AIB 2008 Annual Meeting
June 30- July 3, 2008
Conference Program Awards
In 2002, Temple University's Fox School of Business kindly agreed to endow an award for the best paper at the AIB annual meetings. All of the accepted papers are eligible for the award. The finalists are nominated by the program chair, track chairs and reviewers. The Best Paper Award committee reviews the finalist papers to choose the winning paper and the first runner-up. The winner, announced at the Awards Session on the last day of the conference, receives a plaque and a US$1000 award.
The Academy of International Business Foundation and the Eldridge Haynes Memorial Trust award the Haynes Prize for Best Paper. The winning paper must have been accepted for presentation at the AIB conference through the double-blind-review process, and have been written by an author or authors under 40 years of age. The winner is selected by the AIB Best Paper Selection Committee. The author receives a plaque and a US$1000 award at the awards session on the last day of the conference.
The practice of issuing an annual Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) Decade Award was initiated at the 1996 Annual Conference of the Academy of International Business (AIB). The Executive Board of the AIB endorses the award.
The award is designed to recognise the most influential paper published in the Journal of International Business Studies one decade before the Annual Conference (1998 for this year's award). One measure of influence is the degree to which candidate articles have been cited in the ten years following their publication. In order to be considered for this award, a paper must be included among the five most cited papers published in the JIBS Volume of that year.
The Selection Committee consists of a chair (nominated by the Editor-in-Chief) as well as the current and previous Program Chairs of the AIB Annual Conference. The Editor-in-Chief serves as an ex officio member of this committee.
A special session is held at the Annual Conference, during which the winner makes a retrospective presentation of their work, as well as some comments on where the field has progressed and where it should go next. The winner is then recognized at the Awards Session on the last day of the conference.
The Academy of International Business also recognizes the contributions that our reviewers make in putting together a quality program and, as a result, a successful conference. In recognition of these contributions, each year, the Program Committee (the Program Chair and Track Chairs) identify those reviewers that have gone above and beyond the duty of reviewing manuscripts for the conference in providing quality, constructive feedback to the authors. The recipient(s) of the Best Reviewer Award receive a certificate of recognition are also recognized at the Conference Program as well as during the Awards Session on the last day of the conference.
