IndiKon at the AoM in Anaheim

Rick Vogel, Fabian Hattke and Isabel Bögner attended the Academy of Management (AoM) from the 05.-09th August 2016 in Anaheim.

We were delighted to present one of our research projects “How influence tactics of reviewers affect authors’ trust and commitment to peer review “. We would like to thank all participants in the discussion for the valuable feedback we received.

This year´s conference slogan was “Making organizations more meaningful”. The theme covered a wide-ranging spectrum of theoretical perspectives and methods.

For PhD students AoM is an excellent forum to get to know many international researchers with whom one can interchange research ideas and learn about future research streams. I can definitely recommend it to young researchers!

All in all it was a great experience!

Impressions of the Irish Academy of Management (IAM) 2016

The 19th Irish Academy of Management (IAM) Conference was held at the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business in Dublin from 31 August – 2 September 2016. The main conference theme was “Re-imagining business and the role of ethics”.

The conference provided a platform for a broad range of papers and interesting plenary panels, such as the keynote presentation titled “Towards a pluriversal world of academies of management”, which was held by Professors Nic Beech and Bill Cooke who represented the British Academy of Management.

The presented conference papers were anchored in a wide range of topics, such as “Policy, Legitimacy and ideology”, “Ethics and discourse”, “Leadership and culture”, “Clusters and networks” or “Business School Education”. In the last-mentioned session, I presented my paper “How innovative are editors: Evidence across journals and disciplines”.

Attending this conference was a nice and exciting experience and provided me again with some valuable insights for my own research!
