About the Journal of International Business Studies Decade Award 

The practice of issuing an annual Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) Decade Award was initiated at the 1996 Annual Conference of the Academy of International Business (AIB). The Executive Board of the AIB endorses the award.
The award is designed to recognise the most influential paper published in the Journal of International Business Studies volume one decade prior and is presented at the AIB Annual Conference. One measure of influence is the degree to which candidate articles have been cited in the ten years following their publication. In order to be considered for this award, a paper must be included among the five most cited papers published in the JIBS Volume of that year.
The Selection Committee includes the current and previous AIB Program Chairs, a chair chosen by the JIBS Editor-in-Chief, and the JIBS Editor-in-Chief (ex officio).
A special session is held at the Annual Conference, during which the winner makes a retrospective presentation of their work, as well as some comments on where the field has progressed and where it should go next.
