AAPAE Award for Best PhD Paper

24th Annual AAPAE Conference: Applied Ethics in the Fractured State

In its 2017 Annual Conference in Sydney (21-23 June 2017), the AAPAE will for the first time offer an award for the best PhD paper presented.
First prize will be an award for $500, and second prize for $250. Both award-winners will receive certificates, and the Award will be presented at the Conference Dinner on 22 June 2017.
The paper will be judged on its merits in terms of originality, the quality of argument, clarity, and research scholarship. Papers must be presented at the Conference in order to be eligible for either prize.
All participants, including award-winners, will be invited to submit their work to the AAPAE’s conference proceedings, in its associated journal, Emerald’s Research in Ethical Issues in Organizations (REIO). Please do note that the journal submission process for REIO is wholly independent of the Award, and winning the Award does not guarantee publication in REIO.
