FACULTY RESEARCH AWARD NOMINATIONS DUE FEB. 14

In recognition of the contributions of researchers at Old Dominion University, a $1,000 award and a plaque are presented annually at the Faculty Recognition Dinner.

Nominations for the award, together with supporting documentation, should be sent to the Office of Research by Friday, Feb. 14. The nominating faculty member or administrator should write a short statement explaining why the researcher should get the award and outline the significance of the nominee's research contributions. In addition to this statement, a CV should be submitted. Six copies of the nomination package should be included.

The Research Achievement Award is presented each spring to a tenured member of the Old Dominion faculty who has exhibited consistent excellence in his or her research efforts. The purpose of the award is to recognize the accomplishments of faculty who achieve national prominence for high-quality research and scholarship.

The Research Achievement Award is presented each spring to a tenured member of the Old Dominion faculty who has exhibited consistent excellence in his or her research efforts. The purpose of the award is to recognize the accomplishments of faculty who achieve national prominence for high-quality research and scholarship.

All full-time tenured members of the faculty with at least five years' service at Old Dominion are eligible for the award. Full career accomplishments will be considered when a nominee is judged but special evaluative emphasis will be placed upon research actually done while the individual was at this university.

The evaluation of nominees will be based primarily upon considerations of consistent research quality. The primary indicators of quality are peer scholar judgments which are evidenced by publication of articles in refereed journals, publication of books and monographs by nationally competitive publishing houses, awards and citations by professional associations, and positive reviews of funded research proposals. In addition, consideration will be given to non-professional acclaim for the outcome of research endeavors.

Particular emphasis will be placed upon the consistency of the research record. However, simple quantitative measures, such as the number of articles published or the dollar value of grants and contracts generated, are not sufficient evidence of research quality.
