Luke Foster JCER Best Article Prize

UACES and JCER are delighted to announce the launch of the Luke Foster JCER Best Article Prize - dedicated to the memory of our late Executive Director. The prize will reward the best article written by a PhD student or an academic within 5 years of completing their PhD. 

The article must have been published in the 2016 volume of JCER (Vol. 12).

The prize will be judged via a poll of JCER readers and UACES members. There is a £500 prize for the best article and two further prizes of £250 for the two runners up.

The prize is being generously supported by the James Madison Charitable Trust.

The criteria for the prize are as follows:

  • The article must come from the peer-reviewed section of JCER
  • The article must have been published in Volume 12 of JCER (2016)
  • The article must have been written by a PhD student or early-career researcher (defined as those who completed their PhD no earlier than 1 January 2011)
  • Where articles are multi-authored, they will be considered for the prize if at least one of the authors meets the above criteria

In order to vote for your favourite visit www.uaces.org/jcerbestarticle.

Voting closes on 31 March 2017.

As an added incentive, everyone who votes will be entered into a draw to win a year’s membership of UACES, courtesy of the James Madison Charitable Trust. The membership will run from 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2018. One free membership is up for grabs.
