    15th Annual OB Research Incubator at AOM Annual Conference 

    *NB: Delivery will be fully in-person and in small roundtable groups scheduled on site in Boston*

    We invite you to submit a research proposal for the 15th Annual "OB Research Incubator," a Professional Development Workshop that provides an exciting opportunity for researchers to receive constructive feedback and guidance from senior OB scholars and ignite connections and ongoing dialogue around topics of common interest. This session is open to both junior and senior scholars who are conducting research on OB-related topics.

    During this session, participants will meet in a small roundtable group setting with leading OB scholars, who will provide direct and specific feedback on your research project. Feedback will be particularly focused on helping you address the challenges you are currently facing in bringing a project to fruition.

    Pre-approval of a research proposal is required for registration. Proposals are due June 25, 2023.

    To increase engagement with the session and value of the feedback, proposals will be shared with the other participant(s) assigned to a specific facilitator. If you do not want your proposal shared this way, please specifically note that on the submission form.

    Proposal requirements

    Please limit submissions to 6 double-spaced pages (not including references) and include the following sections:

    • Brief abstract and four keywords

    • Overview of the research

    • Research topic

    • Conceptual framework

    • Research questions

    • Methods

    • Challenges (these are the areas on which you would like to focus discussion). Please list specific questions you'd like a facilitator to answer.

    Please submit your research proposal by Sunday, June 25, 2023, using the following webform (you will be able to edit your submission at any time prior to the deadline):


    Once your proposal is approved, we will send you the registration code. At that point, interested participants will need to register online at the AOM PDW website. To maintain an intimate setting, we will accept only limited number of submissions based on the quality of the proposal, fit with the expertise of our facilitator panel, and timeliness.
