Abstract

A four-level framework developed in philosophy of science is used to review recent operations management research. Findings reveal that operations management research still bypass key observations and taxonomic steps of scientific inquiry. This blocks research that can move past middle range theories and that can engage with more abstract theoretical levels and also stops the development of theories specific to the field of operations management. We recommend adopting the 4-level framework to get rid of such 'bad habits'.
