Congratulations to Elizabeth Westrupp and Amanda Cooklin. Their 2016 article “Maternal work–family conflict and psychological distress: reciprocal relationships over 8 years” published in the Journal of Marriage and the Family (Quintile 1 journal for both family studies and sociology) was awarded the honor of nominee for the annual Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for Excellence in Work-Family Research.
The award is given to the authors of the best research paper published in a given year. Elizabeth and Amanda’s paper with long-standing collaborators from ANU (Lyndall Strazdins), U TAS (Ange Martin), and UWA (Steve Zubrick), made the shortlist of the top 15 articles for 2016.
A joint project of the Center for Families at Purdue University and the Boston College Center for Work & Family, the international award raises the awareness of high quality work-family research among the scholar, consultant and practitioner communities. External nominations are not accepted. A very rigorous process involving nomination and review by a committee of over 60 leading scholars determined this year nominees from over 2500 articles published in 65 leading English-language journals from around the world.
