Dr. Marcia Simmering -Dickerson, the Humana Foundation/McCallister Professor of Management at Louisiana Tech, was among three academics to receive the 2009 Best Paper Award for organizational research methods.
The Organizational Research Methods Editorial Board and its scholarly publication, Organizational Research Methods (ORM), bestowed the award upon the three co-authors for their 2009 ORM article titled, “A Tale of Three Perspectives: Examining Post Hoc Statistical Techniques for Detection and Correction of Common Method Variance.”
The award recognizes the most outstanding paper from among all the articles that appear in the journal over a year’s time.  Organizational Research Methods brings relevant methodological developments to a wide range of researchers in organizational and management studies and promotes a more effective understanding of current and new methodologies and their application in organizational settings.
The Research Methods (RM) Division of the Academy of Management sponsors Organizational Research Methods.  In just a few years of publication, ORM has achieved great visibility as evidenced by its placement in the Top Ten of most prestigious journals.
Simmering-Dickerson, who joined the Louisiana Tech College of Business in 2003, received her doctorate in management from Michigan State University and has focused on business training, compensation and research methods throughout her career.  Simmering -Dickerson’s co-authors on the award-winning article were Hettie A. Richardson of Louisiana State University and Michael C. Sturman of Cornell University.
