BISPO, Marcelo de Souza. Methodological Reflections on Practice-Based Research in Organization Studies. BAR, Braz. Adm. Rev. [online]. 2015, vol.12, n.3, pp.309-323. ISSN 1807-7692.

This article aims to discuss methodological possibilities for empirical research on practice-based studies. From the small number of publications on research and methodological procedures on the study of practices, the text makes a rescue of the philosophical assumptions of practice theories, so it can further bring the discussion of how they influence in the form of access to and analysis of empirical data. It is, therefore, a theoretical text that seeks to present general guidelines to foster the development of specific methods for practice-based studies as its main contribution. Further, it discusses ways of collecting and analyzing empirical data from the practice lens perspective.

Keywords : practice-based research; methodology; practice theory; organization studies.
