 Lesbian Unpublished Manuscript Award Announcement
Posted by: Nardos Bellete
Title/Position: Committee Chair of LUMA

Sent to listserv of: SESP, SPSSI
Date posted: July 31st, 2016


I would like to share an announcement for an award opportunity geared to graduate students and early career professionals interested in lesbian psychology. The Association for Women in Psychology's Lesbian Unpublished Manuscript Award (LUMA) has extended its deadline to August 1st, see below for submission guidelines.

LUMA 2017 AWARD--Lesbian Manuscript Award

Purpose: The Association for Women in Psychology encourages theoretical and empirical scholarship that addresses the psychology of lesbians.

Topics: Manuscripts focusing on any topic relevant to the psychology of lesbians are invited.

Eligibility: Manuscripts (conference papers, dissertations, journal articles, or other manuscripts) can be unpublished, under review, accepted for publication or published. (Note: If you are submitting a published manuscript for consideration, please provide full citation and note that no manuscripts published PRIOR to Jan 1, 2016 will be considered.) Both sole and jointly authored papers are eligible. Manuscripts of less than 50 pages are preferred, but longer manuscripts are acceptable; however, no books will be considered. Members and nonmembers of the Association for Women in Psychology will be considered equally.

Deadline: August 15th, 2016

Review: Submissions must be made by manuscript author(s) to by 11:59pm (Eastern Standard Time) on August 15th, 2016. Please include two word documents in your submission, one document containing the manuscript with no identifying information (including only the title, abstract, and manuscript body) and a second document containing contact information (i.e., author name(s) and contact information along with the title, abstract, and manuscript body). A panel of Association for Women in Psychology committee members will review the anonymous manuscripts. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of sound methodology, clarity of writing, and relevance to the advancement of the psychology of lesbians.

Award: The award winner will be notified individually via email and also announced at American Psychology Association convention in August (the winner is not required to attend the APA award ceremony). The winner is invited to present the manuscript at the 2017 Annual Association for Women in Psychology conference and will receive a $250 honorarium and waived conference registration for presenting.
