Nursing Clio Prize for Best Journal Article

The Nursing Clio Prize for Best Journal Article is awarded annually for the best peer-reviewed academic journal article on the intersection of gender and medical histories in English. The award consists of a $300 cash prize and a featured interview on the blog about the article.

For the 2020 prize, submissions are open to any article published in 2019, and we encourage self-nominations. Any Nursing Clio writer or reader is eligible with the exception of NC staff. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2020. Please send a PDF copy of the original article, as well as a PDF copy of the article without any identifying information (including your name and the name of the journal) to Chair of the committee Cassia Roth (cassia.roth@uga.edu), who can also address any questions on submissions. We will announce the winner in early May.
