Wageningen School of Social Sciences is pleased to announce the call for the annual publication award 2015.

The Wageningen Social Sciences Publication Award aims at annually granting two awards: the ‘Best WASS publication’ and the ‘Most Promising WASS publication’.

Stimulating and rewarding good publications is important to WASS. This concerns both publications from longstanding fellows but also from researchers that have just begun their publication career. Therefore, two types of award will be granted: one main award for the best WASS publication of the year (5000 euro) and one that awards and stimulates young researchers for the most promising WASS publication of the year (1000 euro).

All fellows, postdocs and PhDs of WASS are invited to send in their best publication from 2014.

The criteria are:

  1. A journal article, research monograph or book chapter, published in 2014 in printed form (not DOI).
  2. The applicant should be first  (or single) author of the publication.
  3. The publication offers an important contribution to the scientific domain of the researcher (high ranking journal; excellent publishing house, high visibility and/or (scientific/societal) impact).
  4. The publication is innovative, creative and  original with regard to content and/or methodology.
  5. The publication offers a substantial and clear contribution to one of the four WASS themes
  6. The publication should be accompanied by the entry form containing an abstract of the publication and a description of the entry according to the criteria 1 to 4.

Entries can be sent to wass@wur.nl until Monday 11 May 2015, 9.00 AM (CET).

A jury, consisting of the Director of WASS, Alfons Oude Lansink, the former Director of WASS, Arthur Mol, and emeritus WASS professor Arie Oskam, will judge the entries. There can be no correspondence on the entries and decisions.

The awards will be presented during the end-of-term Leeuwenborch drinks, which usually take place late June.
