This award recognizes published responsible research in marketing, where "responsible research" is defined as work that produces both useful and credible knowledge:

Useful knowledge addresses important social challenges and provides meaningful implications that have the potential to inform policies and practices.  Findings and insights from useful research will have implications beyond what is good for the financial performance of firms and will have wider societal implications beyond that of the particular consumer group, firm, or employee group studied.

Credible knowledge refers to the reliability and validity or trustworthiness of the findings, in either inductive or deductive work, using either qualitative or quantitative data, or both.

We call for nominations of published work that exemplifies the seven principles of responsible research as outlined on www.rrbm.network and described in detail in the position paper “Responsible Research for Business and Management:  Striving for Credible and Useful Knowledge.”

Examples of topics might include -societal benefits of corporate social responsibility initiatives; responsible marketing of potentially harmful products/ servicesimproving public health by addressing chronic disease, including obesity; responsible marketing to vulnerable consumer segments; promoting the financial well-being of at-risk consumers; improving consumer privacy protection; increasing access to quality healthcare.

Papers that received awards in previous years can be found here:

The Committee’s size will be determined by the number of nominations and comprises accomplished scholars, including representatives of the award sponsors. The academic members assess the nominations for credibility and usefulness of the research findings to inform societally beneficial management or business practice.

Award Recognition

Award-winning papers and books will be recognized and be featured on the RRBM, AMA, and Sheth Foundation websites.
