    STR will offer the Wiley Blackwell Outstanding Dissertation Award in Strategy Management again in 2021. Any doctoral dissertation may be entered that satisfies the following criteria:

    1. The dissertation addresses topics in the area of business policy and strategic management.
    2. The dissertation was completed between February 1, 2020 and January 28, 2021, where the completion date is when the degree is completed and awarded.
    3. The dissertation was not previously submitted for consideration for this award. A dissertation may be submitted to STR and other divisions simultaneously if it fits within each division's domain statement. The STR domain statement can be found at http://strdiv.org/ (under About).

    Interested recent graduates should submit electronically (via email) the following Word documents as attachments to an email to STR Division Chair Elect Heather Berry (berryh@gwu.edu ), with the subject heading "STR Division Outstanding Dissertation Award submission":

    1. A one-page abstract of the dissertation.
    2. A ten-page, double-spaced summary of the dissertation.
    3. A separate cover page listing your name, the dissertation's title, the completion date, the name of the university granting your degree, your current university affiliation and any intervening affiliation, and a complete list of dissertation committee members (advisor, other committee members, any "defense opponent" etc.) and their affiliations.

    In order to facilitate compliance with the STR conflict of interest policy and the blind review process, please remove any author-identifying information from your abstract and dissertation summary.

    Initial submissions must be received by Friday, January 29, 2021. Submissions will not be accepted by fax or regular mail. Members of the STR Research Committee will evaluate the dissertation summaries and invite a subset of entrants to submit their complete dissertations in March 2021 for further evaluation.
