It demonstrates high scientific quality through advancing knowledge in the fields of service (operations) management. This study therefore is an excellent example of the kind of research advocated by and conducted within our research school ERIM. We are proud that it is acknowledged as such by Emerald/EFMD.” (Professor Ale Smidts, Scientific Director of ERIM, the Erasmus Research Institute of Management) The awards, a collaboration between Emerald Group Publishing and the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), were open to those who completed and satisfied examination requirements for a Doctoral award between 1 June 2005 and 1 October 2007, and had not applied for an Outstanding Doctoral Research Award previously.
