The EHA Committee on Research Archives and Databases invites nominations for the Engerman-Goldin Prize for creating, compiling, and sharing data and information with scholars. It is awarded in even numbered years (beginning in 2018) for contributions made in the previous six years.
The Committee’s criteria for determining the recipient are as follows:
– The prize may be awarded to an individual or up to five individuals, but not an organization. It can be awarded to an individual outstanding contributor in a group effort, but the size of the group will be considered when comparing candidates.
– Candidates should be in their early or mid-career and thus should not be in consideration for or have previously won the Gallman-Parker Prize, which celebrates lifetime data contributions.
– All else equal, the prize will be awarded for data contributions that have broader potential for researchers across locations, time periods, and fields.
– The recipient must still be living at the time of the vote.
Nominations along with a brief (2- to 3-page) description of the data set, its significance, and its dissemination should be sent to Zach Ward at Zachary_Ward@baylor.edu , with “Engerman-Goldin Prize Nomination” in the subject line.
DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: February 29, 2024
