Abstract

Management publications are dominated by studies that offer statistical evidence in support of theorized relationships (i.e. p < .05). We contend that important advancements to our understanding can be gained by well-conducted studies that result in so-called “non-findings” (i.e. p > .05). Our essay not only highlights the necessity of moving beyond current publication practices, but we also issue a call to begin publishing research studies that advance knowledge, effectively leverage data, and comprehensively emphasize implications for both scholars and practitioners.
