Emerald Announces Winners of 14th Annual Citation of Excellence Awards

UNITED KINGDOM, April 2010 - Emerald Group Publishing Limited is delighted to announce the winners of its 2009 Citation of Excellence Awards. Now in their fourteenth year, these distinguished annual awards recognize the 50 most outstanding articles published by the top 400 management journals in the world.

Each year the Emerald Management Reviews Accreditation Board, comprised of management experts from industry and academia including Cary Cooper, Philip Kotler, Darrell K. Rigby, and B. Joseph Pine II, selects the world's top 400 management titles. Independent subject experts then make a thorough and rigorous assessment of every article in each of these journals and, each year, 50 outstanding articles are singled out for a Citation of Excellence Award. Authors of the winning articles receive an official certificate and badge to display on their work. The award brings with it peer recognition and, frequently, increases in research funding.

“Receiving a Citation of Excellence Award is a truly prestigious achievement,” comments Debbie Spurgeon, Emerald Executive Editor, “There are over 15,000 article reviews added annually to the database and so being recognized as one of the top 50 is a real accolade.”

A full list of the 2009 winners, as well as lists of previous winners, is available at:
