Call for Nominations - Carolyn Dexter Award for Best International Paper
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 criteria for the Award include the following:
1. The theme and content of the paper should reflect an awareness of business and management outside domestic boundaries;
2. Collaboration between scholars from different countries is desirable;
3. 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 2012 Call for Submissions with opening dates for Annual Meeting program submissions. You can nominate your submission by placing a check in the "Dexter Award Nominee" box on the submission abstract entry screen.
Each division or interest group program chair then nominates one paper to the Chair of the Dexter Award Committee,
. 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 Annual Meeting in Boston in August 2012. All finalists will be asked to attend the Dexter Award Reception, where the winning paper will be announced.
