Recognition awards for quality publications (à 2,000 euro or à 4,000 euro)

The HSE Support Foundation grants researchers at Aalto University School of Business recognition awards of 2,000 or 4,000 euros for research papers already published in selected high-quality journals either in the form of an official online version or paper version. These awards are recognition for especially meritorious research work.

The awards can only be given to authors whose home university at the time of publication of the article is Aalto University School of Business and for publications where their affiliation is stated to be Aalto University School of Business.

At the time of publication, the researcher has to be employed at least 50% by the School of Business, or the school has to be the main academic affiliation of the researcher or emeritus/ emerita -researcher. The recognition award is divided evenly among the authors affiliated with the School of Business. The authors receive a personal grant calculated based on their percentage share of the total number of authors of the publication. In addition, if there are co-authors not working at Aalto University School of Business, authors affiliated with the school obtain equal shares of the remaining part of the recognition award as research grants (through their Aalto University School of Business project account and against original expense receipts) to cover future research expenses accrued while working at the school.

If the grant recipient does not do research work as a researcher of Aalto University School of Business, the research grant will not be paid. In case the grant recipient resigns from the school before the last day when the research grant could be raised, the unused part of the research grant reverts to the HSE Support Foundation.

1st category: a grant of 4,000 euros is awarded for a publication in a journal on the FT50 list.

The Financial Times, FT50, Link: http://libguides.mcmaster.ca/ft-top50

2nd category: a grant of 2,000 euros is awarded for a publication in a journal on the ABS 4 list or JUFO 3 (the Finnish Publication Forum) list.

Recognition awards for high quality publications can be applied for by filling in the electronic application form during the official application periods in February and September.

Please note: One application per article, meaning that one person from the research group fills in the application with relevant information for all authors of the article. Applications should include the name(s) of the authors of the article, personal data of researchers at the Aalto University School of Business (name, social security number, degree/tittle, IBAN-BIC -bank account number and home address). The published article should be appended to the application.

The recognition awards are given twice a year, in connection with the grant announcements made in the spring and the autumn.
