Journal of Advertising Best Article of the Year Award

The Journal of Advertising (JA) Best Article Award was instituted in 1988 to honor the best article published each year. The Chair of the AAA Publications Committee and the editor of JA jointly prepare the list of published papers for the President who forwards the list along with a request for nomination to all eligible AAA members. The Chair of the Publications Committee tabulates nominations received and prepares a list of five final nominated articles which is then voted on by JA's Editorial Review Board members. Authors of each year's Best Article Award are honored with a $500 check and a plaque during the annual AAA Conference.
