This path-breaking book gathers `best practices' advice from the masters about how to achieve excellence in entrepreneurship research, how to create an outstanding research career and how to avoid the pitfalls that can sidetrack emerging scholars. Combining narratives from the 2009 and 2010 Entrepreneurship Exemplars Conferences, the authors frame the dialogue using person-environment fit theory and present keynote addresses and dialogue sessions that bring together editors and authors to reach into the unexplored corners of the top-tier research craft.
This book makes explicit the tacit knowledge of top-tier research, giving all readers access to `how-to' advice from research-craft masters. Learn what Howard Aldrich, Jay Barney, Michael Hitt, Duane Ireland, Patricia P. McDougall and S. `Venkat' Venkataraman have to say about making research efforts count toward building a fulfilling and rewarding research career. Employing a combination of web and text media, this easy-to-read volume caters to researchers who may lack proximity to world-class sounding boards. This guidebook offers a clear portrayal of the realities of progress milestones within a top-tier research career and is a must-read for all emerging scholars - in entrepreneurship and beyond.
This entrepreneurship research best-practices book using the words of the masters is ideally suited to graduate students and their advisors, university administrators, potential and up-and-coming academics and policy makers across many social science disciplines and interests.
