A “business researcher” view on opportunities for psychology in entrepreneurship research
Davidsson, Per (2016) A “business researcher” view on opportunities for psychology in entrepreneurship research. Applied Psychology : An International Review, 65(3), pp. 628-636.
In this short essay I offer some “business researcher” advice on how to leverage a strong background in psychology when attempting to contribute to the maturing field of “entrepreneurship research”. Psychologists can benefit from within-discipline research, e.g. on emergence, small groups, fit, and expertise as well as method strengths in, e.g. experimentation, operationalisation of constructs, and multi-level modelling. However, achieving full leverage of these strengths requires a clear conceptualisation of “entrepreneurship” as well as insights into the challenges posed by the nature of this class of phenomena.
