Research Excellence Award
(Awards for Outstanding Research/Creativity)
Purpose of Program: The purpose of these awards is to recognize nominees at the time of their outstanding research accomplishments as documented in their theses and dissertations. These nominees are also expected to be academically superior and able to not only do research, but develop a well-written product. The intent of this program is to recognize up to 10% of nominees who have submitted research theses and dissertations. Those programs noted with special request are asked to submit, via email to us, a justification for your nomination. The Research Excellence Program is administered by the Board of Committee. Awards are offered each year.
Description: The Award for Excellence Research was established to recognize outstanding research in the field of Finance & Management.
Criteria: This award is given to a distinguished paper that advances the field of outcomes research and is expected to have a substantial impact on the field with anticipated wide acceptance and application by others. The recipient is selected by the Excellence Awards Committee from nominated publications that have appeared in print or e-pub in peer-review journals during the preceding calendar year and other communication venues (e.g. books, reports). Self-nominations are encouraged and accepted for consideration.
Selection Process: A call for nominations is placed in November-December for articles published during the past twelve months to be considered for the Award for Excellence in Research. In addition, each Research Excellence Awards Committee member selects relevant publications in respected peer-reviewed journals during the preceding twelve months to be considered by the Excellence Awards Committee in the selection process. The Excellence Awards Committee meets via teleconference to discuss each of the nominated publications. They select the best demonstration of scientific excellence for that time period. The nominee is then forwarded to the Board of Directors for final approval. The corresponding author on the publication is given the award.
Nominations for the Award for Excellence in Research should be accompanied by an electronic version of the nominated paper and a letter of support that illustrates the positive attributes of the paper, and sent to us. Only IPLAC members may submit nominations (either their own publications or others).
