Thomas Fischer receives The Leadership Quarterly Best Article Award


Professor Thomas Fischer has been awarded The Leadership Quarterly Best Article Award. The annual award is given in recognition of the best published paper submitted during the previous year to the top-tier journal, The Leadership Quarterly.

The winning paper, Ethical leadership: Mapping the terrain for concept cleanup and a future research agenda, is co-authored with George C. Banks, Janaki Gooty, and George Stock from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The article addresses critical limitations that have obstructed theoretical advancements in ethical leadership research. This was achieved by distinguishing followers' evaluations from ethical leadership behavior (ELB), presenting a new definition for ELB, and developing an agenda for future research to lead ethical leadership toward greater theoretical advancements, and for better training and development for leaders in practice.

The Leadership Quarterly is a social science journal dedicated to advancing the understanding of leadership as a phenomenon, how to study it and its practical implications. The journal publishes scholarly research, theory, and developmental application from diverse fields of inquiry about leadership.
