We would like to invite you to nominate papers for the 2019 ENRE-Natural Resources Best Publication Awards. This award is given annually to outstanding a refereed journal article in the area of Natural Resources. This year, only those papers published between Jan. 1, 2016 and Dec. 31, 2018 are eligible for an award. A paper can be nominated only by a current ENRE member (2019 active membership is required), but the authors of the nominated papers may not necessarily be ENRE members. Self-nominations are welcome as long as at least one of the authors is an ENRE member. Papers that have already won an ENRE award in the past are not eligible for nomination for any award this year. A paper can be nominated for more than one area award, but it cannot receive more than one award. In your nomination package, please indicate if the paper has been nominated for more than one area award this year.
All nominations must be received by June 30, 2019. The nominators should send an email to Mohamad Hejazi (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jing Liu (email@example.com) accompanied with a package including two documents, both in pdf format, containing:
· The information on the nominator, nominee, full reference of the article, and the area of nomination (i.e. Energy, Natural Resources, or Environment)
· A copy of the article written in English.
The winner(s) will give a short presentation of the winning paper in the ENRE Awards Session during the 2019 INFORMS Annual Meeting in Seattle. The presenter must register for the conference and will be responsible for the associated travel and registration expenses. The award includes an official plaque/certificate from INFORMS.
