Responsible research is definedas studies that produce both credible and useful knowledge. Credibility refers to the reliability and validity or trustworthiness of the findings, in either inductive or deductive work, using either qualitative or quantitative data, or both. Usefulness refers to the potential of the knowledge to inform policies and practices. The purpose of responsible research is to encourage methodologically rigorous and societally beneficial studies, which contributes knowledge with the potential to make the world a better place. We call for nominations of published work that exemplifies the principles of responsible research.
The Community for Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM) is dedicated to inspiring, encouraging, and supporting credible and useful research in the business and management disciplines.

A Committee of Academic and Executive Reviewers
A strong team of academics and executives will assess the nominations. The Committee comprises accomplished scholars, including Fellows of professional associations as well as senior executives from leading organizations. The Academic reviewers will assess the nominations for both credibility and usefulness while the executive reviewers will focus primarily on the potential usefulness of the research findings to inform societally beneficial management or business practices.
