Royal Studies Journal Prizes

RSJ Book and Article Prizes:


Sponsored by Canterbury

Christ Church University (CCCU)


The Royal Studies Journal is delighted that nominations are open for its two annual prizes - one for the best new book in the field and another to recognize new research from students and early career scholars.

The prize scheme is funded by a generous grant from Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU). See below for the guidelines and nominations forms for both prizes. Each prize is worth £50 and will be awarded at the Kings and Queens 7 conference in Winchester in July 2018. The winning article will be published in the December 2018 issue of the Royal Studies Journal and the book prize winner will also be featured in this issue as well.
