Award Details:

The Early Career Publication Award recognizes an outstanding research publication by an individual within five years after completing the doctorate. The person nominated must be sole or first author of the article. The article must be a completed study published in a peer-refereed journal prior to the deadline. Online First (or similar) publications are eligible (e.g., article is accepted, final proofs are completed, revisions are not possible, and the article is posted in final form). Pre-prints and “in-press” papers will not be considered. The article must be a primary research report, a meta-analysis, or a research review. It may not be a chapter, theoretical paper, or position or issue article. Nominations are sought across all areas of Special Education as well as all forms of research methodology.

 

The committee will initially review all articles submitted and create a short list. Evaluations may be solicited from appropriate scholars in the field based on the topics investigated in the articles constituting the short list. Feedback from these scholars to the subcommittee will be considered and a final decision reached on the recipient(s). The Early Career Publication Award will be presented at the CEC-DR Reception during the Annual CEC Convention.
