2024 “Responsible Research in Management” Award
Sponsored by the Academy of Management Fellows
Co-sponsored by the Responsible Research in Business and Management
Supported by the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business
Call for Nominations
January 31, 2024
This award recognizes rigorously conducted and societally beneficial research contributing knowledge with the potential to make the world a better place. Responsible research gives rise to both credible and useful knowledge. Credibility refers to the reliability, validity, and trustworthiness of findings, in either inductive or deductive work, using qualitative data, quantitative data, or both. Usefulness refers to the potential of the knowledge to inform policy and influence practice. We call for nominations of published work that exemplifies these principles of responsible research.
The Fellows Group of the Academy of Management is composed of members who have made significant contributions to the science and practice of management. Through this Award, the Fellows seek to recognize published research that yields credible results, guides practice, and benefits society.
The Responsible Research in Business and Management network (RRBM) is dedicated to inspiring, encouraging, and supporting credible and useful research in the business and management disciplines. Learn more about the RRBM’s mission, supporters, readings, and activities.
Michigan Ross supports the Responsible Research in Management Award Ceremony held at the Academy of Management conference.
