Journal of Writing Research: John R. Hayes award

John R. Hayes award

We are pleased to announce the establishment of the John R. Hayes Award for excellence in writing research. This award, aimed at recognizing outstanding quantitative or qualitative empirical research in writing, will be awarded biennial to an author or authors of an article published in the Journal of Writing Research.

The award is generously funded by John R. Hayes himself. Professor Hayes (Carnegie Mellon, Pittsburgh) is one of the most influential writing researchers since 1980. He has been a pioneer in introducing cognitive psychology in writing research. There is hardly one article on writing processes that does not cite one of his publications.

The winner of the John R. Hayes Award will be selected by a committee appointed and chaired by a representation of the editors, in 2010 by Luuk Van Waes and Gert Rijlaarsdam. Articles will be evaluated for quality of empirical scholarship. Winners will be announced in the journal and recognized at the biennial Earli SIG Writing Conference in Heibelberg 2010. Recipients of the award will receive a custom-designed object and $ 1000.

We encourage you or your students to submit to JoWR to be part of the eligible pool for the 2010 award. All articles published before August 2010 will be eligible for the first award.
