Call for Papers Deadline:
Call for Papers 2010
Please consider submitting your thesis/dissertation for the JM prize; the deadline is 15 January 2010.
Since 1985 the Jacques May Thesis Prize has been awarded by the Medical Geography Specialty Group (MGSG) of the Association of American Geographers, to recognize the best Master's and doctoral theses addressing themes in medical geography, broadly defined, as judged by a panel of readers. Theses will be judged on their contribution to the field, their methodological approach, organization, and written composition. Ph.D. dissertation winners receive an official certificate and a cash award of $300, and Master's thesis winners receive a certificate and a cash award of $200.
Theses officially completed in the 24 months prior to the submission deadline are eligible, provided that they have not been previously considered for the Prize.
Submission and review
Please submit theses to the prize coordinator electronically. Only electronic submissions will be considered. Theses must be in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format, and completely anonymous to enable double-blind reviews (i.e., the thesis must be free of all references to the author in the front matter, notes, references, headers, etc.). Theses will be reviewed by at least two anonymous referees, who will make their recommendations to the MGSG board. The MGSG will announce the winner of the prize before the AAG Meeting in Washington DC in April 2010.
Submission deadline: January 15, 2010
Thesis/dissertation submissions and other inquiries may be sent to the prize coordinator, Laura Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org . In the email message accompanying the submission, please include the following information: full name, address, telephone and fax numbers, email address, department and university affiliation, name of thesis advisor, title of the thesis, and a brief abstract.
