Attention all scholars! The AOM Fellows Group wants your help in identifying and honoring credible research that changes the world for the better. Since its founding in 2018, the RRM award has assembled a canon of "responsible research" that is now comprised of 60 articles and 12 research books that are academically credible, useful, and set forth ideas and findings that have helped or can potentially help to improve the world. Please visit this RRBM page to view previous winners of this Award. We are excited to begin a new round of awards to add to this corpus of exemplary works.
We invite nominations or self-nominations of empirical research articles or research books, published within the last three years (2019-2021), written in the English language, that meet the following criteria:

Seven Principles of Responsible Research in Business and Management
Please go to www.rrbm.network for a detailed description of the seven principles in the position paper "Responsible Research in Business and Management: Striving for Credible and Useful Knowledge."
Principle 1-Service to Society: We value research that develops knowledge benefitting business and the broader society, locally and globally, for the ultimate purpose of creating a better world.
Principle 2-Valuing Both Basic and Applied Contributions: Research contributing to both theory and practice is valued by academic deans, journal editors, accrediting agencies, senior leaders, and other stakeholders.
Principle 3-Valuing Plurality and Multidisciplinary Collaboration: Research reflecting the plurality and complexity of business and societal problems through diverse research themes, methods, forms of scholarship, types of inquiry, and interdisciplinary collaboration is valued by scholars, editors, funders, and accreditation agencies.
Principle 4-Sound Methodology: Research exhibiting sound scientific methods and processes in both quantitative and qualitative aspects or both theoretical and empirical domains contributes to both theory and practice.
Principle 5-Stakeholder Involvement: Research that engages various stakeholders who play critical roles at different stages of the scientific process without compromising the independence of inquiry yields stronger theory and better practice.
Principle 6-Impact on Stakeholders: Business and management schools, funders, and accrediting agencies acknowledge and reward research that has an impact on diverse stakeholders, especially research that contributes to better business and a better world.
Principle 7-Broad Dissemination: Dissemination of research findings through varied media to diverse audiences advances basic knowledge and enhances its practical application.
