Jef­frey Callen, a pro­fes­sor of account­ing at the Rot­man School, received a Dis­tin­guished Schol­ar­ly Con­tri­bu­tion Award from the School. The annu­al award is giv­en out in recog­ni­tion of a fac­ul­ty mem­ber’s aca­d­e­m­ic achieve­ments and long-stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions to the inter­nal and exter­nal research com­mu­ni­ties.

Prof. Callen, who has been at the Rot­man School since 2000, is also the hold­er of the Joseph L. Rot­man Chair of Account­ing. His research inter­ests include cor­po­rate val­u­a­tion, account­ing infor­ma­tion and cap­i­tal mar­kets, effi­cien­cy mea­sure­ment and the non-prof­it firm. He is the for­mer Edi­tor-in-Chief of the Jour­nal of Account­ing, Audit­ing and Finance. Cur­rent­ly he is an Edi­tor of Con­tem­po­rary Account­ing Research, a Co-Edi­tor of the Inter­na­tion­al Jour­nal of Account­ing, and an Asso­ciate Edi­tor of the Multi­na­tion­al Finance Jour­nal.

The award is giv­en out by the Soci­ety for Per­son­al­i­ty and Social Psy­chol­o­gy.  “Sign­ing at the begin­ning makes ethics salient and decreas­es dis­hon­est self-reports in com­par­i­son to sign­ing at the end” was pub­lished in 2012 in the Pro­ceed­ings of the Nation­al Acad­e­my of Sci­ences.  Prof. Mažar’s co-authors were Lisa Shu of the Kel­logg School of Man­age­ment, Prof. Dan Ariely of Duke Uni­ver­si­ty, and Profs.
