Misumi Award History

The award is given to the author(s) of the article in the Asian Journal of Social Psychology of which contribution to the development of social psychology in Asia is most prominent.

- A list of nominated papers is distributed to the committee members. Each committee member evaluates each paper in the list on a five point scale (five being the highest score). Members do not evaluate papers where they may have a conflict of interest.
- The Japanese Group Dynamics Association distributes a list of average scores of the nominated papers (without the authors' names and the titles) to the members.
- The committee decides how many papers (up to a maximum of 3) to select as the final candidates of the Award, based on the average scores.
