    Here is more information about the award and eligibility:

    The Most Influential Article Award is given each year to an article or chapter published 5-8 years in the past that has made a significant and influential contribution to research in the Conflict Management Division (CMD) domain. Possible indicators of influence on the field might include citation count, generative research and theory impact, and wide use in doctoral seminars, among others. We encourage nominations of articles that our members have used in doctoral seminars or that have been important in guiding their own research. 

    To be eligible for this award, the article should be published (not pre-published online version or only in press) in the years 2015, 2016, 2017, or 2018, and be within the domain statement of the CM Division. A winning paper will be selected by a committee of five prominent scholars in the field invited by the Division Chair. The committee will consider papers from two sources: Those submitted in response to the "call for nominations," and those from a collective search of papers within the eligible date range and CM domain by the committee. Self-nominations are welcome and the paper does not need to be authored by a CM Division member. Please send in the full citation for the paper. The award will be presented at the annual conference during the CMD business meeting on Sunday, August 6, 2023, in Boston, MA.
