Call for Nominations: Oran R. Young Prize

The Earth System Governance Project is calling for nominations for the Oran R. Young Prize.

The Oran R. Young Prize will be awarded for the third time at the 2015 Canberra Conference on Earth System Governance. The Prize awarded by the Earth System Governance Project seeks to reward and encourage cutting-edge research on earth system governance by early-career scholars who could become the next generation of leading scholars in the field of environmental governance research – a field shaped and significantly influenced by the pioneering work of Prof. Oran R. Young.

The Oran R. Young Prize will be awarded for the best paper presented at the annual Earth System Governance Open Science Conference authored by early-career scholars. The Prize Committee is chaired by Earth System Governance Steering Group member Michele Betsill (Colorado State University). The committee will select the winning paper based on academic quality and novelty as well as relevance to the Earth System Governance Research Framework.

The eligibility criteria for papers to be nominated for the Prize are as follows:

– The paper must be accepted for presentation at the Canberra Conference on Earth System Governance;

-The paper must be submitted in its review-ready version by noon GMT on 14 November 2015 to ipo@earthsystemgovernance.org (only papers sent to this address will be considered);

– The paper must be authored by one or more early-career researchers, or by an early-career researcher as first author whereby early-career is defined as Master student, PhD-student or Post-doctoral researcher with less than 5 years post PhD;

– Papers (co-)authored by members of the Oran R. Young Prize Committee, and by staff of the International Project Office are not eligible.
