TWO FHHS PRIZE ANNOUNCEMENTS : 30 June 2017 deadline
1. FHHS/JHBS John C. Burnham Early Career Award: Send manuscript and
curriculum vitae (PDF format) by June 30, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Forum for History of Human Science (FHHS) and the Journal of the History
of the Behavioral Science (JHBS) encourage researchers in their early careers
to submit unpublished manuscripts for the annual John C. Burnham Early Career
Award, named in honor of this prominent historian of the human sciences and
past-editor of JHBS. The publisher provides the author of the paper an
honorarium of US $500. (see details below).
Guidelines for the award: Unpublished manuscripts in English dealing with any
aspect of the history of the human sciences. The paper should meet the
publishing guidelines of the JHBS. Eligible scholars are those who do not
hold tenured university positions (or equivalent) and are not more than seven
years beyond the Ph.D. Graduate students and independent scholars are
encouraged to submit. Manuscripts may be re-submitted for the prize, as long
as they have not been published or submitted to another journal and the
submitting scholar is still in early career. The manuscript cannot be
submitted to any other journal and still qualify for this award. Past winners
are not eligible to submit again.
The winning submission will be announced at the annual History of Science
Society meeting. (If there are no submissions of suitable quality in any
given year, no award will be given for that year.) The winning article can
then be submitted to JHBS with FHHS endorsement and will undergo the regular
review process. When the article is accepted for publication, the publisher
of JHBS will announce the award and issue a US $500 honorarium. Although it
is technically possible that someone might win the Burnham Early Career Award
and not receive the honorarium, FHHS and JHBS do not expect this to happen
under normal circumstances.
2. FHHS Article Prize. Send the article (PDF format) by June 30, 2017 to
The Forum for History of Human Science awards a biennial prize (a nonmonetary
honor) for the best article published recently on some aspect of the history
of the human sciences. The article prize is awarded in odd-numbered years.
The winner of the prize is announced at the annual History of Science Society
Entries are encouraged from authors in any discipline, as long as the work is
related to the history of the human sciences, broadly construed, and is in
English. To be eligible, the article must have been published within the
three years previous to the year of the award. Preference will be given to
authors who have not won the award previously.
