HES Annual award for Best Article in the History of Economics

Another reminder, together with a correction, resulting from a decision of the Executive Committee last June. The deadline remains January 31.

In 1995 the History of Economics Society established an annual award for Best Article in the History of Economics. Beside the honor, the winner receives a stipend of $500 plus travel expenses up to $500 to attend the Society’s annual conference and be presented the award in person.

The Society is now accepting nominations for this year’s competition. Any article on the history of economics published in English during 2016 is eligible. It is recognized however, that despite official publication dates, many publications are shipped after year end. In such cases, relevant articles that are in ‘proof’ form, with accompanying evidence of the journal and its year of publication, may be accepted at the discretion of the Chair of the committee.
The Committee considers all nominated articles as well as all articles published in the Society’s journal, Journal for the History of Economic Thought . Editors of HET journals are welcome to nominate two articles from each journal. Nomination of an article by its author is welcome.

The judging committee comprises Roger Backhouse, Harald Hagemann and Perry Mehrling. Nominations (brief reasons), including a complete citation of the article and/or a pdf of the article, should be sent to the Chair of the committee, Roger Backhouse, at hesprize (at) bhouse.org.uk no later than January 31, 2017 (earlier if possible).
