The wealth of diversity in globalization, immigration, multinational businesses and organizations has has created challenges and opportunities for designing research studies in these cross-cultural contexts. Additionally, the increasing use of internet and mobile technologies to access research populations across the globe contributes to a body of research with a cross-cultural focus. Some research challenges include knowledge of, and the sensitivity to, culture-specific ethical beliefs and other practices, facility with linguistic translation, and interpretation of participant behaviour, resulting in the potential for greater researcher bias. However, cross-cultural research also brings with it opportunities in the form of interdisciplinary and comparative studies, resulting in a researcher's ability to generate data about human behaviour, which can create deeper and far-reaching insights for organizations.
