The ESHHS is formally affiliated with the Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences (JHBS). Together with the JHBS, the ESHHS encourages early career researchers to submit their papers for the Early Career Award. The winning paper will, after additional review by the JHBS Editorial Board, be published in JHBS with a notice indicating that it is the winner of the ESHHS Early Career Award. The Publisher will provide an honorarium of US $500 to the award recipient.
Rules and procedure
