Recognition awards for quality publications (à 5,000 euro or à 2,500 euro)
The HSE Support Foundation grants researchers at Aalto University School of Business recognition awards of 5,000 or 2,500 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 or emeritus/emerita of the School of Business, or the school has to be their main academic affiliation.
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 share 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.
In case the grant recipient resigns from the school, the unused part of the research grant reverts to the HSE Support Foundation.
1st category: a grant of 5,000 euros is awarded for a publication in a journal on the FT50 list or on the ABS/AJG 4* list.
2nd category: a grant of 2,500 euros is awarded for a publication in a journal on the ABS/AJG 4 list or JUFO 3 (the Finnish Publication Forum) list
