Jennifer Robertson
 and Bonnie Simpson both received Emerald Citations of Excellence for 2016 (citations below). These distinguished annual awards recognize the most outstanding articles published by the top 300 management journals in the word. With 15,000 article abstracts published in these journals annually, receiving a Citation of Excellence is an extraordinary achievement and represents one of the highest accolades than an author can achieve. The selection process made by editorial experts is based initially on the citations being given to papers published in a previous year (in this case 2013), but a judging panel also takes into account the content of the papers themselves in terms of novelty, inter-disciplinary interest and relevancy in today’s world. These awards will be presented in 2016.
