    Saroj Parasuraman Outstanding Publication Award

    Sponsor: Greenleaf Publishing

    The Parasuraman Award, is presented annually by the DEI Division to the individual or individuals who published the best journal article in the field of gender and diversity in the calendar year preceding the award. The intent of the award is to highlight scholarly activity in the field of gender and diversity and to encourage further scholarly activity within our field.

    Deadlines for submissions: April 1st, 2024

    Please send nominations by e-mail to Katina Sawyer (katina.sawyer@gmail.com), Parasuraman Award Committee Chair.

    Nominations may be made by any member of the Academy of Management and self-nominations are welcome. The Award Subcommittee may also generate nominations. Those evaluating the publications will be blind to the source of the nomination.

    Publications will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the DEI division, consisting of at least 3 members. The subcommittee will make a recommendation to the Executive Committee about the award-winning publication and, if appropriate, a publication deserving honorable mention status. The Executive Committee may either endorse or reject the recommendations of the subcommittee but may not substitute a nominee of its own. In the absence of a publication that is deemed deserving of the award by both the Awards Subcommittee and the Executive Committee, the award may be withheld. 

    Only publications with a 2023 publication date will be considered. Publications having multiple authors are acceptable. The year of publication is considered to be the year in which the final published manuscript appeared in either electronic or print version. Articles must have a DOI to be eligible. In press articles are not eligible.  

    Criteria for evaluation of publications include:  

    • the degree to which the research addresses a phenomenon that is of significance to research in diversity, equity and inclusion
    • the potential impact or significance of the publication on diversity, equity and inclusion in organizations
    • the degree to which the research displays technical adequacy, including issues of internal validity, external validity, appropriate methodology, appropriate statistical analysis, and comprehensiveness of review (if the publication is a literature review).

    With your nomination, please include:

    1. a complete citation for the article
    2. a brief (1-2 sentences) statement indicating why you believe it is deserving of the award
