The Global Studies knowledge community offers an annual International Award for Excellence for new research or thinking in the area of the humanities. All articles submitted for publication in the The Global Studies Journal are entered into consideration for this award. The review committee for the award is selected from the International Advisory Board for the journal and the annual Global Studies Conference. The committee will select the winning article from the ten highest-ranked articles emerging from the referee process and according to the selection criteria outlined in the referee guidelines (see Sample Referee Form). The winning author will be invited to the next annual Global Studies Conference, where they will be formally acknowledged in a short presentation. The winner will receive a free registration to attend this conference. The nine runners-up will also be formally acknowledged.
