Dear Colleagues,
If you have published a book in 2018, you might wish to take part in the Best Book of the Year Award scheme which EURAM has launched in 2017. The Award is accompanied with a cash prize of €2500.  
It is granted annually to a scholarly authored book in the general field of management studies (single or multiple authored). Only scholarly books/monographs (not edited books or textbooks) may be nominated. The language of the book should be English (in the future we hope to extend this to more languages). Date of publication must be the last year before the conference (for 2019: books with 2018 as year of publication). All fields of management are included.
