    STR Best Paper Award Winners

    Please join us in congratulating the recipients of the STR best paper awards that were announced at the STR business meeting at the 2021 AOM Annual Conference:

    Congratulations to Anita McGahan (U Toronto) and Leandro Pongeluppe (U Toronto) for receiving the 2021 Glueck Best Paper Award for their paper "There is no planet B: Stakeholder governance that aligns incentives to preserve the Amazon rainforest".  The Bill Glueck Best Paper Award is provided for the submission judged to be the best paper submitted to the refereed scholarly program and is supported by friends and former students of Bill Glueck, the 35th president of the Academy of Management.

    Congratulations to Ivana Naumovska (INSEAD) and Derek Harmon (U Michigan) for receiving the 2021 Ghoshal Research and Practice Award for their paper "Into the great unknown: When expressing more uncertainty improves entrepreneurial financing outcomes." The Sumantra Ghoshal Research and Practice Award is awarded for the submission to the refereed scholarly program that is judged to be the best paper that advances research while deriving important implications for practice. The award honors the contributions to both research and practice made by Sumantra Ghoshal. 

    Congratulations to Sourobh Ghosh (Harvard U) for being receiving the 2021 Robert J. Litschert Best Doctoral Student Paper for his paper "Think before you act: The unintended consequences of inexpensive business experimentation." The Robert J. Litschert Award for the best paper by a doctoral student was instituted in memory of Professor Litschert by his students & colleagues at Virginia Tech. It is particularly appropriate that the award is given to a promising doctoral student since Professor Litschert considered the mentoring of students his most important responsibility.
