Dr James M. Crick and Professor David Crick (from the University of Ottawa) have received the 2020 Outstanding Article Award from Industrial Marketing Management (ABS: 3; ABDC: A*; IF: 4.695). Since its publication in the summer of 2020, this paper quickly rose to the most downloaded article in this journal (20,706 times), with numerous citations from other scholars in the field. This award was for papers published between 2016 and 2020.

The study examines coopetition (collaboration among competitors) and how small and large enterprises from around the world have been cooperating with their rivals to withstand the challenges of the novel Coronavirus. James and David are honoured by this prestigious award and express their gratitude to the committee at Industrial Marketing Management for their support in the review process.
