To encourage and support early-career scholars seeking to publish in leading academic journals, Brill is awarding an annual prize for an outstanding article in the field of Middle East and Islamic Studies. Brill’s Middle East and Islamic Studies Early-Career Paper Prize is made possible by the Sheikh Zayed Book Award for publishing.
The author of the winning article will receive a €750,- cash prize and the article will be published in one of Brill’s leading journals.
The Paper Prize is open to students who are currently registered for doctoral research at a higher education institution, or have obtained their doctoral degree no longer than 3 years before the submission deadline. Any eligible article should be full-length and an original contribution to the field of Islamic and/or Middle East Studies. Each year the competition will be hosted by one of Brill’s journals.
In 2015 the Paper Prize will be hosted by the Middle East Journal of Culture and Communication.
Articles should be submitted in PDF and Word format, together with a short CV. All submissions must comply with the journal style sheet, which can be found in the Author Instructions of the journal, and at brill.com/mjcc.
