Best Annual JOHS Paper Award
The basic requirement for eligibility for the Best Journal of Happiness Studies Paper Award is selection of the best paper in the last year of JOHS. This process is determined by requesting that the JOHS Editor-in-Chief (in consultation with JOHS Editorial Review Board) nominate one potential paper for the award. The nomination has to be approved by a simple majority vote of the Board of Directors (with at least 25% of the Directors voting).
