Marketing Professor Venkatesh Shankar and co-author Ruth N. Bolton of Arizona State University were recognized during the American Marketing Association’s Winter Marketing Educators’ Conference in February.

Their paper, “An Empirically Derived Taxonomy of Retailer Pricing and Promotion Strategies,” won an honorable mention in the Journal of Retailing‘s William Davidson Best Paper Award competition. The Davidson awards — first prize and honorable mentions — are given annually to authors of leading retail-marketing articles published in the Journal. Awards are given two years after a paper’s original publication to allow for evaluation of the research’s effect on the field.
