All members of the profession are cordially invited to nominate candidates for the Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science. All nominations should include a written motivation, stating the major reasons for the nomination and the most important contributions to Political Science the nominee has made. Note that the nominations should ideally include an elaborate discussion of the kind of contribution the nominee has made to the field of Political Science. It is generally not sufficient to only list a list of publications and their brief descritption. 

Please note that nominations from previous years are not removed but remain on the total list of nominees. This means that there is no need to re-submit old nominations without making significant changes to the written nomination. 

Nominations should be submitted either by ordinary mail or by e-mail. The Prize Committee presently consist of five members who assemble early each year to nominate the prize winner. The board of the Johan Skytte foundation makes the final decision, which is usually communicated in April.

The deadline for nominations for the 2016 Johan Skytte Prize closes on January 15, 2016, 24:00 CET. The nominations should be sent via e-mail to li.bennich-bjorkman@statsvet.uu.se.

Should you have any questions about any aspect of the nomination process, do not hesitate to contact Michal Smrek, Information Officer at michal.smrek@statsvet.uu.se
