The members of the Social Issues in Management (SIM) Division recognize recent doctoral studies work by conducting the annual Social Issues in Management Doctoral Dissertation Award competition. A plaque, along with monetary recognition, will be presented at the business meeting of the SIM Division at the Academy meetings in Anaheim in August, 2008. To be eligible for this award, a doctoral dissertation must focus on some aspect of the relationship between business and society (broadly construed). The particular discipline in which the dissertation is written is not a consideration. Criteria for selection include, but are not limited to:
Clarity and lucidness of writing
Contribution to research/practice
Written in the English language
Entries for the 2008 award competition must be successfully defended between March 1, 2006 and March 31, 2008. Applications for this award must be received by May 1, 2008. A completed application includes:
