ISCHE Early Career Conference Paper Award

ISCHE Early Career Conference Paper Award


The ISCHE Early Career Conference Paper Award is given for the best paper presented at the previous ISCHE conference by an Early Career Researcher. This award was previously known as the “ISCHE Prize” and was renamed in June 2015.

The ISCHE Early Career Conference Paper Award committee consists of four members who are jointly appointed by the chief local congress organizer, the President of ISCHE and the editor-in-chief of Paedagogica Historica.  In evaluating submissions for the ISCHE Early Career Conference Paper Award the committee takes into consideration the quality of the work, innovation in sources and methods used, contribution to the annual conference theme and overall contribution to the field. Information about how to submit a paper for the award is announced at each ISCHE conference.

The ISCHE Early Career Conference Paper Award may be published in the conference special issue of Paedagogica Historica or in a general issue with acknowledgement to ISCHE conference.


To submit the paper you presented at ISCHE 39 in Buenos Aires, please send it to no later than Oct. 1, 2017.
