We are pleased to announce that the platform for nominating the Best Book of the Year is open.
The Award is granted annually to a scholarly authored book in the general field of management studies (single or multiple authored). Only scholarly books/monographs (not edited books or textbooks) may be nominated. The language of the book should be English. Date of publication must be the last year before the annual conference (for 2020: books with 2019 as year of publication). All fields of management are included. The Award is accompanied with a cash prize of € 2,500.
A nomination for a book can be made either by a Strategic Interest Group (SIG), or by any individual, including self-nominations online. There is no formal nomination form, but the nomination document should be no longer than 600 words (plus a short cover letter).
Upon submission, you may upload an e-book. EURAM head office will contact you prior to review to let you know where to send three copies of your book.
Nominations should be submitted online https://www.xcdsystem.com/euram/abstract/index.cfm?ID=VfJIJe0 by 31 January 2020. A designated committee will choose the winner, based on the criteria of scholarly impact – rigor and relevance of the book – with consideration for the ‘European’ element of the book.
The winner(s) will be announced at the EURAM Conference in Dublin in June 2020.
