OMT WebOrganization and Management Theory Division of the Academy of Management
The OMT Research Committee is a group of approximately forty OMT division members who volunteer their time to help select award winning OMT submissions to the Academy of Management Annual Meeting. As part of the Research Committee, volunteers serve on one of five sub-committees. Sub-committee members read and rank order a small subset of manuscripts that have been selected as finalists for awards in one of the following five categories: Best Paper, Best Paper from a Dissertation (Lou Pondy Award), Best International Paper, Best Paper on Environmental and Social Practices, and Best Symposium. The aggregated rankings of sub-committee members determine the winners in each category. The winners of the OMT Lou Pondy Award and Best International Paper automatically qualify as finalists for the Academy of Management’s William H. Newman and Carolyn Dexter awards, respectively.
Be a part of this valuable service to the OMT division. Read some of the finest submissions to the OMT division for this year’s Academy of Management meeting. There are still openings available on the committee this year as some members have had to temporarily withdraw from the committee or have cycled off after years of valuable and dedicated service. The work of the Research Committee occurs in a compressed, one-week time period, near the end of February and the beginning of March. Requirements for inclusion on the Research Committee are that you are a member of the OMT division, an active OMT division reviewer for this year’s Academy Meetings, and that you can commit to being available during the time we review papers for awards.
How do you become a Research Committee member? Contact Joe Broschak, University of Arizona, via email (
) or phone (520-626-0464). OMT members who volunteer but who cannot be placed on subcommittees this year will be given priority for future openings on the Research Committee.
Be an active part of the OMT division. After all, OMT, the place to be, works because of you!
Best Published Paper Award Committee Chair
I am pleased to announce that Jane Dutton (University of Michigan) and Mary Ann Glynn (Boston College) have agreed to co-chair the OMT Best Published Paper Committee. Jane and Mary Ann are taking over chairmanship of the committee from C.R. (Bob) Hinings (Professor Emeritus, University of Alberta) who chaired the committee in 2011 and 2012. Many thanks in advance to Jane and Mary Ann for guiding this committee, and to the many volunteers who will assist Jane and Mary Ann in selecting this year’s winner.
