Nominate an Article for BSA Climate Change Study Group Prize by 20 November 2015

Climate Change Study Group

Article Prize

Nominate by 12pm 20th November 2015

What is the best (broadly) sociological article you have read – or
written! - on climate change? Why not nominate it for the British
Sociological Association's Climate Change Study Group's Article Prize?

The prize will be awarded to the best article - as selected by a
panel of judges - addressing any aspect of the sociology of climate
change that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal in the last
year (since November 2014). Prize winners will be invited to present
and discuss their work at a celebratory event in spring 2016.

The winning article will receive £50 in book vouchers (with the
second article winning £25 and the third winning £25). To nominate an
article, simply email the article title and abstract together with a
short (max 150 words) statement of why you think your chosen article
deserves to win the prize to Pennie Drinkall by 12.00pm on Friday 20th November 2015.

The judges will draw up a shortlist based on the abstract and
nomination. Shortlisted authors will be asked to send in the full
article. Prize winning articles will be selected from this shortlist
and winners will be announced in January 2016. The judging panel is
comprised of last year's winners: Prof. Martin Phillips, University
of Leicester; Dr Ritsuko Ozaki, Imperial College London; Dr Warren
Pearce, University of Nottingham.


· The nominated article must have been published in a
peer-reviewed journal between November 2014 and October 2015.

· Nominations for sole and joint authored articles are
welcome (if they win, joint authors will have to share the prize).

· The paper can be published in any journal, as long as the
article's contribution to climate change sociology (broadly defined)
is clear.

· Entry is open to all: nominated authors do not need to be
members of the BSA.

We're looking forward to receiving your nominations!
