We compute the next-to-leading order corrections to the cross section for the production of electroweak gauge bosons with large transverse momentum in double (longitudinally) polarized hadronic collisions. The calculation is fully performed in the ?t Hooft, Veltman, Breitenlohner, and Maison scheme within dimensional regularization with a careful treatment of issues arising due to the appearance of γ5 in polarization projectors and axial couplings. We study the phenomenological consequences of the next-to-leading-order corrections at the level of both the double polarized cross section and the corresponding asymmetries at Relativist Heavy Ion Collider kinematics.
