Holmes Rolston III Early Career Essay Prize in Environmental Philosophy
The International Association for Environmental Ethics is issuing an essay prize open to its members who are scholars in an early stage of their career.
The prize is named in honor of Professor Holmes Rolston III, for his pioneering work in the field of environmental philosophy. Papers are invited on all aspects of environmental philosophy or environmental affairs (with a strong theoretical component).
A prize of $500 will be awarded to the winning essay. All submitted papers that qualify (see conditions) will be reviewed by an Essay Prize Committee of ISEE Officers in consultation with the Editorial Board of Environmental Ethics. The winning essay will be published in the journal Environmental Ethics.
Scholars who have earned their doctorate no more than five years prior to submission are invited to submit an essay. Submissions must be accompanied by a one-page CV to provide evidence of early career status. Only ISEE members are eligible for ISEE awards and prizes.
The word limit is 60,000 characters (including spaces), including notes and references. An abstract of 100-150 words should also be included. Essays must be prepared for blind review.
The essay should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere, and should not be submitted to any other journal until the outcome of the competition is announced.
