Call For Papers

23rd Annual
Moskowitz Prize for Responsible Investment
Center for Responsible Business
Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley

Submission Deadline: June 30, 2018 11:59PM PST (GMT -7)

The Moskowitz Prize recognizes outstanding research on responsible investment and the financial implications of responsible business practices in capital markets. First presented in 1996, by the U.S. Social Investment Forum, the Prize has been awarded by the Center for Responsible Business at UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business since 2005. It is named for Milton Moskowitz, one of the first investigators to study the financial performance of responsible investment portfolios. His distinguished works include "The 100 Best Companies to Work for in America", an annual list published in Fortune magazine, and "The Global Marketplace: 102 of the Most Influential Companies Outside America".

The Moskowitz Prize has a longstanding focus on quantitative papers about assets traded in public markets that would be of interest to investment practitioners. Although the prize is usually awarded for a finance paper, past winners have also included papers from the fields of economics and management. The Prize welcomes a variety of topics as long as the paper follows the below criteria.

Both published papers and working papers are eligible. Working papers should be of a quality suitable for publication in a peer-reviewed academic journal. Studies will be considered for the Prize only once. Past Moskowitz winners are welcome to enter the competition with new work, and multiple submissions from an author/group of authors are accepted.

The prize-winning study is selected by a panel of judges from academia and the investment industry (see here for the list of judges). Honorable mentions or additional monetary prizes may be awarded at the judges' discretion. The Journal of Investing customarily accepts the winning study for publication, although authors are not required to do so.

Judging criteria include:
- Significance to practitioners of sustainable and/or responsible investment
- Innovativeness of research question and approach
- Appropriateness and rigor of methods

The winning study's author(s) will be notified in September and invited to the 29th annual SRI Conference, November 1-3, 2018, at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO, where the prize will be awarded. They will also have a breakout session in which to present their winning study and discuss the implications of their work with the audience.

The winning paper author(s) will receive a monetary award of $5,000. They will also be reimbursed reasonable travel expenses for attending The SRI Conference (maximum of $2,500 and economy airfare only).
