Showcase your University’s research by entering the CMI Management Articles of the Year

The annual CMI Management Articles of the Year Award entries are open – gain recognition for your research and win £1,000.

The aim of this competition is to showcase research articles written with a practitioner audience in mind. It offers business and management academics a unique opportunity to share their ideas with practicing managers. This undoubtedly will increase the awareness and the likelihood of adoption, and hence broaden the impact of their research. The winning article will receive a cash prize of £1,000.

Working in collaboration with the British Academy of Management, Association of Business Schools, The Association of MBAs and the British Library, this innovative initiative is sponsored by John Wiley and Sons Ltd, one of the world’s leading business publishers.

This scheme is designed to help:

  • Demonstrate impact – previous academics have used this scheme as part of their REF impact submissions
  • Reach a wider audience – the articles will be accessible by over 100,000 professional CMI members who will have the opportunity to read, evaluate and comment on it
  • Celebrate success – the author of the winning article will receive £1,000 cash prize and runners-up will be invited to a high-profile Awards Evening at the British Library.

“Management Articles of the Year gives managers the opportunity to stay up to date with the latest and best thinking from British Business Schools. Opening up research and data to a wider audience can help to foster innovation, drive growth and create new areas of academic discovery".
Universities and Science Minister David Willetts
