Thunderbird produces 'paper of the year' again
For the second year in a row, Thunderbird School of Global Management’s esteemed faculty produced the “Paper of the Year” in the Academy of Management Perspectives journal. David Bowen, Ph.D., won the 2007 award Aug. 12 at the academy’s annual conference in Anaheim, Calif., for a paper on organizational justice that he co-authored with two University of Arizona researchers.
Thunderbird professors Mansour Javidan, Ph.D., and Mary Sully de Luque, Ph.D., won the 2006 award for a paper they wrote on cross-cultural leadership.
“It is exciting to see David Bowen win this prestigious award,” said Javidan, Thunderbird’s dean of research and Garvin distinguished professor. “It shows that his research is having a big impact in the academic community. The process of selecting candidates for the award is extremely competitive.”
Bowen’s paper, published in the November 2007 edition of Academy of Management Perspectives, describes three distinct components of workplace justice. The paper pulls together decades of research that suggests managers can reap benefits for their organizations even if they get only one component of workplace justice right.
Bowen is the Robert and Katherine Herberger Chair in Global Management. He received his Ph.D. and MBA degrees from Michigan State University.
The award-winning paper, called “The Management of Organizational Justice,” was co-authored by University of Arizona professors Russell Cropanzano, Ph.D., and Stephen W. Gilliland, Ph.D.
