Distinguished Research Award

Deadline: January 30

About

The College of Business Executive Committee has decided that the college should offer a research award for post-tenure faculty members (i.e., tenured associate and full professors) in order to encourage their efforts in research. The amount of each award is $2,000. The annual Research Awards will be decided by the Research and Professorship Review Committee (RPRC). Criteria for the award are outlined below. The criteria for the award are outlined below:

Nomination process

  • Faculty members may nominate themselves or be nominated by other faculty members (e.g., the department chair) for the award. The nomination should be in a short letter outlining the reasons the faculty member is deserving of the award (see the criteria listed below), and should enclose a CV.
  • The Associate Dean will automatically nominate faculty members if they have publications appearing in journals on the Summer List of Journals (i.e., the list used for summer funding) during the past calendar year; in this instance, faculty will be invited to provide documentation, including a CV and short letter.

Eligibility Period

  • Faculty members may be nominated each year until winning the award.
  • Once a faculty member has received the research award, he/she will not be eligible for three years following the award.

Criteria for Receiving the Award

The criteria for receiving the awards are the level of research productivity over the last calendar year and the quality of the research produced, as indicated by the following list of suggestive (but not exhaustive) indicators of quality. It is ultimately up to the nominee to provide a convincing case of the quality of her/his research using both subjective and objective criteria:

  • Quality of journals in which articles are published, based on the Summer Research List of journals or journal rankings by the Impact Factors outlined in the Journal Citation Reports (available through the ISI Web of Knowledge in the Nebraska Libraries' electronic databases).
  • Citations to past research, available through the Web of Science in the ISI Web of Knowledge in the Nebraska Libraries' electronic databases, or based on Google Scholar metrics (e.g., the H-factor).
  • Importance of the research questions addressed in the research program (i.e., theoretical, practical, educational, or university importance).
  • Number of research grants obtained.
  • Importance and number of research monographs or high quality books/book chapters.

Deadlines and responsibilities:

12/1: Faculty members upload their CVs for the past calendar year to PAD (Publications and Awards Data).

1/15: Associate Dean of Research and Faculty downloads CVs of faculty with publication(s) in journals on the summer list for the past calendar year and invites them to provide additional documentation to the RPRC.

1/30: Documentation should be submitted through Nominate for the Distinguished Research Award for Post-Tenure Faculty in the button above.

3/1: RPRC reports award winners to the Dean’s Office and sends award letters to faculty; awards are made at the annual Award Event in April.

Positive Post

Positive Post cards make the day.
Positive Post cards make the day!

We’ve learned that building a culture of recognition needs to be intentional and authentic. Being recognized for the good work we do makes us more productive and positive, and increases our engagement in the community. When you walk around the College, you’ll see collections of Positive Post cards proudly displayed on peoples’ walls, shelves or cork boards. These pre-printed and branded postcards help students, faculty and staff celebrate their colleagues who make a difference. Join in and take the opportunity to recognize someone who has helped you, shown leadership, done something noteworthy, or used their strengths in a powerful way.

Additional post cards are available in your department in the Dean’s Office, and at the CoB first-floor Welcome Desk.
