Brill supports early-career scholars with the new Middle East and Islamic Studies Early-Career Paper Prize.
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 after 1 January 2011. Any eligible article should be full-length (8.000-12.000 words) 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. Die Welt des Islams has kindly agreed to host the 2014 competition. Submissions should thus fit the scope of that journal.
