Research Supervision & Expectations
You are welcome to contact me related to your research-related inquiries at all levels from bachelor’s to doctoral degrees. This page gives you some basic information about the ground rules and my expectations for research supervision. On the homepage, you can find various communication channels to initiate the first contact. In most cases, my profiles are open so that you can send a message even without having an account on the platform you chose. Or at least, I try to be open with all my contact details, so reaching me should not be a challenge. You are also welcome to take a look at my personal profiles on research websites (ORCID, Google Scholar, ResearchGate, etc.) where you can check my previous research. In the past, I had the privilege to publish with my former students whom I supervised at the doctoral and master’s levels. If this is something that might be of interest, please feel free to share your ideas. Even if you don’t have any ideas at the moment, do not hesitate to contact me for brainstorming.
I am genuinely interested in integrating real-life issues into research. Therefore, practical relevance is a crucial component for me, no matter in which field you would like to prepare your research project. Any issue, gap, or conflicting ideas in management, organizational behavior, and social psychology research are welcome. You are also welcome to
I highly appreciate openness in research. And, I encourage the use of free, open-access platforms while conducting your research. From the design stage to data collection, from literature review to finalizing your research, I would guide you to locate resources that are free to use, open-access, and even more. For any reason, you are required to pay for content, text, or software, simply don’t pay. If you are required to pay, contact me. But simply don’t pay. There are many resources that can replace expensive tools, which are becoming increasingly unpopular and useless. One of my personal goals is to make research more available and accessible to the broader public and avoid practices that restrict access to society. And, open science practices along with the community for open access research are growing rapidly, so you may expect more tools and resources to come in the near future.
In addition to this, if you would like to publish your research, I would be more than happy to provide guidance to identify the most suitable venues for publication. I don’t quite care where it might be published as long as it passes a set of minimum criteria. There are plenty of no-fee-charging, legitimate, peer-reviewed, open-access journals that are indexed in reliable databases and have a promising future to become a leading source in its field. Again, many bright and brilliant scholars are trying hard to make this happen. By publishing in these outlets, we could collaboratively enhance and democratize the publication system.
