Postgraduate Essay Prize
For the fifteenth year running, Res Publica will be awarding a prize for the best paper submitted by a current or recent postgraduate student in 2019. This may be in any area of moral, legal, social or political philosophy. Entries should conform to the normal requirements for submissions - please see www.springer.com/11158 for details.
We invite entries from both current postgraduate students and those who were awarded their PhD (i.e., passed their viva) no earlier than 1 May 2019 (the prize winner may be asked to provide proof of their current or recent postgraduate status).
All entries must be received by 2 January 2020. The winner will receive £100 and a one-year subscription to the journal. The winning essay will be published in the third or fourth issue of Volume 26 (2020).
The prize will be judged by two referees, along with the journal editors.
Entries should be submitted via the journal's submission website and labelled 'PG Essay Prize'
