    Dear MOC division and broader management community, 

    Why spend time and resources collecting data when you could generate scholarly insights from novel sources of data that already exist? 

    Come join us at AOM this year for a PDW on "Identifying, Accessing, and Utilizing Unconventional Sources of Archival Data" (see description and link below to the AOM session)!

    The session will begin with a lineup of incredible scholars from micro and macro perspectives. These scholars will share their experiences using unconventional archival data in their own research:

    • Andrew Carton, University of Pennsylvania (see Carton, 2018, on putting a man on the moon)
    • Christi Lockwood, University of Virginia (see Lockwood, Glynn, & Giorgi, 2021 on the luxury hotel industry)
    • Andrew Nelson, University of Oregon (see Anthony, Nelson, & Tripsas, 2016 on the synthesizer industry) 

    After these panelists present their perspectives, PDW participants will then get together with a group of scholars from within their discipline (OB folks with OB folks, ENT folks with ENT folks, etc.) to consider possibilities for  identifying, accessing, and utilizing unconventional archival data sources within their respective domains. We will then switch it up and have participants get together with scholars from different divisions (STR folks with OB folks and ENT folks) to reap the creative benefits of diversity. 

    Come join us for this fun and interdisciplinary PDW packed with lessons on how to leverage unconventional sources of data that already exists out in the world waiting to be analyzed. You won't want to miss out! 

    The session can be found at this LINK HERE

    Please feel free to forward this to those who might be interested.
