Marc Orlitzky (Ph.D. in Business Administration, University of Iowa) is Chair in Management (full professor) and Associate Director of the (new) Center for Business Ethics & Responsible Leadership (BERL) at the University of South Australia Business School. His previous positions include Lecturer at UNSW, Senior Lecturer above the Bar at the University of Auckland, and tenured Associate Professor at Penn State University, Altoona. With an L-Index (Belikov & Belikov, 2015) of 6.8, he has published research in, among others, Organization Studies, Organizational Research Methods, Business Ethics Quarterly, Academy of Management Perspectives, Journal of Business Ethics, Academy of Management Learning & Education (AMLE), and Personnel Psychology. His research has received several awards, including the 2004 Moskowitz award for outstanding quantitative study in the field of social investing and the 2001 Best Article Prize awarded by the International Association for Business & Society in association with California Management Review. Orlitzky et al.'s (2003) meta-analysis has become the most highly cited article ever published in the journal Organization Studies, garnering more than double the citations of the second-most highly cited article in this EGOS journal. More specifically, as of January 2018, this article was cited 1,824 times on the Web of Science/Social Science Citations Index (SSCI), while the most cited articles of 2003 in Academy of Management Journal (AMJ) and Academy of Management Review received only 597 and 1,225 citations, respectively. Only one AMJ article published since 2000 (Eisenhardt & Graebner, 2007) received more citations than this meta-analysis.
