2014 Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award - Science

Brent Scott, Michigan State University

An associate professor of management, Dr. Scott has compiled a remarkable level of scholarship since starting his PhD program and earning his doctorate in 2007 from the University of Florida. He has produced 26 refereed journal articles, the majority of them in top-tier publications. His work has also resulted in an impressive number of more than 900 citations. His research has been primarily directed in two areas. One has examined the antecedents, consequences, and moderators of affective phenomena. At the core of this work is the idea that momentary fluctuations in affect can have long and lasting effects on important work-related attitudes and behaviors. Moreover, he has been able to identify many individual difference variables such as conscientiousness, agreeableness, self-monitoring ability, guilt, and gender, that can either attenuate or exacerbate affective relationships. This research has also had implications impacting work-family conflict that has led to practical approaches for enhancing positive flow between work and home and disrupting the negative flow, thus showing a strong balance of theoretical development and applications for practice. Another major theme has involved perceptions of organizational justice, both as an outcome as well as a predictor of other outcomes at work and has focused a good part of his research examining the factors that influence managers’ fair or unfair behavior.
