THE 2011 JIBS DECADE AWARD 

The Selection Committee for the JIBS Decade Award is pleased to announce
that the article "Cultural distance revisited: Towards a more rigorous
conceptualization and measurement of cultural differences" by Oded Shenkar
(Ohio State University) has been selected as the winner of the 2011 JIBS
Decade Award.   

The award, sponsored by Palgrave Macmillan, is designed to recognize the
most influential paper published in the Journal of International Business
Studies ten years prior and is presented at the annual AIB conference. In
order to be considered for the JIBS Decade Award, an article must be one of
the five most cited articles published in JIBS for the year being
considered.  

This year's Selection Committee members were Sri Zaheer (Chair, selected by
the JIBS Editor-in-Chief), the current AIB Program Chair Shige Makino, and
the previous AIB Program Chair Tatiana Kostova. JIBS Editor-in-Chief John
Cantwell was an ex officio, non-voting committee member. The Selection
Committee examined total citations, total number of journals citing the
paper, and total number of leading journals (excluding JIBS) citing the
paper to determine the top five  most cited articles. The Committee read and
discussed the top five nominees and then voted on the winning article. 

In recommending the award-winning article, the Committee noted that: "Oded
Shenkar's paper had the courage to systematically debunk one of the most
sacred cows in the international business literature—the notion of a unified
measurable index of cross-country cultural distance, based on decomposing
culture into certain characteristics, grounded on Hofstede's original
contribution.  Oded's work remains timely, fresh, pushes us to think harder
about culture and its effects, is grippingly well-written and is focused on
what is still an under-developed and underexplored area, as legions of
strategy scholars seek an easy way out to deal with culture, without really
thinking about it.  This article still remains highly relevant even 10 years
after its publication, and many of the ideas it proposed have not yet been
fully developed and will continue to motivate future research in
international business."

A session will be held at the upcoming 2011 AIB Annual Meeting in Nagoya,
Japan, in which Prof. Shenkar and two invited discussants, Jane Salk
(University of Texas at Dallas; a 2006 Decade Award winner) and Srilata
Zaheer (University of Minnesota; 2011 committee chair and former JIBS
Reviewing Editor), will comment on the paper. A reception honoring the
Decade Award winning paper and its authors will also be held as part of the
closing reception at the conference. We hope that you will join us in Nagoya
to attend these events; the date and times will be available at
http://aib.msu.edu/events/2011/ when the conference program is finalized.

A reprint of the award winning article, together with the author's
commentary, will be published in the first issue of the 2012 volume of the
Journal of International Business Studies.
