Aida Tomeh Distinguished Service Award

NCSA Scholarly Achievement Award

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

The Scholarly Achievement Award Committee is now encouraging nominations for significant work in the discipline which has appeared in the recent past (January 2016 through September 2018) that previously has not been recognized by the Association. There are two divisions of the award: scholarly paper and scholarly book. Both divisions should be submitted to the chair of the committee via the button below. Self nominations are welcome, but at least one of the authors of the work must either be an NCSA member or located within the North Central Region (Eastern Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, or Ontario, Canada).

The committee evaluates the nominated books/articles using the following criterion:

-use, development, extension, or reworking of theory;

-appropriateness and strength of methods/research design;

-clarity, quality, and accessibility of writing;

-overall contribution to and impact on the discipline of sociology — be it through use in the classroom, as a research piece, or both — including its timeliness and significance.

Given these criteria, with regards to books, there is a clear preference for research/teaching monographs, rather than dissertations, textbooks, edited volumes or encyclopedias.


THE DEADLINE FOR 2019 NOMINATIONS IS OCTOBER 20, 2018
