    Posted 01-28-2024 16:28

    Greetings AOM members - and apologies for cross-posting.


    This year's nomination deadline for Academy of Management (AOM) Research Methods Division (RMD) awards is March 1st. Please consider nominating deserving colleagues. You can nominate individuals for: 


    Sage Publications/RMD Distinguished Career Award: Awarded to distinguished scholars who have made significant contributions to the advancement of research methodology. (Note: Nominees who do not win the award in a particular year will be automatically eligible to win the award the 2 years immediately following the year they were initially nominated, without the need to be re-nominated. Therefore, nominees from 2022 and 2023 who did not win the award will be considered this year by default. Beyond this 3-year period, nominees are still eligible for the award, but will not be included again in the nominees' pool unless they are re-nominated.)


    Sage Publications/RMD/Lawrence R. James Early Career Award: Awarded to scholars who have made distinguished contributions to research methods, practice, and education during their early career stage. Candidates for the 2024 award must have received their Ph.D. no earlier than 2017.


    Sage Publications/Robert McDonald Advancement of Organizational Research Methodology Award: Awarded to an organization-related article or book chapter published between January 2018 and December 2022 that has made a significant contribution to research methodology.


    Details on the criteria for each of these awards and the nomination process are available on the RMD website ( The list of past winners is listed below. 


    The RMD will present awards at our annual business meeting during the AOM Conference in August. Thanks to generous donations by Sage Publications, each of these awards offers recognition and a monetary reward. So start thinking about your colleagues and associates who deserve some recognition for their hard work!
