The academy of accounting historians 2009 Vangermeersch Manuscript Award
In 1988, The Academy of Accounting Historians established an annual manuscript award to encourage scholars new to the field to pursue historical research. A historical manuscript on any aspect of the field of accounting, broadly defined, is appropriate for submission.
Eligibility and guidelines for submissions
Any accounting faculty member, who holds a full-time appointment and who received his/her Master’s/doctorate within seven years prior to the date of submission, is eligible to be considered for this award. Co-authored manuscripts will be considered (if at least one co-author received his/her Master’s/doctorate within the last seven years). Manuscripts must conform with the style requirements of the Accounting Historians Journal. Previously published manuscripts or manuscripts under review are not eligible for consideration.
Each manuscript should be submitted by June 8, 2009 in a word file as an e-mail attachment to the Chair of the Vangermeersch Manuscript Award Committee, Professor Lee Parker (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A covering letter, indicating the author’s mailing address, the date of the award of the Master’s/doctoral degree, and a statement that the manuscript has not been published or is not currently being considered for publication should be included in the submission packet.
Review process and award
The Vangermeersch Manuscript Award Committee will evaluate submitted manuscripts on a blind-review basis and select one recipient each year. The author will receive a US$1,000 stipend and a plaque to recognize his/her outstanding achievement in historical research. In the case of co-authored manuscripts, only the junior faculty member(s) will receive prizes. The winning manuscript will be published in the Accounting Historians Journal after an appropriate review. The award will be given annually unless the Manuscript Award Committee determines that no submission warrants recognition as an outstanding manuscript.
