The International Health Economics Association (iHEA) is pleased to invite nominations for the Annual Student Paper Prize in Health Economics.
Nominations should include a brief letter of nomination (250 words max) and a copy of the paper (preferably pdf).
A student is defined as someone currently studying (full or part time) at a higher education institution, at either Master's or Doctoral level. In addition, students who have completed their studies in the year previous to the announcement qualify as long as the paper was written while registered as a student.
Papers can be published or unpublished, but must be in comparable format to a published paper in the Journal of Health Economics or Health Economics, of maximum length 8,000 words. Self-nomination is acceptable. Papers should be in English. If a submitted paper has more than one author, the student contribution must be at least 75% overall and an accompanying letter must be signed by co-authors to support this, stating the nature of their contribution (conceptualization, analysis, writing etc.). A joint student paper with 50-50 contributions is acceptable. Previous winners are not eligible.
Papers will be reviewed by an International Committee chaired by Professor Bruce Hollingsworth. The Prize will be subsidized travel and attendance at the 2019 iHEA Congress in Basel to present the paper in a Student Prize Special Organised Session chaired by the iHEA President, or Chair of the Prize Committee; the equivalent of US$1,000; and the offer (if the author wishes, and the paper is unpublished) of potential fast track publication in Health Economics, subject to Editorial approval.
The papers in 2nd and 3rd place will receive the equivalent of US$250 each and free registration (but not travel) at the 2019 Basel iHEA Congress. They will be invited to give brief presentations at the iHEA Congress Student Prize Special Organized Session.
Please submit nominations, and address queries by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by January 11, 2019.
