Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) students Kelly Anderson Diercks and Lisa Vander were recently recognized as Best Reviewers at the 2020 Academy of Management (AOM) annual meeting, held Aug. 7-11. Anderson Diercks was recognized by the Gender and Diversity in Organizations (GDO) division while Vander was recognized by the Technology and Innovation Management (TIM) division.
AOM is the preeminent professional association for management and organization scholars. The nearly 20,000 members from over 120 countries worldwide are faculty and students in business schools at universities, academics in related social science fields, and management positions.
The AOM annual meeting academic program relies on peer reviews to confirm new knowledge generation, verify research protocols, improve manuscript quality, and increase the relevance and prestige of the annual meeting paper and workshop sessions. Best reviewers are evaluated by manuscript submission authors based on helpfulness for improving the paper and constructiveness review tone, then chosen by the division’s program chairperson.
