This module offers students opportunities to examine the theories and research associated with a range of different disciplines that focus on relationships between family life and work life. The module is organized around articles that have been nominated for the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for Work-Family Research. This award process identifies exemplary work-family research articles published over the course of the previous year. Each of these articles has been subjected to two separate peer review processes: (1) The peer review of the manuscript prior to being accepted and published by a scholarly journal; and (2) The peer review process associated with the annual Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for Work-Family Research. The module's contents provide information related to: (1) Similarities and differences in the theoretical perspectives of a range of social science disciplines; (2) The connections between research questions and data collection methodologies in different disciplines; (3) Characteristics of exemplary research; and (4) The peer review tradition in scientific knowledge-building. (Contains 4 online resources.) [This paper was prepared with the help of Judi C. Casey, Karen Corday, and Christina Matz.
