NORDLOG Doctoral Day

NORDLOG Doctoral Day is organized on the 7th of June, 2017.

Agenda

The purpose of the Doctoral Day is to enable participants to gain knowledge, exchange insights and to network with senior researchers and fellow PhD students coming from different backgrounds. 

The Doctoral Day will address two major themes – (1) “What is good research?” and (2) “How to move from idea to manuscript” The agenda of the Doctoral Day is organized accordingly:

“What is it good research?”

Professor Dag Näslund will give the participants the opportunity to discuss and reflect upon the criteria of good research in terms of relevance, rigor and novelty. In addition, students will gain insights into the differences between research in different regions and how the own research can be profiled for a successful career within academia.
An interactive discussion will be held, in order to share views and exchange opinions. For this section there are two papers suggested to read:

  • Toffel, M., W. (2016). "Enhancing the Practical Relevance of Research." Harvard Business School Working Paper, No. 16-082.
  • Näslund, D. (2008). "Atcion Reserach: Rigorous Research Approach or Scandinavian Excuse for Consulting?", Northern lights in Logistics & Supply Chain Management, Eds Jan Stentoft Arlbjörn, Arni Halldorsson, Marianne Jahre and Karen Spens, Copenhagen Business School Press.

“How to Move from the Idea to the Manuscript: Some Ideas for Progressing Manuscripts”

Professor Alexander Ellinger, the editor of IJPDLM, together with Professor Patrick Jonsson from Chalmers University of Technology, will provide insights into the process of transferring the research idea into a manuscript.

A discussion will be held under the topic “Do you agree/disagree with Alan McKinnon's points in "Starry-eyed II: the logistics journal ranking debate revisited" forthcoming in IJPDLM 47/6?” For this section the students are expected to read the suggested papers:

  • McKinnon, A. (2017) "Starry-eyed II: the logistics journal ranking debate revisited", International Journal of Physical Distribution & Logistics Management, 47 (6).
  • Tellis, G.J., 2017. Interesting and impactful research: on phenomena, theory, and writing. Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, 45(1), 1-6.
  • Hauser, J.R., 2017. Phenomena, theory, application, data, and methods all have impact. Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, 45(1), 7-9.
  • Varadarajan, R., 2017. Musings on interesting and impactful theory and research. Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, 45(1), pp.10-13.

Finally, for this theme of the workshop, two papers from Journal of The Academy of Marketing Science are suggested, to serve as resources for the participants. The speakers will explain how they should prove useful during the presentation:

  • Summers, J.O., 2001. Guidelines for conducting research and publishing in marketing: From conceptualization through the review process. Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, 29(4), pp.405-415.
  • Hult, G.T.M., 2011. Toward a theory of the boundary-spanning marketing organization and insights from 31 organization theories. Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, 39(4), pp.509-536.

In general, the participants are expected to be present at the Doctoral Day and actively participate in discussions. The papers suggested for reading are helpful for the discussion parts, but are not obligatory to read.

Certificates of participation will be provided upon request. 

Program

The Doctoral Day will include lectures, doctoral workshops and discussions. 

It is a full day program including lunch and coffee breaks. The program will be complete in time for the participants to join the fun activity and the Get-together Party (BBQ) event in the evening, before the NOFOMA conference.
