CALL: Quality of Government Institute's (QoG) Best Paper Award

News: Aug 23, 2018

The Quality of Government Institute (QoG) at the University of Gothenburg announces the best paper award for a paper on a QoG-related topic published as an article, book chapter, a working paper in a university, or an otherwise recognizable working paper series in 2017/18, or presented at an academic international conference in 2017/18.

The QoG research agenda focuses on impartiality in the exercise of public power. The norm of impartiality is threatened when corruption, clientelism, favoritism, discrimination, patronage, nepotism or undue support to special interest groups occurs. We invite nominations of papers that research any of these topics.

To be eligible, the author(s) must be enrolled in a PhD program or hold a higher academic rank (postdocs, assistant through full professors). Submissions are limited to one paper per author. Papers can be self-nominated or nominated by others. Nominations should provide a one page motivation for recommending the paper.

Papers will be reviewed by a panel of referees from the QoG Institute, and the award will be presented to the author(s) of a paper that demonstrates outstanding research based on its theoretical and empirical contributions. 

Award: 400 Euros and a visit to the QoG Institute for a week as a guest scholar to present the paper or related research (travel to and accommodation in Gothenburg are covered).

The submission must:

• not exceed 12,000 words (exclusive of references and appendices);
• Times New Roman font, font size 12, and formatted according to a standard citation style, we accept all formats (PDF, .doc, .docx etc)
• contain tables, graphs, images, etc. within the body of the paper;
• be anonymized (author(s) name(s) should not appear anywhere in the main text);
• have a separate cover page with title, author name(s), institutional a¬ffiliation(s),
and an abstract of up 250 words
• be emailed to tove.wikehult@gu.se
• be submitted no later than October 15th, 2018.

If you have any questions, please contact us at tove.wikehult@gu.se.
