Distinguished Professional Contributions Award

In recognition of outstanding contributions to the practice of industrial and organizational psychology.

 The award is given to an individual who has developed, refined, and implemented practices, procedures, and methods that have had a major impact on both people in organizational settings and the profession of I-O psychology. The contributions of the individual should have advanced the profession by increasing the effectiveness of I-O psychologists working in business, industry, government, and other organizational settings.

The recipient of the award is given a plaque and a cash prize of $1,000. In addition, the recipient is invited to give an address, related to his or her contributions, at the subsequent meeting of SIOP.

 Criteria for the Award

The letter of nomination should address the following points:

1. The general nature of the nominees contributions to the practice of I-O psychology.

2. The contributions that the nominee has made to either (a) the development of practices, procedures, and methods, or (b) the implementation of practices, procedures, and methods. If appropriate, contributions of both types should be noted.

8. The organizational setting(s) of the nominees work (industry, government, academia, etc.) will not be a factor in selecting a winner of the award.

 Distinguished Scientific Contributions Award

In recognition of outstanding contributions to the science of industrial and organizational psychology.

 This award is given to the individual who has made the most distinguished empirical and/or theoretical scientific contributions to the field of
I-O psychology. The setting in which the nominee made the contributions (i.e., industry, academia, government) is not relevant.

Criteria for the Award

The letter of nomination should address the following issues:

1. The general nature of the nominees scientific contributions.

2. The most important theoretical and/or empirical contributions.

3. The impact of the nominees contributions on the science of I-O psychology, including the impact that the work has had on the work of students and colleagues.

4. The stature of the nominee as a scientist vis--vis other prominent scientists in the field of I-O psychology.

Distinguished Service Contributions Award

In recognition of sustained, significant, and outstanding service to the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.

 This award is given for sustained, significant, and outstanding service to SIOP. Service contributions can be made in a variety of ways which include but are not limited to serving as (a) an elected officer of the Society, (b) the chair of a standing or ad hoc committee of the Society, (c) a member of a standing or ad hoc committee of the Society, and (d) a formal representative of the Society to other organizations. The recipient is given a plaque and cash prize of $1,000.

1. The offices held by the nominee.

2. The duration of his or her service in each such office.

3. The significant achievements of the nominee while an incumbent in each office.

Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award

In recognition of distinguished early career contributions to the science or practice of industrial and organizational psychology.

 This award is given to an individual who has made distinguished contributions to the science and/or practice of I-O psychology within seven (7) years of receiving the PhD degree. In order to be considered for the 2003 Award, nominees must have defended their dissertation no earlier than 1996. The setting in which the nominee has made the contributions (i.e., academia, government, industry) is not relevant.

4. The status of the nominee as a scientist and/or practitioner vis--vis other prominent scientists and/or practitioners in the field of I-O psychology.

5. While the number of publications is an important consideration, it is not the only one. An equally important criteria is the quality of the publications and their impact on the field of I-O psychology.

Documentation should be provided that indicates that the nominee received his or her PhD degree no earlier than 1996.

 

S. Rains Wallace Dissertation Research Award

In recognition of the best doctoral dissertation research in the field of industrial and organizational psychology.

 This award is given to the person who completes the best doctoral dissertation research germane to the field of I-O psychology. The winning dissertation research should demonstrate the use of research methods that are both rigorous and creative. The winner of the award will receive a plaque, a cash prize of $1,000, and the opportunity to present their dissertation research in a poster session at the next meeting of SIOP.

Criteria for Evaluation and Submissions

Dissertation summaries will be evaluated in terms of the following criteria:

1. The degree to which the research addresses a phenomenon that is of significance to the field of I-O psychology.

2. The extent to which the research shows appropriate consideration of relevant theoretical and empirical literature. This should be reflected in both the formulation of hypotheses tested and the selection of methods used in their testing.

3. The degree to which the research has produced findings that have high levels of validity (i.e., internal, external, construct, and statistical conclusion). The setting of the proposed research is of lesser importance than its ability to yield highly valid conclusions about a real-world phenomenon of relevance to the field of I-O psychology. Thus, the methods of the research (including subjects, procedures, measures, manipulations, and data analytic strategies) should be specified in sufficient detail to allow for an assessment of the capacity of the proposed research to yield valid inferences.

4. The extent to which the author (a) offers reasonable interpretations of the results of his or her research, (b) draws appropriate inferences about the theoretical and applied implications of the same results, and (c) suggests promising directions for future research.

5. The degree to which the research yields information that is both practically and theoretically relevant and important.

6. The extent to which ideas in the proposal are logically, succinctly, and clearly presented.

Guidelines for Submission of Proposal

1. Entries may be submitted only by individuals who are endorsed (sponsored) by a member of SIOP, the American Psychological Society, or the American Psychological Association.

2. Each entrant should submit 10 copies of their paper (not to exceed 30 pages of double-spaced text) based on his or her dissertation. The name of the entrant, institutional affiliation, current mailing address, and phone number should appear only on the title page of the paper.

3. Papers are limited to a maximum of 30 double-spaced pages. This limit includes the title page, abstract, text, tables, figures, and appendices. However, it excludes references.

4. Papers should be prepared in accord with the guidelines provided in the current edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Note, however, that the abstract may contain up to 300 words.

5. The paper must be based on a dissertation that was accepted by the graduate college 2 years or less before June 1, 2002, with the stipulation than an entrant may only submit once.

6. The entrant must provide a letter from his or her dissertation chair that specifies the date of acceptance of the dissertation by the graduate school of the institution and that the submission adequately represents all aspects of the completed dissertation. In addition, the entrant must provide a letter of endorsement from a member of SIOP, the American Psychology Society, or the American Psychological Association who is familiar with the entrants dissertation. Both of these letters may be from the same individual.

7. Entries (accompanied by supporting letters) must be received by June 1, 2002.

 Administrative Procedures

1. All entries will be reviewed by the Awards Committee of SIOP.

2. The Awards Committee will make a recommendation to the Executive Committee of SIOP about the award winning dissertation and, if appropriate, up to two dissertations deserving honorable mention status.

4. In the absence of a dissertation that is deemed deserving of the award by both the Awards Committee and the Executive Committee, the award may be withheld.
