Each year the Fogelman College of Business & Economics presents awards for the best papers published by its faculty in the preceding year. The Ph.D. Sub-Council for Graduate Studies and Research evaluates submissions and makes selections for awards in two categories: Empirical Research and Conceptual/Theoretical Research. The 2010 awards were given at the fall Faculty and Staff meeting held August 25.

The first place winner in the Empirical Category was a paper co-authored by Fogelman faculty members Rabi S. Bhagat (Professor, Management) and Balaji Krishnan (Associate Professor, Marketing and Supply Chain Management), along with current and former doctoral students Terry A. Nelson, Karen Moustafa and Tejinder K. Billing. The award-winning paper, "Organizational Stress, Psychological Strain, and Work Outcomes in Six National Contexts," was published in IEEE Engineering Management Review.

The first place winner in the Conceptual/Theoretical Category was a paper co-authored by Robin S. Poston (Associate Professor, Management Information Systems) and Judy Simon (Professor, Management Information Systems) titled "Client Communication Practices in Managing Relationships with Offshore Vendors of Software Testing Services" in Communications of the Association for Information Systems. Second place in this category went to "Uncertainty, the Demand for Health Care, and Precautionary Saving," which appeared in The B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis and Policy. It was co-authored by William T. Smith (Professor, Economics) and economics doctoral graduate Diego Nocetti.

The first place winner in each category receives a plaque and $500; the second place winner receives a plaque and $250.
