The William R. Darden Best Research Methodology Paper Award is awarded to an outstanding paper that includes rigorous application or advancement of methods or tools related to marketing research. The award was named in honor and memory of Dr. William R. Darden, who was an early marketing pioneer in the application of multivariate data analysis and structural equations modeling, in particular. He held academic jobs at Louisiana State University, the University of Georgia and the University of Arkansas. Dr. Darden made numerous contributions to the marketing discipline, including being one of the most prolific contributors to the Journal of Marketing Research for a time and serving as the editor of the Journal of Retailing, the Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science and the Journal of Business Research.
