Best Article in the History of Economics Prize
In 1995 the Society established an annual award for Best Article in the History of Economics during the previous publication year. Beside the honor, there is a stipend of $500 plus travel expenses up to $500 to attend the presentation at the Society's annual conference.
Eligibility: Any article in the history of economics or economic thought published in English in the calendar year preceding the next Annual Meeting of the Society is eligible (e.g. calendar year 2008 for Annual Meeting in June 2009). It is recognized however, that despite official publication dates, many publications are shipped after year end. In such cases, relevant articles that are in 'proof' form, with accompanying evidence of the journal and its year of publication, may be accepted at the discretion of the Chair of the committee.
The Committee considers all nominated articles as well as all articles published in the Society's journal: Journal for the History of Economic Thought. The committee may not ask editors of journals for their nominations as editors, but editors may nominate in a personal capacity. Nomination of an article by its author is welcome.
