In the past ten years, Evidence & Policy has built a reputation as a leading journal in the field of evidence use in policy and practice. In 2012 the Journal achieved an ISI Impact Factor at its first submission. To mark the tenth anniversary, the Journal is launching a new annual prize. The prize will offer an opportunity to recognize and reward the successes of outstanding early career contributors to the journal. The prize has been created in memory of Professor Carol Weiss, the first North American Editor of Evidence & Policy and a pioneer in the field.
Each year a prize of £100 worth of Policy Press books will be awarded to the winner. The paper will be published in the journal if it isn’t already, and will be made freely available for a period of 3 months and promoted widely.
There will be one winner each year commencing in 2016. The winner will be asked to participate in some promotional activities for the publisher, Policy Press. The journal also aims to also host a seminar at which the winner will present their research to an invited audience.
