Résumé :

The History of European Integration Research Society is proud to launch its first Essay Prize Competition. HEIRS's First Essay Prize Competition: "European integration history and any aspect of the Cold War".

Détails :

All manuscripts must be written in English or in French. While under consideration for the HEIRS Essay Prize, papers should not be under consideration for any other publication. If another version of the article is under consideration by another publication, or has been, or will be published elsewhere, authors should clearly indicate this at the time of submission.

This year we especially encourage contributions that tie European integration history to any aspect of the Cold War broadly defined.

The winning essay will be submitted for publication in the journal Cold War History, published by the Taylor&Francis Group and housed by the LSE Cold War Studies Centre. Contacts with the journal have already made and the winning paper will be published after having gone through the peer-review procedure.

Papers will be short-listed by the HEIRS Committee and the best four papers will be forwarded to a panel of high-profile historians who will decide which one will be awarded the Prize. For his year's competition the judges are: Prof. Gérard Bossuat (Université de Cergy-Pontoise), Prof. Robert Gildea (University of Oxford), Dr Piers Ludlow (London School of Economics) and Prof. Wolfgang Schmale (Universität Wien).

The deadline for submission is Friday, 31 March 2006. Manuscripts should be submitted in rich text format (RTF) as an email attachment to HEIRSessayprize@gmail.com. The result will be announced on Monday, 15 May 2006 and publication will take place in due course.

Format and style

Manuscripts should be between 7,000 and 10,000 words (including endnotes and references). The article should begin with an abstract of around 100 words, which should describe the main arguments and conclusions.

To facilitate the typesetting process, notes should be grouped together at the end of the file. A short biographical note of around 50 words (including the author's institutional affiliation and current and forthcoming projects) should be submitted in a separate file. In addition, full contact details (including postal address), any acknowledgements, and a note of the exact length of the article should be included in that file.

It will be the authors' responsibility to ensure that where copyright materials are included within an article the permission of the copyright holder has been obtained. Confirmation of this should be included with the submission.
