The IJRM-EMAC Best Article Award is given annually to paper(s) published in IJRM in the year preceding the year the award is being presented. The winning article is chosen from two rounds of voting open only to all the members of the IJRM Editorial Board. In the first round, each voter nominates no more than three (3) papers that were published in IJRM in the preceding year. A shortlist is then made of the 3 articles (or more in case of a tie) with the most votes. In the second round, the members of the IJRM Editorial Board vote for only one (1) article from this shortlist. The paper(s) that receives the most votes is awarded the Best IJRM Article for the year.
