IJRM-EMAC Steenkamp Award
The Jan-Benedict E.M. Steenkamp Award for Long-Term Impact—established by EMAC and IJRM in 2009 and named after Jan-Benedict E.M. Steenkamp (Knox Massey Distinguished Professor of Marketing at the Kenan-Flagler Business School of the University of North Carolina)—is given annually to papers published in IJRM in recognition of their exceptional contributions to academic marketing research by demonstrating long-term impact. The IJRM Editor-in-Chief and the EMAC VP of Publications form a 4-member Award Committee (IJRM Area/Senior Editors representing the three key domains of marketing: consumer behavior, strategy, and modeling) that will manage the nomination and selection procedure.
Papers published in IJRM 10 to 15 years prior to the year the award is being presented are eligible. (Papers that have already won this award or are (co)authored by Jan-Benedict Steenkamp and/or by the current IJRM Editor are not eligible.) Nominations are first invited from EMAC members and the IJRM Editorial Board. The nominated papers comprise the first-round ballot from which only the members of the IJRM Editorial Board can vote for up to 5 papers (self-voting is not allowed). The 10 papers that receive the most votes in the first round make up the second-and-final-round ballot from which the Editorial Board can choose only 1 paper. After receiving the votes, the Award Committee deliberates on the winning paper guided by the following criteria: (1) the votes received from the IJRM Editorial Board, (2) its ISI and Google Scholar citations, and (3) its quality, as assessed by the committee's in-depth reading. (There can be two winners in exceptional cases but not more than once every 3 years on average).
