The director of the Office for Population Studies announces a student competition for the „Best GGS paper award“
This competition aims at symbolically and financially rewarding outstanding research and publication achievements, which are based on data from the „Generations and Gender Survey“ (GGS). Our department is a national coordinator of this unique, internationally harmonized large-scale panel study, which strongly contributes to global excellence in family sociology.
The competition is based on students’ self-nominations. Any student enrolled at FSS may nominate a published or unpublished research paper as long as the paper utilizes data from the Generations and Gender Survey. Nominations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 15, 2020. Nominations should be sent from university email accounts and should include the paper/manuscript. If a manuscript is nominated, a confirmation of submission from the editorial office of a professional sociology/demography journal should be attached as well. Manuscripts must conform to the usual publication guidelines (see webpages of Sociologický časopis, Demografie, or Sociální studia).
All authors of the nominated text must be students at FSS MU at the time of nomination. Access to GGS data can be obtained at http://www.ggp-i.org/data/.
Up to three papers may be chosen for the award.
