IMA Foundation announces Emerging Scholar Competitive Manuscript Award

IMA’s Foundation for Applied Research (FAR) recently announced a new awards program for academics: the IMA FAR Emerging Scholar Competitive Manuscript Award. IMA is accepting entries for the 2010 program through January 31, 2011.

The Emerging Scholar Competitive Manuscript Award was created to acknowledge the exceptional manuscript contribution of a single emerging scholar (or lead author recognition) of management accounting who has received a terminal degree (Ph.D., DBA, Ed. D., JD) within the last seven years.
 
The manuscript nominated for the award can be either a single-authored piece or a co-authored piece with the emerging scholar as the lead author. Nominations may be submitted by the individual candidate, the candidate’s mentor, or a peer.
 
To nominate a candidate or make a self-nomination:
  • Submit an electronic file (preferably in PDF format) of the published article from the original journal, including the journal name and date of publication. The article must be published in English with a publication date between January 2004 and December 2010.
  • Include a letter of nomination of the candidate, indicating the rationale for the nomination. The year of conferral of the candidate’s terminal degree should be indicated.
  • Submissions must be made by January 31, 2011 via e-mail to: Susan Weiss, CMA, CFM, FAR director and Task Force Selection Committee chair, at sfw1@bryant.edu.
 
“Nominations will be reviewed based on the work’s content and relevance to the mission of the IMA Foundation for Applied Research and contribution to the management accounting body of knowledge,” Weiss said. “In conjunction with IMA’s efforts, the winning submission will demonstrate practical value to accounting and financial professionals.”
 
The Selection Committee will select the winning author by March 10, 2011, and notify the winner shortly thereafter. The winner will be recognized at the IMA Breakfast during the American Accounting Association (AAA) Annual Meeting in Denver, in August 2011.
