Best Paper for Proceedings

The Best Paper for Proceedings award recognizes the outstanding research and practice described in the ABC Annual Conference Proceedings, which are submitted by conference presenters. An editorial review team of more than 15 business communication scholars and practitioners carefully review each proceedings submission, and those papers that demonstrate the highest quality research or practice, outstanding writing, and the most promise for the field are selected for the Best Paper for Proceedings award.
