Dear Colleagues,

In 2017, a new “Best Book of the Year Award” was started by the Academy.
We are now very pleased to launch the second edition of this award which is accompanied with a cash prize of €2500. 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 (in the future we hope to extend this to more languages). Date of publication must be the last year before the conference (for 2018: books with 2017 as year of publication). All fields of management are included.
