Dr Richard Adams is Reader in Entrepreneurship at the Bettany Centre for Entrepreneurship, Cranfield University, and has previously held positions at Universities of Surrey and Exeter, Imperial College London as well as with the UK Cochrane Centre.

ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Many areas of management practice are developing fast and so exploratory research is often appropriate. Case study research is an important methodology for exploratory research; to study phenomena and develop theory. Unfortunately, case research is often applied poorly, resulting in many journals rejecting case-based papers. This workshop aims to give doctoral and early-career researchers new perspectives about when and how to apply case research.
The workshop includes material from recent studies in the innovation management field (Goffin et al, 2019; Perks and Roberts, 2013) but will go further, covering ongoing research into how to craft case research for publication. The online format will include presentations, discussions, examples from exemplary papers, and practical recommendations on how case study research can be prepared for publication in top journals.
