The International QCA Paper Development Workshop 2019 provides a unique platform for early stage researchers working on papers involving QCA to meet QCA experts, get feedback on their on-going research, and learn about the latest methodological developments in QCA. The workshop is interdisciplinary and interactive and allows for in-depth discussions and individual feedback from internationally renowned QCA scholars.
We invite submission of abstracts from researchers applying QCA in various domains (e.g., management, political science, sociology, evaluation studies, international relations, medicine, and health) as well as policy and business consultants using QCA in their work.
This year’s workshop faculty includes among others the following internationally renowned QCA scholars from various disciplines with substantive experience in using, developing, and teaching QCA:
The International QCA Paper Development Workshop primarily consists of roundtable forums for participants to receive detailed feedback from QCA experts on their ongoing research projects. The roundtable forums will take place in small groups with approximately two QCA experts and three to four participants to allow for in-depth discussions.
The workshop program will also include two focused sessions providing participants with an overview of good practices for implementing a QCA analysis and for reporting a QCA analysis in article-length format. We will round up the workshop with a keynote speech from an established QCA scholar including drinks to interact and socialize.
Registration deadline: May 13
To participate in the workshop, please upload an extended abstract of 1,000-1,500 words via the submission form by 17 March 2019. Your abstract should summarize your study’s topical area, theoretical background, research gap and question, and include details about the data, analytical strategy (for empirical papers), and preliminary results.
A panel of QCA experts will review all submissions and evaluate their fit with the workshop according to clarity of purpose, methodological rigor, and innovative character of the research.
