Dear Colleagues,
If you have published a book in 2018, you might wish to take part in the Best Book of the Year Award scheme which EURAM has launched in 2017. The Award is accompanied with a cash prize of €2500.  
It 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 (in the future we hope to extend this to more languages). Date of publication must be the last year before the conference (for 2019: books with 2018 as year of publication). All fields of management are included.

A nomination for a book can be made either by any Strategic Interest Group (SIG), or by any individual, including self-nominations. For the selection committee, three copies (either hard or e-copy) will need to be made available. 

At least one of the authors of the nominated book should be either a current member of EURAM or become a member in order to be nominated for the Award (please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for queries about membership status).

There is no formal nomination form, but the nomination document should be no longer than 600 words (plus a short cover letter).

Nominations should be submitted to the Vice President Research via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view 31 January 2019. 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 Lisbon in June 2019.
