Each year the European Conference on Research Methodology for Business and Management Studies (ECRM) provides a forum to meet and exchange views on our lives as researchers and academics, with others who understand the world in which we live. Over a few days, with those impassioned with all that is and could be methodology, we hear the words ‘paradigm’, ‘mixed methods’, ‘research strategies’ and many more, both in the formal sessions and later around meal tables and elsewhere. For many participants this conference has become an eagerly awaited stop on the personal voyage of discovery that is ‘research’.

Publication opportunity

Papers presented at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings. ECRM Proceedings have an ISBN and are accredited on various lists. Click the star in the right hand box to view these accreditations. Papers will also be considered for publication in a special issue of the Electronic Journal of Business Research Methods. (ISSN: 1477-029) The latest issue of the journal is available to read online.

The conference committee is attracted by both theoretical and practical papers on many subjects, as well as by innovative ideas and experiences. We are also interested in case studies that demonstrate how research strategies have been applied and the lessons learned. We welcome contributions on many topics, presenting a range of scholarly approaches. theoretical and empirical papers employing qualitative, quantitative and critical methods are eagerly awaited. Action research, case studies and work-in-progress/posters are welcomed approaches. PhD Research, proposals for roundtable discussions, non-academic contributions and product demonstrations based on the main themes are also invited.
