Misumi Award

Misumi Award History

Misumi Award is established jointly by the Japanese Group Dynamics Association and the Asian Association for Social Psychology in honor of Professor Jyuji Misumi, a long time president of JGDA who made great contributions to the development of social psychology in Asia.

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.

The selection committee consists of five members. Three are recommended by the Japanese Group Dynamics Association, and two by the Asian Association for Social Psychology.

Misumi Award Grant

The Award is granted each year. The ceremony for granting the Award and the prize of $1,000 takes place at the Conference of the Asian Association of Social Psychology.

One paper is selected for the Misumi Award each year from the papers published in the previous year's volume of the Asian Journal of Social Psychology. The selection procedure is:

  1. Each committee member nominates up to two papers as candidates for the Award. The commitee member cannot nominate or vote for any paper writen by him/her self or his/her direct students, or whose senior author has already received the Misumi Award.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. The committee discusses the shortlisted papers and each member ranks the final candidates. The paper that receives the highest average score on the final vote is selected for the Award

How to apply for the Misumi Award

All papers published in the Asian Journal of Social Psychology are eligible for the Misumi Award.
