Each year during the Annual Meeting, the Academy of Management recognizes authors of journal articles that were published in the previous year in each of the Academy's six journals. The selection process for the award committee for each journal is determined by the individual journal. In general, articles selected:
- Advance the mission of the individual publication;
- Bring forth core ideas that are original, important, and provocative;
- Have a clear and important contribution to the field of management
Editors create a separate advisory committee to determine and select the article(s) from the prior year as the "Best Article." Some publications feature other awards as well.
