For the second year, AoIR will 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 2011. 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 March 1, 2012 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 2012. 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 email@example.com or Alex Halavais at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this process.
