Basis for Judging
Quality, originality, utility, timeliness, clarity of presentation.

Nominee Solicitation
Nominations solicited by Transactions Editor-in-Chief from the Editorial Board, guest Editors, and readership (through published notice).

Selection Process
Nominations screened and reduced to a short list by a committee of the Editorial Board and submitted to the Communications Society Awards Committee for final selection.
