Professor Jeremy Moon, VELUX Professor of Corporate Sustainability at MSC, has received the highly acclaimed Academy of Management Review (AMR) 'Paper of the Decade' award together with his co-author, Professor Dirk Matten, Associate Dean of Research at the Schulich School of Business, York University, Canada.


The award was presented by AMR Editor Jay Barney on 12 August, during the 2018 Academy of Management Annual Meeting.


Dirk Matten and Jeremy Moon received the AMR Decade Paper Award for having “demonstrated a significant impact in the field of management”

with the article, ‘“Implicit” and “Explicit” CSR: A Conceptual Framework for a Comparative Understanding of Corporate Social Responsibility’.


It is the AMR paper published at least 10 years ago with the most citations. According to Google Scholar, the article has been cited an astounding 3,504 times in books and articles across the world, since its publication in April 2008.  According to Scopus it was cited 1,195 times in a selection of journals.  The AMR journal is ranked #2 of 209 Management journals and #2 of 140 Business journals by Google Scholar.


Jeremy Moon suggests that the article, which takes its point of departure in an analysis of differences between European and US approaches to Corporate Social Responsibility, has been quoted so much because it

  1. enables analysis of CSR in a variety of national settings and explanation of different national approaches,
  2. enables analysis of dynamic features of CSR (e.g. reflecting institutional change, globalisation) and,
  3. in particular, enables understanding of why European and other non-US companies have adopted their own CSR strategies over the last decade or so.

The article can be accessed on the Academy of Management Review website: “Implicit” and “Explicit” CSR: A Conceptual Framework for a Comparative Understanding of Corporate Social Responsibility (with subscription), or in the Academy of Management Review, vol. 33, no. 2, pp. 404-424.
