Careers Division Awards


Best Paper Awards: The Process

1. Conduct and write your very best careers research and submit your paper to the Careers Division of the AOM.

2. Reviewers nominate the best papers for the awards (note that all reviews conducted for the AOM are blind).

3. The Program Chair (in 2014 this was Tania Casado) identifies 3-4 papers, based on the reviewer award nominations, ratings, and comments. The nominations are then sent to the Careers Division Chair Elect (in 2014 this was Kim Eddleston) who oversees the nominations and evaluations process (in conjunction with an Awards Committee for each of the awards).

4. The Division Chair-Elect assembles an Awards Committee for each of the awards. This Committee will rank and provide written feedback on each of the nominated papers. The final decision is made by the respective Committee in a collegial fashion.
