Waikato Management School and the New Zealand Institute for Business Research (NZIBR) are hosting a one-day workshop on 13 March for research scholars and postgraduate students around New Zealand who are interested in using Computer-Aided Text Analysis (CATA).

The workshop will be led by two of the world’s leading experts on the CATA technique; Professor of Entrepreneurship Jeremy Short (University of Oklahoma) and Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship Aaron Anglin (Texas Christian University).

These distinguished visitors look forward to chatting with New Zealand scholars interested in using CATA in their research and collaborating with them to publish in top ABDC journals.

CATA is an innovative content analysis method that facilitates construct measurement by converting text into quantitative data (word frequencies). CATA is intuitive to learn and utilises narratives and written texts in a manner that overcomes common measurement shortcomings and enables striking and rigorous theoretical advancements. Research employing CATA approaches is being published in top scholarly journals across a range of fields.

Professor Jeremy Short’s research focuses on the determinants of firm performance, strategic decision processes, entrepreneurship, research methods, franchising and family business.

Assistant Professor Aaron Anglin’s research focuses on new venture financing, entrepreneurship, research methods, and family business.
