New Author Award

The New Author Award was instituted in 1993 to recognize superior writing by previously unpublished archivists and to encourage new research and writing on archival topics. It is awarded to practicing archivists who have not had article-length writings published in professional journals, or to students in an archival education program.

The New Author Award is presented in odd-numbered years for articles appearing in a two-year (four issue) cycle of Archival Issues. A panel of three archivists independent of the journal’s Editorial Board select the winner of the New Author Award. Winners of the reward receive a certificate and $250.
