2019 BPSA Publication Award for Innovation in Behavioral Policy
& BSPA’s first annual New Investigator Award
The Behavioral Science & Policy Association (BSPA) invites nominations for two awards.
The deadline for nominations is March 28, 2019.
The first is for its annual Publication Award for innovation in Behavioral Policy . BSPA’s Behavioral Policy publication award recognizes research that advances rigorous application and development of behavioral/social science to policy and practice in public, private and non-profit sectors. Its goal is to encourage work that has potential to improve the quality of life of individuals and/or organization. We will consider all research published, in journals or as books, in the years 2016-2018. The date must be the in-print date rather than the on-line date. You may send nominations (including self-nominations) via an email to the following address: awards[at]behavioralpolicy.org.
Please write BSPA Publication Award Nomination in the subject line. Note that you are allowed to nominate your own work.
Paul Slovic (Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University of Oregon and co-founder of Decision Research) is chairing this year’s Publication Award Committee.
The second award is for BSPA’s first annual New Investigator award. BSPA’s New Investigator award recognizes an early‐career scholar who received his or her doctoral degree in the last five years, so no earlier than 2014. The award will recognize a scholar whose body of work has advanced the rigorous application and development of behavioral/social science to policy and practice in public, private and/or nonprofit sectors. You may send nominations via an email to the following address: awards[at]behavioralpolicy.org.
Please write “BSPA New Investigator Nomination” in the subject line. Please include in the email the name of the nominated scholar and up to 250 words explaining how his or her work has contributed to behavioral science and policy. Please also attach the young scholar’s CV to your nomination email. Note that you may nominate yourself or others.
Katherine Milkman, Professor of Operations, Information and Decisions at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania is chairing this year’s New Investigator Award Committee.
Winner(s) will be announced at BSPA’s annual conference, June 14, 2019 in New York City.
