WE WANT YOUR SURVEY ESSAYS FOR THE HISTORY COMPASS JOURNAL GRADUATE ESSAY PRIZE! Prize Date: 2006-10-16 Date Submitted: 2006-08-08 Submissions are invited for the 2006 History Compass Journal Graduate Essay Prize! History Compass is an online history journal which publishes original, peer-reviewed, survey articles in all periods, across all continents, covering the entire discipline. Experienced researchers, teaching faculty, and advanced students will all benefit from the accessible, informative articles that provide overviews of current research. Entries for the 2006 Graduate Essay Prize should contain a strong survey element which ensures the essay remains accessible to the non- specialist. The incorporation of advanced graduate work is strongly encouraged. There will be a prize awarded for each of the 9 sections on History Compass: Africa Asia Australasia/Pacific Britain/Ireland Caribbean/Latin America Europe Middle/Near East North America World Who can apply? The prize is open to all graduate students engaged in study at a college or university after their first degree and having not yet completed their doctorate. What do I win? Each section winner will receive $200/£100 of free Blackwell books and have their article published on History Compass (www.history- compass.com <http://www.history-compass.com/> ). Can I choose my own topic? Those entering can choose their own topic; however, as with Compass articles already published on History Compass, submitted essays should have a strong survey element, putting the chosen topic in context for the non-specialist. Is there a word limit? The upper word limit is 5000 words, including endnotes and bibliography. What is the deadline? October 16, 2006. Where should I send my article? Essays should be submitted by email as a Word document to Associate Managing Editor Keren Oertly at: HICOeditorial@oxon.blackwellpublishing.com. Graduates must specify: - which section they are entering their essay for - give details of their affiliation - provide their supervisor's name and email address How is my essay reviewed? The Review Panel for each section will comprise the relevant Editor (s) and three Editorial Board members. All submissions will be read 'blind'. When will the winners be announced? The winners will be announced at the 2007 AHA Conference. Contact: Keren M. Oertly Associate Managing Editor History Compass Journal Blackwell Publishing Ltd 9600 Garsington Road Oxford OX4 2DQ, UK
