The Journalism Studies Division of the International Communication Association (ICA) announces its 2020 Wolfgang Donsbach Outstanding Journal Article of the Year Award. The award competition is open to authors whose articles have appeared in peer-reviewed journals in the year 2019.
To qualify for the award, articles must have been published in English language peer-reviewed journals and have made a substantial contribution to our understanding of the ever-changing role of journalism in societies. Articles must be nominated by a third person. The Award Committee does not accept self-nominations. The Committee particularly encourages journal editors to nominate articles that they deem outstanding. At least one author must be a current member of ICA and the Journalism Studies Division. Nominated articles must have been published in English language in peer-reviewed journals. If the journal is not listed in ISI, evidence of the peer-review system must be supplied by the nominator.
The nominated article must have been published in a 2019 issue of the peer-reviewed journal. Final electronic versions of accepted articles that are produced by the publisher will be accepted only in cases where the last issue of the year has not yet been printed or delivered. Articles published ahead of print are not eligible. The nominator must supply a pdf version of the published article and an explanation, no more than 250 words, of why the article deserves the Award. The deadline for nominations is March1, 2020. Submissions should be sent to the Award Committee Chair, Matt Carlson, email@example.com.
