Basis for Judgement: 
The Transactions EIC assembles the selection committee consisting of five current associate editors who will consider the nominations and make a recommendation for the best paper award. Nominated candidates for the award and members of the I&M Society Awards committee are not eligible to serve on the selection committee. The recommended paper information (title, publications date, etc.) and the authors’ names will be submitted to the Society Awards Committee for review prior to the Fall AdCom meeting. The I&M Awards Committee forwards its review to the AdCom for consideration at the Fall meeting. The AdCom votes at the Fall meeting whether to approve the recommendation.

This award is given each year to the author, or authors, of the outstanding paper published in the Transactions of the I&M Society during the previous year. Its purposes are; 1) to emphasize the importance of good authorship and timeliness of subject matter and 2) to stimulate interest in the Transactions.

Nominations are solicited by the Transactions Editor from the Associate and Guest Editors.
