CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: Linda L. Putnam Early Career Scholar Award

Posted By Sean M. Eddington, Thursday, February 28, 2019

The ICA Organizational Communication Division is seeking nominations for the Linda L. Putnam Early Career Scholar Award.

This award recognizes the contributions of an early career scholar to organizational communication research.

Specifically, this award honors a scholar no more than six years past receipt of the doctoral degree for a body of work that has made a significant contribution to the field of organizational communication and shows promise for continued development. The selection committee judges the contributions and promise of an early career scholar based on the strength of her or his published work, including, but not limited to, its conceptual foundation, argumentative clarity, and rigor; its influence on the field (e.g., as judged by positive citations); the scholar’s productivity at a given career stage; and the promise of existing work serving as a springboard for continuing organizational communication scholarship.

Please submit the nominations and address any questions to Brenda L. Berkelaar, 2019 Selection Committee Chair

------

This award recognizes the contributions of an early career scholar to organizational communication research. Because of a generous endowment gift from Linda Putnam to support beginning and early career scholars, the division will vote on renaming this award the Linda L. Putnam Early Career Scholar Award at our business meeting in San Diego.

Specifically, this award honors a scholar no more than six years past receipt of the doctoral degree for a body of work that has made a significant contribution to the field of organizational communication and shows promise for continued development. The selection committee judges the contributions and promise of an early career scholar based on the strength of her or his published work, including, but not limited to, its conceptual foundation, argumentative clarity, and rigor; its influence on the field (e.g., as judged by positive citations); the scholar’s productivity at a given career stage; and the promise of existing work serving as a springboard for continuing organizational communication scholarship.

Nomination Rules:

Each year, the division chair forms a selection committee of four scholars (ensuring national, gender, and epistemological diversity).

The nominee must be a member of the Organizational Communication Division at the time of nomination.

The award may not be given if the committee judges that no nominated candidate meets the criteria. In case of a tie, two awards may be given.

Nominees should not have received their doctoral degree more than 6 years prior to the current year in which the award will be made. For the award to be presented in 2019, the nominee should have received his or her doctorate no earlier than 2013.

Nominees will usually be in their 5th or 6th (final) year of eligibility. An eligible scholar may be nominated for the award no more than twice (and may win no more than once). Nomination packets will not be automatically reconsidered the following year even if the nominee is still eligible.

The award recipient will be announced during the division business meeting at the annual conference of the ICA and will receive a plaque.

Nomination Procedures:

Nominees for the 2019 award should be submitted via email to Selection Committee Chair, Brenda L. Berkelaar (b.berkelaar@polymtl.ca) by Friday, March 15, 2019. Please use the subject “2019 ICA Org Comm Early Career Nomination” and note the following: 

Nomination packets must be submitted digitally to the committee chair as a single PDF file that includes:
