|Richard A. Swanson Research Excellence Award|
The Richard A. Swanson Research Excellence Award is given to the author(s) of the outstanding Human Resource Development Quarterly refereed article in each annual volume.
This is a Journal-sponsored award. Contact the Chair for more information.
Chair: Thomas G. Reio, Jr.
Award Decisions to the Office: All awards winners are due back to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday – January 10, 2019 at 5:00pm Eastern time.
Given the high standards implicit in this award, there is no guarantee that this award will be given each year.
An equitable two-tier approach is used for identifying the award-winning article. First, the Swanson Award Committee Chair will solicit nominations from the entire HRDQ Editorial Board, including committee members and the Chair. The Committee Chair will tally these results to arrive at a pool of five to six nominees. The Swanson Award Committee, selected by the HRDQ Editorial Team, will then discuss these nominated articles and determine an award recipient. This approach ensures that all refereed articles have the potential to be reviewed by members of the Editorial Board, and yet streamlines the final decision process. The award criteria listed above and the following evaluative points will be used by the Editorial Board and the Swanson Award Committee when reviewing articles for nomination and selecting the award recipient:
