The American Marketing Association is pleased to announce the recipients of the fourth annual AMA-EBSCO-RRBM Award for Responsible Research in Marketing. The research groups honored this year explore topics such as obesity, women entrepreneurs, how taxes can affect nutrition, the effect of internet access on public schools’ academic performance, stigmatization, the negative consequences of social media, and much more.
This 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 between 2018–2022 and exemplify the Seven Principles of Responsible Research that support 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 Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM). Both Distinguished Winners and Winners receive grant money to continue their efforts in the field. The 2023 winners include:
