Paper Competition: American Society of Criminology


Sponsored by McGraw-Hill

Any student currently enrolled on a full-time basis in an academic program at either the undergraduate or graduate level is invited to participate in the American Society of Criminology Gene Carte Student Paper Competition. These awards are given to recognize outstanding scholarly work of students. Persons who are previous first place prize winners of this competition are ineligible.

The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place papers will be awarded prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively, and will be eligible for presentation at the ASC Annual Meeting. The 1st prize winner will also receive a travel award of up to $500 to help defray costs for attending the Annual Meeting.

Paper Specifications: Papers may be conceptual and/or empirical but must be directly related to criminology. The paper can be submitted to only one ASC student competition in the same year. Papers that previously won any prize in any ASC competition are ineligible for submission to another ASC competition.

Papers must be typewritten, double-spaced on 8-1/2 x 11 white paper, and no longer than 7,500 words. The CRIMINOLOGY format for the organization of text, citations and references should be used. The authors' names, departments and advisors (optional) must appear ONLY on the title page, since papers will be evaluated anonymously. The next page of the manuscript should include the title and a 100-word abstract.

The author must submit EIGHT copies of the manuscript, accompanied by a letter indicating the author's enrollment status and co-signed by the dean, department chair or program director. Submissions should be sent to:

Eric Baumer
College of Criminology and Criminal Justice
Florida State University
634 W. Call St.
Tallahassee, FL 32306
(850) 645-2305

Deadline: Papers must be postmarked on or before April 15, 2010.

Procedures for Judging Entries: Papers will be reviewed and rated by members of the Student Awards Committee according to criteria such as the quality of the conceptualization, significance of the topic, clarity and aptness of methods, quality of the writing, command of relevant work in the field, and contribution to criminology. The Committee may decide that no entry is of sufficient quality to declare a winner. Fewer than three awards may be given. The Committee's award determination will be final.
