About the prizes
At the November 2020 Editorial Board meeting, we announced the institution of a ‘Best Paper’ award and an ‘Outstanding Reviewer’ award, with the main objective to recognize the work of our authors and reviewers. We initiated this process by consulting our Associate Editors and Editorial Board members. After deliberation, it is with great pleasure that we announce the winners of the Accounting Forum ‘Best Paper’ and ‘Outstanding Reviewer’ awards.
The 2020 ‘Best Paper’ award is particularly poignant as the lead author of the winning paper, Mirwais Usmani, sadly passed away last year. We are pleased to pay tribute to his hard work and scholarship. We would like to thank our Associate Editors and Editorial Board members for taking the time to vote for these awards and hope you will join us in congratulating the winners.
