On May 22, Boris Maciejovsky, Assistant Professor of Management at the UC Riverside School of Business Administration was awarded the Raymond S. Nickerson Prize for the 2013 Best Paper in the American Psychological Association (APA) journal.

The award recognizes an article published in a one-year volume of the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied as having potential for enduring impact in the area of applied experimental psychology and representing an original empirical investigation in experimental psychology that bridges practically oriented problems and psychological theory.

“I’m thrilled about the news and very grateful about the recognition,” Maciejovsky said. “The prize provides a lot of motivation to keep producing good quality papers.”

The paper, jointly written with Professor David Budescu from Fordham University is entitled: Verbal and Numerical Consumer Recommendations: Switching Between Recommendation Formats Leads to Preference Inconsistencies. The award will be presented to Maciejovsky and Budescu during the Division 21 business meeting at the 2015 APA annual meeting in Toronto.

Maciejovsky joined the UCR School of Business Administration in July 2013 as the A. Gary Anderson Distinguished Scholar with his research interests in the area of decision-making in economic, social and organizational contexts. Prior to joining SoBA, he was a faculty member at Imperial College London, the London School of Economics, the Max Planck Institute of Economics, and the Humboldt University of Berlin.
