Dr. Chansoo Park

Oct. 5, 2015

Dr. Chansoo Park has been named 2014’s outstanding reviewer by the Canadian Journal of Administrative Science (CJAS).

Dr. Park, an assistant professor of international business at Memorial University’s Faculty of Business Administration, received the certificate of recognition at the Academy of Management conference in Vancouver in August.

Dr. Park said he was “so glad” to receive this recognition and that this has given him encouragement and passion and drives him to work harder.

The journal gives special recognition to scholars whose work as a reviewer is of such outstanding quality that authors are assisted in their research regardless of whether the manuscript is published.

Dr. Vishwanath Baba, editor-in-chief of CJAS, said in an email that Dr. Park is “a reviewer [who] has gone above and beyond that which is expected of a reviewer in providing outstanding comments to authors of a manuscript reviewed for CJAS in 2014.”

Dr. Park is originally from Seoul, South Korea and has been teaching at Memorial University since 2013. His research interests include knowledge transfer, multinational enterprise strategy and culture.

The CJAS was established by the Administrative Sciences Association of Canada in 1983. A multidisciplinary business journal, it publishes papers from international contributors on marketing, strategic management, international business, accounting, finance and organizational and human resources management.

Dr. Park has been reviewing papers in the field of strategic management and international business since 2013.
