 Call For Papers for the Best Young Scholar Award

(Graduate Students)



Every year, a Best Student Paper Award is given to one of the young scholars participating in that year’s IDEA Conference to encourage their further involvement. We would like to inform you that IDEA has decided to make some changes to the evaluation process of the candidate papers. In order to be eligible for the award, we now invite the candidates to apply with their papers prior to the conference. There will be an anonymous review by a jury, and those papers included in the short list will be evaluated during the conference for the award.


If you wish to be a candidate for this year’s award please send the full paper of your presentation to Dr. Aylin Alkaç alkacayl@boun.edu.tr and Dr. Ayşem Seval aseval@iku.edu.tr until 1 April 2017.


The papers should be 2200-2500 words, written in Times New Roman 12 font and double-space. They should follow MLA format and must be sent as MS Word document.


Wishing you the best of luck
