S. Tamer Cavusgil Award

S. Tamer Cavusgil Award

Each year, the Editorial Board of Journal of International Marketing honors the article published in the calendar year that has the most significant contribution to the advancement and practice of international marketing management.


The S. Tamer Cavusgil Award recognizes the Journal of International Marketing article published in the calendar year that has made the most significant contribution to the advancement of the practice of international marketing management.


The award is named in honor of Professor S. Tamer Cavusgil, Fuller E. Callaway Professorial Chair and Executive Director of the Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) at Georgia State University. Professor Cavusgil specializes in international marketing strategy, early internationalization, and emerging markets. He is the author of several books and more than 170 refereed articles. Cavusgil served as the inaugural Editor in Chief of the Journal of International Marketing, published by the American Marketing Association.


The Journal of International Marketing editor assembles a three-person review committee, which includes the editor.

  • The editorial review board of the journal submits nominations from the four journals published within the calendar year
  • The editorial office reviews the nominations from the editorial review board and sends the complete list to the three-person committee for final review and selection.
  • The committee evaluations articles in relation to their impact on the field (e.g., number of citations, breadth of citations, contributions to the literature) and overall quality.

Recognition and Benefits

The award will be presented at the upcoming Summer AMA Academic Conference with a cash award and a special plaque.
