Since 2016, the Royal Studies Journal has featured two prizes - one for the best new book in the field and another to recognize new research from students and early career scholars. The prizes were initially sponsored by Canterbury Christchurch University and are now sponsored by Winchester University Press. From 2020, the RSJ is moving to a biennial scheme, alternating between the book and article prizes in order to increase the number of entries eligible for nomination by extending the time period for works under consideration.
In 2020 the book prize will be awarded--see below for the guidelines and nomination forms for the prize. Both monographs and edited collections are eligible for consideration; works must have been published between 2018-2020 (prior to the nomination deadline of 1 March 2020). The prize is worth £100 and will be awarded at the Kings and Queens 9 conference in Differdange, Luxembourg in July 2020. The book prize winner will also be featured in the December 2020 issue of the Royal Studies Journal.
