In 2011 the Journal of Management Studies launched the annual Grigor McClelland Dissertation Award, named after the journal's founding editor. The prize recognises authors who have published particularly innovative management scholarship in their PhD thesis. The winning author receives £5,000. The award is sponsored by the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies, and presented at the annual conference of the European Group for Organizational Studies. The Award "aims to promote and recognize innovative PhD research in management and organization studies" and "does not specify any preferences towards topics or methods". The Award's "primary focus is to recognize and award doctoral research that is expansive and imaginative in that it covers significantly new terrain or counters existing thinking within management and organisational research".
