APSA Book Awards
Publishers and individuals are invited to submit nominations for APSA book awards, presented each year at the Association's annual meeting. Detailed information is sent to publishers each fall, including procedures for submission.
To submit a nomination, click on the appropriate award to fill out an electronic nomination form. A copy of each nominated book should be sent to each award committee member, as well as to the APSA office. Should they meet the named criteria, books may be nominated for more than one prize. The deadline for nominations from individuals is January 15 of each year. The deadline for nominations from publishers is February 15 of each year.
Previous Calendar Year: Many books contain both a publication date and a copyright date, and these may differ. Eligiblity for these awards is deterimined by the earlier of these dates that are actually printed in the book with the publication data in the front (i.e. if a book has a printed copyright date of 2013, that is the date that applies even if it was released in 2012). If it has a date on the publication page indicating it was printed or published in 2012, then that is the date that applies even if the copyright is 2013.
