We kindly invite you to “Methodological Seminar: Idea-Data-Tools … Matters!” by prof. Robert Faff (Bond University and Queensland University, Australia).
Faff’s (2015; 2021a) “Pitching Research” framework (PRF) is built on a research planning tool that challenges (novice) researchers to productively communicate their prospective research ideas to academic field experts. This seminar focuses on the three basic building blocks of the PRF: Idea, Data & Tools. Informed by three recent SSRN papers (Faff, 2023b, 2023c, 2023d), he gives practical guidance and tips on how to plan a solid methodological foundation for a new piece of scholarly research.
