2016 ABO Outstanding Dissertation Award Competition


The AAA Accounting, Behavior and Organizations Section is pleased to announce its 2019 Outstanding Dissertation Award competition. The purpose of this competition is to recognize outstanding dissertation research in a behavioral/organizations topic. The assessment of what constitutes an outstanding contribution to behavioral/organizational accounting research will be based on, but not limited to, the following criteria:

  • relevance and originality of the research question
  • development of a theoretical framework; appropriateness of the research method and analysis
  • quality of writing
  • potential for publication in a scholarly journal
  • potential for the results to have practical implications for accounting practitioners and organizations

An entry may be nominated by either the author of the dissertation or by one or more members of the author's dissertation committee. The author must be a member of the ABO Section at the time of entry. The entry may not be simultaneously submitted to dissertation competitions sponsored by other sections of the American Accounting Association. All entries must include a letter from the dissertation chairperson stating that the dissertation has been completed and accepted by the degree-granting institution during the calendar year 2017.

A working paper from the dissertation that meets the criteria for papers submitted to Behavioral Research in Accounting (refer to the latest issue for requirements related to length and other matters) and the related experimental or survey instrument should be sent to the Chair of the Award Committee. All entries must be received by June 10, 2019. The award recipient will be notified by August 1, 2019.

Please send all materials in electronic form to: D. Jordan Lowe, Jordan.Lowe@asu.edu

The AAA/ABO Section Dissertation Award carries with it a $1,000 cash award for the recipient as well as a plaque honoring the recipient. The award recipient will be announced during lunch at the ABO Section Annual Research Conference in October 2019. The award recipient will also be invited to present his/her work at the ABO Research Conference.
