Introducing JAEC best cited paper award, we are offering an alternative to journal award committee for selecting 'the best paper'.

We hope that the design of this annual best-cited paper award will assure fairness and equal opportunity for all authors publishing their articles in JAEC. We hope that this award will stimulate the best minds to release their best work.
Purpose of the Award

The prize items for each best-cited paper include a certificate presented to the corresponding author and 1,000 USD (after tax) to be transferred to the corresponding author's bank account.
