Early Career Award
ESRA awards an Early Career Researcher prize at each biennial conference, based on papers submitted for presentation at the conference. The author(s) of the winning paper are announced at the conference dinner, and the first author receives a cash prize of Є500. Papers are welcome in any field related to survey research broadly defined, must be 9000 words maximum, and are judged based on the quality of research design, originality, significance, organization, and presentation. The papers are completed versions of proposals accepted by the organisers for presentation at the 2019 ESRA conference. The competition is open to researchers within two years of the completion of their doctorate or within five years of starting a career in survey research. The winning paper is selected by a review committee comprising survey researchers who are members of the ESRA board and by an extra external member. Submissions are made via the Conference Management System. Further details for 2019 will be announced in due course.
