Dr Gillian Ragsdell’s paper “Integrating ‘self-efficacy’ theory to the Motivation-Opportunity-Ability (MOA) model to reveal factors that influence inclusive engagement within local community festivals”, co-authored with Allan Jepson and Alan Clarke and published in International Journal of Event and Festival Management, was selected by the journal’s editorial team and awarded ‘Outstanding Paper of 2014’.

Dr Ragsdell said:

I am very proud to have received this award – the paper complemented my work on knowledge management in festivals very well. Allan Jepson, University of Hertfordshire, was the first author, and I am looking forward to working with him on a funding application to progress our work in this context.
