We are excited to host Dr Amin Nazifi, Associate Professor of Marketing at Birmingham University, who will deliver a training workshop on Experimental Research Methods.

The aim of this workshop is to introduce experimental research as an alternative research method. The first part of the workshop will focus on the theoretical side by introducing experiments and their advantages and limitations compared with other methods. This will be followed by examining different types of experimental designs and the key elements in designing an experiment. The second part of the workshop will focus on the practical side of experimental research, drawing on some of the best practices and some of the key issues and considerations are discussed. For this purpose, the following article which uses several experiments will be used:
