In 2019, IRSPM is launching a new prize for scholarship on women in public administration, named after Rosemary O’Leary – an outstanding academic and a previous IRSPM Routledge lifetime achievement award winner.
This prize is for the best article published in a volume year in a public administration (including public management or public policy) journal, on the topic of women and public administration, broadly defined. For the inaugural (2019) prize, this means the article must have appeared in a volume dated 2018.
Criteria on which entries will be judged
Conditions of entry
The IRSPM President (or delegate if there is a conflict of interest) will chair the judging panel, and the panel will include three other (non-conflicted) IRSPM board members.
A digital copy of the nominated article should be emailed to the IRSPM Elections Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org), along with a brief (no more than one page) statement that outlines why the article has been nominated. Submissions are due each year by 31 January of the year immediately following the volume year under consideration.
