Student Paper Award in Document(ation) Studies
Did you have an up-and-coming Briet in class this year? The Document Academy would like to promote and award student work engaging with document theory, analysis, and creation. In this new award from DOCAM, faculty can submit high quality student work that uses, applies, or addresses document theory in some way. Submissions can be in the areas of:
- Document Theory (general, conceptual, and theoretical research)
- Document Analysis (case studies, methodological issues, projects, history)
- Document Design, Structure, and Creation (creative and practical work)
Submissions must be:
- from the 2016/17 academic year
- from a higher education course (undergraduate & graduate levels)
And can be:
- from any academic institution in the world
- from any field
- in any form that is publishable (paper, presentation, song, creative work, etc)
- in any language
The paper (or other type of document) will be peer-reviewed by members of our Document Academy community and selected based on three criteria:
- quality and coherence
- engagement with document theory, analysis or design
Winners will be announced one month before the Annual Meeting of the Document Academy begins (this year, that is August 29, 2017). The winning paper will be published in that year’s meeting issue of the Proceedings of the Document Academy.
The Award will consist of $100 cash and some combination of non-cash awards, to be determined by the conference site, such as free registration to the Annual Meeting of the Document Academy.
Submission, course assignment description, and a short description of why you are submitting this entry, should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 26, 2017.
