IFSAM Award for Excellence in Societally Relevant Management Scholarship

IFSAM places particular value on published scientific research in management which improves our understanding of the ways in which society as a whole can be advanced and the world made a better place. In order to give expression to this value, in 2021 the Federation created the IFSAM Award for Excellence in Societally Relevant Management Scholarship. This award aims to encourage researchers to prioritize research which serves society. The award will be given to a body of published research which addresses societal challenges at local and/or global levels with the ultimate aim of making a contribution to societal wellbeing.  This might be done, for example, through empirical studies which investigate different types of organizations (e.g., traditional businesses, social enterprises, NGOs) and various groups and individuals (e.g., disadvantaged groups, employees, employers and other stakeholders) in relation to real life problems and sustainable development goals. An alternative approach might be through conceptual works which problematize the existing values, structures and practices to emancipate individuals and society as a whole and which introduce innovative ways of dealing with existing and future problems.

Award Criteria

  • Evidence of excellence in societally relevant management scholarship;
  • Evidence of important insights yielded as a result of pursuing a societally relevant research agenda; and
  • Evidence of impact of the scholarship on the field, on a line of inquiry, or on policy/practice.

Award Submission Material (to be uploaded on https://www.ifsam.org/submit-2022-awards/)

  • One-page background biographical note on the nominee/s;
  • The files (in .pdf possibly) of the published scholarly work being tendered for consideration; and
  • Maximum two-page retrospective statement about the nominee/s on the particular ways in which the work addresses societal challenges and impacts either the scholarly conversation and/or the policy/practice context.

IFSAM Award for Excellence in Indigenous Management Scholarship

IFSAM is dedicated to the development of management research and teaching as a field of scientific inquiry and its advancement in all nations. In order to give expression to the centrality of diverse and contextualized management scholarship, in 2021 the Federation created the IFSAM Award for Excellence in Indigenous Management Scholarship. The aim of the award is to encourage, recognize and celebrate outstanding indigenous research in the field of business and management (all subfields included) from around the world, particularly in and for countries and communities for which there has been little published research on. We are especially interested in bodies of research where the intellectual tradition, the phenomenon of interest, and the manner in which it is explored and communicated are of particular relevance to the context in which the research takes place and where a commitment to their pursuit yields meaningful insights of value to stakeholders in that context.

Award Criteria

  • Evidence of excellence in indigenous management scholarship;
  • Evidence of important insights yielded as a result of pursuing a context sensitive approach; and
  • Evidence of impact of the scholarship on the field, on a line of inquiry, or on policy/practice.
