Call for Nominations: CIES East Asia SIG Awards
Nominations are due December 15, 2020
The CIES East Asia SIG is pleased to announce two new awards that will begin this year – the Best Paper Award and the Best Graduate Student Paper Award. The purpose of these awards is to recognize, support, and advance outstanding research on East Asian education. While authors do not have to be East Asia SIG members at the time of submission, if awarded, they should register as members by the time of the East Asia SIG business meeting of the CIES 2021
Annual Conference, where winners will be recognized.
Please send all submissions and inquiries to: Yoonjeon Kim, Chair East Asia SIG Awards Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15th, 2020. In the email subject line, please identify the submission/inquiry and the particular award.
Submissions for the 2021 best paper award should be a journal article or contributed chapter published in 2019 or 2020 on any topic related to East Asian education. The paper can be published as “online first” or in print but may be considered for the award only once. A pdf version of the published paper should be accompanied with a short letter (max 2 pages) highlighting the relevance and importance of the paper in relation to East Asian education, broadly defined. Self-submission is welcome.
Best Graduate Student Paper
Submissions for the best graduate student paper can be either a recently published (2019 or 2020) or unpublished (e.g., presented at a conference, under review for publication) paper on any topic related to East Asian education written by a graduate student at the time of submission. The paper can be solo-authored or co-authored as long as the first author is a graduate student at the time of submission. Unpublished papers should not exceed 10,000 words, including the abstract, endnotes, and references. A pdf version of the paper should be accompanied with a short letter (max 2 pages) highlighting the relevance and importance of the paper in relation to East Asian education, broadly defined. Self-submission is welcome. The graduate student winner will receive a $200 stipend to offset travel costs to attend the CIES 2021 Annual Conference.
