Anyone is allowed to nominate or self-nominate a scholarly work for consideration by sending an email to the CSES project (firstname.lastname@example.org) naming the scholarly work and providing a justification for its consideration.
All persons are eligible to receive the award, except for the three persons that serve on the Selection Committee for the year. The current year’s Selection Committee is comprised of: Jill Sheppard of The Australian National University (Selection Committee Chair), Christina Eder of the GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in Germany, and Eelco Harteveld of the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
Nominations will be accepted until April 30, 2021. The announcement of the award winner is anticipated to be made sometime in June of 2021.
The award winner will receive a 1,000 Euros prize and be asked to present their winning work as a CSES Blog entry and as part of a virtual event in late 2021.
