Management Publication of the Year Awards 2024


Introduction and Categories

Welcome to the official submission site for the inaugural Management Publication of the Year Awards 2024.

The British Academy of Management (BAM), Chartered Management Institute (CMI), and the Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS) are delighted to announce the launch of the ‘Management Publication of the Year awards’. These awards will celebrate substantial business and management research that is informing policy, business, and third sector practices.

A form to submit your nomination follows this supporting information. This submission site will close at 16.00 (BST) on Friday 5th July 2024.

Award Categories

Entries of substantial publications are invited in three broad categories to be judged from the shortlists. An overall winner will also be selected by the judging panel. To reflect the reach that research has in the digital age, we welcome books or equivalents that are published in alternative formats including books, eBooks, podcast series, blog series, and film. 
Single journal articles do not qualify. 

1. Sustainable Futures

This category will celebrate research that sets out to positively impact people and planet

2. SME Growth

This category will celebrate research that seeks to address the challenges SMEs face in achieving growth

3. Social Enterprise and Innovation

This category will celebrate research into social enterprise and innovation

Running across these broad award categories is a common desire to recognise research that is impacting socio-economic and environmental concerns of our society. We want to celebrate research that will help us lead, manage and re-organise socio-economic lives in a way which creates an everyone economy: a productive, green economy that is good for people and the Planet.

The judges will be looking for works that display originality, significance and rigour along with potential for impact in real world environments.

Sustainable Futures:

This category will celebrate research that sets out to positively impact people and planet. Increased understanding of Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Respect as an approach to leadership, business and management, in all sectors, is helping our society reflect on the type of world we want to live in, our collective values and new ways of generating and distributing wealth to ensure the wellbeing of people and our planet.  At the same time, our understanding of a greening economy, our transition to such, and the leadership and management of such is also accelerating at pace. We want to celebrate the best of research that takes people and planet into account, and maps innovative steps towards positive change.

SME Growth:

Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) often struggle to access the resources, expertise and knowledge they need to achieve the growth they imagine. This category celebrates research that seeks to address these challenges and aims to transform practice by presenting insights to positively impact a green growth economy.

Social Enterprise and Innovation: 

Not all business or organisational activity is directed towards profit and maximised return. This category will celebrate research into social enterprise and innovation, looking at research into communities and their organisation, not for profit and third sector organisations and social enterprise research that reveals the problems they face and valuable insights into the process, practices and possibilities for positive collective action.
