CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: THE CAROLYN DEXTER AWARD
Carolyn Dexter Award
The Carolyn Dexter Award is an all-Academy award given to the paper that best meets the objective of internationalizing the Academy. This serves the mission of the Academy and the charge of the International Theme Committee, which sponsors this Award. The recipient of the award is given a plaque. The criteria for the Award include the following:
a. The theme and content of the paper should reflect an awareness of business and management outside domestic boundaries;
b. Collaboration between scholars from different countries is desirable;
c. Papers are considered for the Carolyn Dexter Award if they offer new insights, are rich in observation, and employ creative methodologies. Submissions are welcomed of topics or methods that are not in the U.S. mainstream, but are important in other countries' research traditions and are of excellent quality in accord with the criteria of these traditions.
If you would like your paper to be considered, please watch for the 2010 Call for Submissions opening on November 3, 2009. You can nominate your submission by placing a check in the "Dexter Award Nominee" box on the submission abstract entry screen. Submissions will be open until January 15, 2010.
Each division or interest group program chair then nominates one paper to the committee Chair of the Dexter Award,
. The authors of the papers who have been nominated by the division and interest group program chairs will be asked to send an electronic version and a hard copy of their paper to this award chair. Finalists will be notified prior to the conference and the winners will be announced at the conference in Montreal in August 2010. All finalists are expected to be in attendance.
