The American Marketing Association is pleased to announce the recipients of the third annual AMA-EBSCO-RRBM Award for Responsible Research in Marketing. The research groups honored this year represent diverse positions on sustainability, race and its intersecting socio-political constructs, technology, food labeling, and financial inclusion and how marketing can inspire and impact these areas.
The award honors outstanding research that produces both credible and useful knowledge that can be applied to benefit society. A diverse team of scholars with input from dozens of subject matter expert reviewers selected the winners out of a pool of over 40 nominations. Nominated works needed to be published within a specific window of time and exemplify the Seven Principles of Responsible Research which supports the general notion of “better marketing for a better world.”
Funded via support from the AMA and EBSCO, the award is co-sponsored by the Sheth Foundation and presented in cooperation with the Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM). Both Distinguished Winner and Winners receive grant money to continue their efforts in the field. The 2022 winners include:
