Research on research

I regularly and increasingly conduct ‘research on research’, in which I study scientific practices in my own and related fields, with a particular attention for the role of incentive structures in driving these practices. I intend to contribute to the credibility of scientific efforts in business, economics, and management research, and thereby to improve the ultimate usefulness of our work for both ourselves as researchers, and for our non-academic target audiences.
