FHHS/JHBS John C. Burnham Early Career Award

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and the Journal of the History of the Behavioral Science (JHBS) encourage researchers in their early careers to submit unpublished manuscripts for the annual John C. Burnham Early Career Award, named in honor of this prominent historian of the human sciences and past-editor of JHBS.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 author of the paper will recieve an honorarium of US $500.

Guidelines for the award: Unpublished manuscripts in English dealing with any aspect of the history of the human sciences.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. The winning article can then be submitted to JHBS with FHHS endorsement and will undergo the regular review process and is typically accepted. When the article is accepted for publication, the publisher of JHBS will issue a US $500 honorarium. Submissions will be due on May 15, 2019. Please submit a PDF to eherman@uoregon.edu

FHHS Article Prize

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 meeting.

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. Articles must be published at the time of submission. Submissions will be due on May 15, 2019. Please submit a PDF to eherman@uoregon.edu
