    Dear Colleagues,

    Happy New Year!

    The deadline for submission to POMS HOCM Best Paper Award Competition has been extended to January 30th.

    The POMS College of Humanitarian Operations & Crisis Management (HOCM) invites all participants to submit their papers to the HOCM Best Paper Award Competition. The objective of the competition is to identify and honor outstanding unpublished papers in the fast-growing field of HOCM. Naturally, the topic of the paper should fall within the scope of HOCM. Submissions will be judged based on four criteria: (1) contributions towards the advancement of theory of HOCM; (2) methodological rigor; (3) practical relevance; and (4) how well the paper opens up new avenues of research. The best paper will receive an expedite review process from the POM journal, if it is submitted to the POM Department of Disaster Management. All research methods, including field/case studies, empirical and analytical methods are welcome. In order to be considered for the best paper award, the paper must be presented at the HOCM track.
