ASCoR McQuail Award for the best article advancing communication theory
The Amsterdam School of Communication Research ASCoR at the University of Amsterdam has established an award in honor of Denis McQuail. Previous winners include Professor Michael Slater and Dr. Matthew Baum. The call for nominations for the ASCoR Denis McQuail Award 2010 – for the best article advancing communication theory published in a peer-reviewed journal during 2010 – is now open.
- Must have been published (not ‘due to appear’) in 2010 in an English language peer-reviewed journal.
- May be purely theoretical or empirical and theoretical, but the focus should clearly be on theory development.
- Must focus on some aspect of communication. NB: Articles published in noncommunication journals are also eligible.
An international panel chaired by Professor Emeritus Denis McQuail, and consisting of Professor Pamela Shoemaker (Syracuse University), Professor Winfried Schulz (University of Erlangen-N�rnberg), and Professor Edith Smit (ASCoR, University of Amsterdam) will select the winning article from a list of nominated articles. The selection will be based on the quality of the article, not on the author(s)’ professional or personal credentials. The number of nominations for an article plays no role in the selection process: Each article that has been nominated at least once will be considered. Please note that the jury may decide not to give the Award if none of the nominations are considered to stand out.
The award will go to all listed authors of the article chosen. The award consists of a certificate, and an invitation to the 1st author to become the McQuail Honorary Fellow 2011-2012 at ASCoR, as well as to give a guest lecture in Amsterdam in Fall 2011.
