For the third year, AoIR will present an award for the best book published in internet research. This award seeks to recognize the best work in our field, and highlight the breadth of work that is done relating to the social and cultural dimensions of networked media. We will accept nominations (self and other) for Best Internet Research-Related Book published during the calendar year of 2012. Edited collections are not eligible; the book must explore a single topic and be authored or co-authored as a single text. The books will be reviewed by three eminent scholars in the field.
Three copies of the book being submitted for review should be sent to Steve Jones to arrive before April 1, 2013 at the following address:
Prof. Steve Jones
Department of Communication (m/c 132)
University of Illinois at Chicago
1007 W. Harrison St.
Chicago, IL 60607
The winner of the award will be announced in the summer of 2013. In addition to winning a cash prize, the individual will also be invited to participate at the next AoIR conference. Please contact Steve Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org or Alex Halavais at email@example.com if you have any questions about this process.
