MOR/PUP – Best Paper Award of Chinese Theory of Management

To promote original theorizing to account for management phenomena that are relatively salient in China, Peking University Press (PUP) has set up the MOR/PUP Best Paper Award of Chinese Theory of Management. The award is intended to especially encourage research on “Indigenous Chinese theory of management”. It is important for Chinese management researchers to be innovative in their theoretical analysis. The award aims to recognize the best paper published in MOR that addresses new research questions, identifies new concepts, and/or develop new theories from the “Chinese theory of management” perspective. The winning paper is selected from the articles published in MOR in the past two years.
