Prof Cooke selected as finalist for Award for Excellence in Work-Family Research
15 June 2012
Professor Lynn Prince Cooke has had her 2010 article Wives’ Part-time Employment and Marital Stability in Great Britain, West Germany and the United States selected as a finalist in the annual competition for the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for Excellence in Work-Family Research. The article was co-written with Vanessa Gash (University of Manchester).
The Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for Excellence in Work-Family Research is a partnership of the Center for Families at Purdue University, the Center for Work and Family at Boston College, and the Alliance of Work-Life Progress.
The award raises awareness of excellent work-family research among the scholar, consultant, and practitioner communities to foster debate about what the standards of quality for work-family research should be to raise those standards. The award identifies the “best of the best” on which to base future research.
Finalists are selected via a very rigorous process. A committee of over 35 leading scholars, from five countries, examined over 2,500 articles published in 77 leading English-language journals from around the world. A three-stage process led to final selections (no external nominations were solicited or accepted). Seven papers were considered as finalists during the third round of reviews.
Speaking about the award, Professor Cooke commented: “It is a great honour to have such a prestigious panel of international experts select our article as exemplary scholarship in the field of work and family research.”
