TIM Best Dissertation


The Technology and Innovation Management Division of the Academy of Management invites submissions for its Best Dissertation Award; Deadline 3 Feb 2014

Call for 2014 TIM Best Dissertation Award Submissions

Abstract Submission Deadline: February 3, 2014

The TIM Division of the Academy of Management is pleased to invite submissions for the 2014 TIM Best Dissertation Award. We will accept submissions based on doctoral dissertations completed during calendar years 2012 and 2013.

We take a broad perspective on technology and innovation including aspects of the emergence, diffusion, adoption, commercialization, evolution and consequences of technologies and innovations. The TIM Division’s domain statement can be found at http://www.aomtim.org/. As per the domain statement, we welcome dissertations from different disciplinary perspectives including management (strategy, organization theory, organizational behavior etc.) as well as economics, technology studies, sociology, etc. We are also happy to consider a broad range of methodologies.

The award process involves two stages. In the first stage, each applicant submits a 5-page dissertation abstract (see details below) along with supporting references and figures. A committee of experienced scholars then selects the finalists. In the second stage, finalists are invited to submit a 30-page manuscript based upon their dissertation. The committee reviews these manuscripts, provides feedback, and selects the best dissertation, which will be announced at the 2014 Annual Academy of Management Meeting in Philadelphia.

Finalists will be invited to present their work at a dedicated session during the conference, when the winner will be announced. The session will afford high visibility to the finalists’ dissertations.

Please see the 2014 meeting information on the TIM division website (www.aomtim.org) for submission details.
