EPS Prize

The EPS Prize recognizes the achievements of experimental psychologists who have made a distinguished research contribution at an early stage of their careers (up to six years post doctorate).

Nominations may be made by any Ordinary Member of the Society. Each nomination must include the nominee’s CV, with a covering letter which describes how the nominee has made independent scientific contributions to experimental psychology that are innovative or original, and have had a substantial impact on research or theory (nb. we do not accept self-nominations). The letter should mention any evidence that the nominee is held in high esteem, has been influential, or is regarded as an authority, among scientists nationally and internationally. Nominations should be sent to the Honorary Secretary by the closing date of 1 September each year.

Nominees need not be restricted to EPS members or those of British nationality. The Committee will make a recommendation to the Annual General Meeting, at which members elect the prizewinner. The prizewinner will be invited to deliver the EPS Prize Lecture to any of the Society’s meetings in the forthcoming year. As in the case of the Bartlett Lecture, the EPS Prize Lecture will be open to all, and a manuscript based on the Lecture should be submitted to the Society for publication.

An honorarium (whose value is determined by the Committee) is paid on delivery of the manuscript of the Lecture in a form suitable for publication. For further details, see the Society’s rules 43-48.
