Every year, Philosophy & Technology offers up to two prizes, worth € 500 each (€ 250 in cash and € 250 in books published by Springer), awarded to the authors of unpublished research papers that make an outstanding contribution to the field of philosophy and technology broadly conceived. The winning papers are published in Philosophy & Technology. All shortlisted authors are invited to submit their papers for publication in the journal.
The papers are judged in November each year, using the criteria of clarity of presentation, novelty of contents, and potential impact.
All nominations received are assessed by the Editorial Board.
Nominations must be submitted by email to the editorial assistant, Mrs Penny Driscoll (email@example.com). Each nomination must include the paper (formatted according to the standards of the journal), one letter of support explaining (in no more than 1000 words) how it meets the criteria listed above, and a brief cv of the author(s). Please indicate in the subject of the email: “Submission for Philosophy & Technology Best Paper Prize”.
Authors are welcome to nominate their own papers.
Submissions for Best Paper Prizes are always welcome. The 1st of November is the closing date for each year competition.
For further information, please contact the editorial assistant, Penny Driscoll (firstname.lastname@example.org).
