Robert I. Mehr Award

The editor(s) of the Journal of Risk and Insurance chair this committee. The Robert I. Mehr Award is presented by the American Risk and Insurance Association each year for the paper published in the JRI ten years ago that has best stood the test of time. The procedure for identifying the winning article is as follows: The articles published in the Journal of Risk and Insurance (JRI) ten years previously are compiled, and the titles, abstracts and social science citation index numbers are sent to the associate editors of the JRI. The associate editors vote on the article that they believe best satisfied the criteria. The deadline for award recommendation is May 15. The recommendation is subject to ARIA Board approval and will be upon approval by the Board. The winner(s) receive an award certificate at the ARIA annual meeting.
