Starting in 2007, an award is given each year to the best article published in SGR. The winner of the award is determined by the editorial team through a process that involves first identifying a small set of finalists, then discussing the special merits of their articles, and finally selecting a winner.
The winner of the 2016-2017 SGR Best Article of the Year Award was presented at the 2017 Annual Conference of the Interdisciplinary Network for Group Research to:
Hannes Guenter, Hetty van Emmerik, Bert Schreurs, Tom Kuypers, Ad van Iterson, and Guy Notelaers
