This is a blog for academics and researchers to share what they are doing with each other.
This means the research they can't quite define. It means the questions that have no answer. The data that is promising but has run out of promises. Maybe sharing these problems will find someone who has an answer.
For students to ask what questions are open and yet to be asked or answered. What studies need to be replicated, and may be publishable.
It is a place for stories, where consultants can find researchers to properly write up their cases - and for both to get credit and credibility.
Gossip about editors and journals and books - which are open to this approach - what kind of piece fits in which publication - etc. A place to post future 'special issues' on topics like time or work practices or work relationships that might be of interest and doable.
Refreshment when a doctoral thesis begins to flag. Another pair of eyes - friendly but critical. And a source of outside members of review committees.
New angles to take, such as - one sure way to solve the current global financial meltdown might be - dare I say it - trust? How to establish it.
And, of course, how to get with it. How the latest consulting fad and academic fashion can be related to research on RO.
Teaching issues, cases, how to explain this theory at different levels. What readings (start with the Annotated Biblio) work at what levels? Illustrations that work.
What schools may have openings and are friendly to this theory. In this economy, jobs have to be included.
I sense a huge opening in many areas for RO. We have to share for these opening to work.
Well? What do you think? Is this too ambitious?
