PMWJ Author Awards


Editor’s Choice Awards

Many excellent works are published in the PM World Journal (PMWJ) each year by authors around the world.  At the end of the year, a number of articles and papers published in the PMWJ during the previous 12 months will be selected for recognition.  This awards program was launched in December 2017 with award winning works selected by PMWJ’s managing editor, and announced as the inaugural Editor’s Choice Awards.

Winners are in two categories: Papers and Articles.  The papers are selected from among ‘featured papers” only.  Although we publish excellent student papers and second editions, the PMWJ featured papers each month are original works by experienced and often very accomplished authors.  The articles must also be original, but are shorter in nature, often enlightening and useful to program and project managers worldwide. Award winning articles are selected from series articles, advisories, commentaries, case students and personal stories.

Criteria for award winning papers:

  • Original topic, with significant potential impact on the project management profession, including standards and bodies of knowledge; and/or
  • Significant potential impact on the management of programs, projects and organizations; and/or
  • Significant potential positive impact on society itself

Criteria for award winning articles:

  • Original, stimulating and (maybe) entertaining; and/or
  • Of significant potential (and practical) usefulness to practicing project management professionals and organizations

Winning authors receive a certificate, recognition and free lifetime membership in the PM World Library at www.pmworldlibrary.net.


2017 Editor’s Choice Award Winners



Student Paper Award

A new student paper award is planned for 2018, with winners to be announced in December.  Because we are now publishing many student papers in the PM World Journal, we anticipate selecting five student authors for the inaugural award, based on the following criteria:

  • Topic must be directly related to project, program or portfolio management (PPPM);
  • Paper should be about an original or innovative aspect of PPPM, that might prove useful for planning or managing a project or program;
  • Paper must be the result of serious research with full references;
  • Paper must have been performed for project management degree, course or workshop;
  • Authorship of the paper must be confirmed by a professor or the teacher of the course for which the paper was produced.

If you are a student of project management at an accredited university or school and have prepared a research paper evaluated as good or excellent by the responsible teacher, consider submitting your paper for publication in the PM World Journal.

Winners of the PMWJ Student Paper Award will receive a certificate, recognition and free lifetime membership in the PM World Library.
