The Association for Women in Psychology encourages submissions of theoretical and empirical manuscripts that address the psychology gender and sexual minorities, including those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer for its second annual SPECTRUM LGBTQ+ Award. Manuscripts focusing on any topic relevant to the psychology of gender and sexual minorities are invited.
The deadline to apply is August 15, 2017. Individual and jointly authored manuscripts are eligible. Manuscripts (conference papers, dissertations, journal articles, or other manuscripts) can be unpublished, under review, accepted for publication, or published. If you are submitting a published manuscript for consideration, please provide full citation and note that no manuscripts published prior to May 1, 2016, will be considered. Manuscripts not more than 50 pages are recommended; however, longer manuscripts are also eligible for review. Entire books are not eligible. Members and nonmembers of the Association for Women in Psychology are eligible to apply.
Submissions must be made by manuscript author(s) to Erin Hipple by 11:59 p.m. (Central Standard Time) on August 15, 2017. Please include two Word documents in your submission — one document containing the manuscript with no identifying information (including only the title, abstract, and manuscript body) and a second document containing contact information (i.e., author name(s) and contact information along with the title, abstract, and manuscript body). A panel of Association for Women in Psychology committee members will review the anonymous manuscripts. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of sound methodology, clarity of writing, and relevance to the advancement of the psychology of gender and sexual minorities.
The award winner will receive a $250 honorarium and their conference registration fee will be waived in order to present at the 2018 Annual Association for Women in Psychology conference. The award winner will be notified by email. Please email Erin Hipple with any questions you may have.
