  • 2. www.ehu.es/basterretxeaResearching on cooperatives1 ) What is Social Economy?… too many theoretical approaches related to theSocial Economy concept.2) Some possible risks of researchers on cooperatives:– Being too passionate and lack of objectivity.– Methodological difficulties in quantitative studies:• Relatively small population• Extremely small population when the study is limited to one single industry• Very large response rate needed– Scientific curiosity is not enough. We don’t pay our research out of our pocket.– Scarcity of journals to communicate your findings.3) In what conferences and meetings should I present my papers?4) Publish or perish. Selecting a journal to submit my work on cooperatives.– ISI (Thomson Reuters) journals, a very difficult but possible task.– Specialized Journals.5) “Comparative research and publication approach on cooperatives vs capitalfirms: an intelligent and synergic move.6) Some examples of research on cooperatives.7) Open Discussion
  • 3. www.ehu.es/basterretxea1) What is Social Economy?… too manytheoretical approaches related to the SocialEconomy concept.• Is there really a shared core identity, or isSocial Economy “out of focus”?CHAPTER 3IDENTIFICATION OF THE ACTORS OR GROUPS INCLUDED IN THE SOCIAL ECONOMY CONCEPT3. Identification of the actors or groups included in the Social Economy concept3.1. A definition of the Social Economy that fits in with the national accounts systems3.2. The market or business sub-sector of the Social EconomyA. Co-operativesB. Mutual societiesC. Social economy business groupsD. Other social economy companies (social enterprises, sociedadeslaborales,…)E. Non-profit institutions serving social economy entities3.3.

  • 6. www.ehu.es/basterretxeaFocus oncooperatives
  • 7. www.ehu.es/basterretxea2) Some possible risks ofresearchers on cooperatives:• Being too passionate and lack ofobjectivity.– Added problem 1: lack of distance (Many times, managersand cooperative founders, or employees as authors)– Added problem 2: preference for qualitative research,interviews with managers, internal documents andpublications,… interested information given.
  • 8. www.ehu.es/basterretxea2) Some possible risks ofresearchers on cooperatives:• Being too passionate and lack of objectivity.– Sometimes, facts running counter to theories andwishful thinking– Halo effect (sometimes positive, sometimes negative)
  • 9. www.ehu.es/basterretxea2) Some possible risks ofresearchers on cooperatives:• Methodological difficulties in quantitative studies:– Relatively small population– Extremely small population when thestudy is limited to one single industry– Very large response rate needed– Even more difficult when two respondents per firm are needed,or when a longitudinal approach (several waves of collection) isnecessary.
  • 10. www.ehu.es/basterretxeaScientific curiosity isimportant,We love solving problems, we arecurious about how things work,about non ordinary things (andcooperatives are not as otherordinary firms), …but curiosity is notenough.
  • 11. www.ehu.es/basterretxeaWe don’t pay our research outof our pocket.• We do science in serve of society• Money is spent in research, but if research is notcommunicated, is useless, is wasted.• Research is a dialogue and a collective endeavor.We build on and use each other’s work and for thisto be possible our research must be available forothers
  • 12. www.ehu.es/basterretxeaJournals on CooperativesScarcity of journals tocommunicate yourfindings

  • 15. www.ehu.es/basterretxea4) Publish or perish. Selecting a journalto submit my work on cooperativism.• Who my audience should be?• Which journal fits my audience?– Aims and Scope of Journal– Field (cooperatives, SE…) vs General Journals– Has this Journal already published papers on this Topic?• Style of Journal– Quantitative vs Qualitative– Theory vs Empirical vs Applied• Level of significance of the work we have done? (novelty, results,…)and level of the Journal– “If you are not getting rejected, you are aimed too low” Donald Siegel(Editor JTT, Assoc Ed, JBV)http://www.google.es/imgres?imgurl=http://francisthemulenews.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/dibujo11mar2008elnaschie.png&imgrefurl=http://francisthemulenews.wordpress.com/2008/03/page/2/&usg=__lYk8wJmZ5WbNHQh3U0FXg4Jq6jM=&h=755&w=470&sz=32&hl=es&start=4&zoom=1&tbnid=0XO90X96qhS4zM:&tbnh=142&tbnw=88&ei=wkToTrH4M4P-8QPcxfj9CQ&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dbottleneck%2Beffect%2Bisi%2Bjournals%26hl%3Des%26gbv%3D2%26tbm%3Disch&itbs=1
