Academics and Practitioners were invited to submit papers by 18 November 2022 for consideration. All submissions related to corporate governance were welcomed. Two of the papers selected will each receive the 2023 John L. Weinberg/IRRCi Research Paper Award and a $10,000 prize. Details of past year's programme and award winners are available here.

This research competition is the successor to the IRRCi Investor Research Paper Award, a prominent award garnering significant attention amongst the investment community, academia and policymakers. The John L. Weinberg/IRRCi Research Paper Award, as its predecessor did, highlights innovative research.
