<p>Experiments are still an important part of the toolkit in organization science because of their strength in verifying causal relationships. In this paper, we explain the basics of the research method of experiments, and then focus on the trend of experimental researches in organization science. In recent years, experiments have been often employed as part of mixed-method researches, and some studies have incorporated the latest ICTs into the experimental design. In addition, this paper addresses the reproducibility crisis, which has been actively debated in the field of psychology.

In this paper, based on the discussions above, we also discuss the prospects of experimental researches in organization science.</p>
