Adrienne M. Bauer and Laura L. Koppes
Eastern Kentucky University


Frederick P. Morgeson, Eli Broad Graduate School of Management, Michigan State University, was selected to receive the 2005 American Psychological Association (APA) Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution to Psychology in the area of Applied Psychology. Morgeson is recognized for his diverse empirical and conceptual contributions to applied psychology. His integrative research examining how work is structured and how individuals perceive their work has made significant contributions to understanding how to reduce common work design tradeoffs and enhancing the accuracy of job analytic information, as well as understanding the idiosyncratic changes individuals make to their work. This and other work on team leadership, personnel selection, and theory development has been marked by a variety of experimental and quasi-experimental field research designs that draw from both basic and applied psychological research to address critical theoretical and applied issues. 

Jinyan Fan, assistant professor from the I-O psychology program at Hofstra University, won this years Ralph Alexander Dissertation Award from the Academy of Managements Human Resources Division. His dissertation is entitled Testing the Efficacy and the Psychology of a Newcomer Orientation Program: A Longitudinal Field Experiment.
