“Reviewing is an important skill to develop from early on, and it’s the easiest way to serve the community. ” – Ninja Janardhanan, MOC Division Rep-at-Large, 2023 Dexter Award Winner

Reviewers play a pivotal role in shaping the program of the Annual Meeting, ensuring that the scholarly sessions continue to be of the highest quality. The reviewing period is from 18 January through 15 February, and you can sign up now!


Reviewing is a great skill for members of all levels of their career. Wendy K. Smith, Program Chair of the Organization and Management Theory division, recalls reviewing early in her career and what it has meant to her over time:

“I remember the first reviews I wrote as a doctoral student. I felt anxious – wanting to do a good job of reviewing, but not totally sure how to do it well.  I read the papers, wrote the reviews, and asked some mentors to read them and give me feedback. The experience left me feeling more confident in my scholarship and analysis, more prepared to review for journals and more connected with the division. Now as program chair, I see just how valuable each reviewer is in the process. I am now grateful to my previous younger PhD self or my professor self for writing reviews – just as I am now grateful to all the people who take the time to help make the program better overall.”

Exceptional reviewers are rewarded for their hard work from their Division and Interest Groups during the Annual Meeting. Saloni Sinha won the Outstanding Reviewer Award at AOM 2023 and Best Reviewer Award at AOM 2022 from the Management Education and Development division:

“My reviewer journey at AOM has been rewarding in every way. The most intriguing part of the process is the feedback the reviewers receive from submitters. It develops the critiquing ability and positive communication of the reviewer. I personally gained a lot of insights, enhanced my scholarship, and built my intellect as a researcher by reviewing and reading the reviews of other reviewers. It was an honor to be acknowledged and appreciated for volunteering to peer review Annual Meeting submissions. I hope to create more milestones in my reviewing role at the AOM Annual Meeting in future."
