Aida Tomeh Distinguished Service Award

NCSA Scholarly Achievement Award

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

The Scholarly Achievement Award Committee solicits nominations for significant work in the discipline which has appeared in the recent past (2015-2017) and has not been recognized by the Association. There are two types of awards: scholarly paper and scholarly book. Both types can be submitted to the chair of the committee. 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, and 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 2018 NOMINATIONS IS OCTOBER 20, 2017
