  • The impact of well-presented qualitative research results for organisations and individuals.
  • Employee engagement in change management processes (discussion on Case studies, Narratives; Focus groups, action research etc.)

One of the most frequently used tools to collect data in research is a questionnaire/survey. It is of crucial importance to ensure the validity and reliability of the questionnaire/survey since it will be employed to provide sound and replicable data that is mainly the basis of presenting accurate research findings.  Thus, for a questionnaire/survey to be regarded as acceptable, it must be evaluated from reliability and validity aspects. This mini-track would concentrate on the different types of the Validity and Reliability testing. And opening discussion on the new methods of the validation assessment.  

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Validity Methods
  • Survey Measurement Validation
  • Validity of Experimental Research Validation
  • Empirical Research Instruments
  • Questionnaire Designing
  • Questionnaire Validity
