Procedure


  • The ERIM Scientific Director decides on all ERIM Membership issues.
  • Any application for a new (associate) ERIM Membership should be submitted to the Scientific Director of ERIM by one of the ERIM Fellows of the ERIM Research Programme in which the proposed new member will do the research.
  • Application for associate membership should include a research plan for the next two years, and proof of acceptance of papers, if applicable.
  • Associate Members who wish to apply for conversion to regular ERIM Membership should submit their request via one of the ERIM Fellows in their ERIM Research Programme.
  • During the first half of each calendar year, the status of all ERIM (Associate) Members is evaluated in the annual membership check.
  • If a Member has not been able to meet the ERIM Membership criteria he/she will receive a warning (with a copy to the Fellows of the Research Programme the member is affiliated to and to the Department Chair). If a Member has not been able to meet the ERIM Membership criteria for two consecutive years, he/she will lose the ERIM Membership status.
  • ERIM evaluates high-performing membership in the first half of each year, based on the output of the previous five calendar years. An application for a new high-performance status can be submitted to the Scientific Director of ERIM through one of the ERIM Fellows from the corresponding ERIM Research Programme.
  • Decisions are based on articles and books that have actually been published, and have been registered in the EUR METIS registration system, including a full DOI (for articles). Decisions to convert associate membership to full membership can be based on (unconditionally) accepted publications, provided evidence is given.
  • There is an appeals procedure for persons whose application for ERIM Membership is refused. The Committee of Appeal consists of two (former) professors with a strong track record in research in management (not currently employed at Erasmus University). This Committee can be asked to give a judgement on whether or not the Scientific Director of ERIM has correctly applied the rules defined in this Charter.
