Paper Award

The Excellence in Organizational Scholarship Award was established in 2012 to develop the knowledge base for understanding organizations and organizational change, and to recognize scholarly excellence in developing new ways to apply psychoanalytic theory to the study of organizations. The award is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Organizational Change, and funded in part by the Harry S Truman School of Public Affairs at the University of Missouri and the Seth Allcorn Endowment Fund.

Eligible papers are original articles published in a refereed journal within the last two years, or original articles accepted for publication in a refereed journal within the next two years. Papers may be either conceptual or empirical. Papers may be submitted by the author, or nominated by a third party. Authors of nominated papers will be contacted and asked if they would like to submit a complete application.

Awards are determined through a competitive process. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of CSOC associates. Papers will be evaluated on the extent to which they are able to develop and elaborate theory, demonstrate creative methodology, and contribute to psychoanalytic organizational studies.

The winner will receive a $1,000 cash prize and up to $1,500 in travel expenses to attend the award ceremony and present his or her paper to an interdisciplinary campus community at the University of Missouri flagship campus. Applications are due by March 31, 2014.

To submit your own paper for consideration, please email a cover letter, abstract, biographical statement, and the published article or article proof as PDF attachments to the email address below.
