Call for Nominations: Society for Personality and Social Psychology Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize
Deadline: June 1, 2014
The Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize recognizes an article or book chapter judged to provide the most innovative theoretical contribution to social/personality psychology within a given year. In October 2013, the Foundation for Personality and Social Psychology and the Society for Personality and Social Psychology were pleased to announce that henceforth the Society's annual Theoretical Innovation Prize will be known as the Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize. Dan Wegner, who passed away in 2013, was recognized with the field's most prestigious awards for his highly original scholarship and novel theoretical perspective. The dedication of this award to the memory of Dan Wegner is made possible by a generous donation from Worth Publishers.
Any kind of innovative theoretical contribution can be considered for the prize, including presentations of new theories, new theory-based integrations of disparate areas of inquiry, and significant extensions of existing theories to new areas of inquiry. Theoretical contributions are eligible for the prize regardless of the format of their presentation, whether in stand-along theoretical papers, within conceptually based literature reviews, or in some other written format that highlights conceptual innovation.
The prize recognizes theoretical articles that are especially likely to generate the discovery of new hypotheses, new phenomena, or new ways of thinking about the discipline of social/personality psychology. Theoretical contributions may be judged innovative and generative even before they have accumulated substantial empirical support. Therefore, an article may be judged worthy for the prize even if it runs the risk of empirical invalidation in the future. The emphasis of the prize is on a contribution's conceptual innovation and potential to motivate new research and further conceptual investigation, rather than on its current level of empirical support.
Eligible articles are those published as papers in peer-reviewed journals or as book chapters during the previous calendar year. Books and unpublished manuscripts are not eligible.
Eligible articles may be nominated by their authors or by other members of SPSP. The Nomination Panel may also consider additional eligible papers even if not nominated by their authors or other individuals.
