Call for papers for the Tunnock Essay Prize (Scottish Archives) – closing date 1 September

We present you today a great opportunity to have your research published in a well-respected journal and receive a prize of £250.

The weather is wonderful and the archives are closed but you may well still be in a position to think about writing up an entry for the Tunnock Essay Prize. Aimed at post graduates and kindly sponsored by Thomas Tunnock Ltd, entries should focus on the use and interpretation of Scottish Archives both within Scotland and further afield.  Submissions should consist of between 4,000 and 6,000 words. Any submission that makes use of archival material to explore historical matters relevant to Scotland will be considered. The winning entry will be awarded a prize of £250 and, subject to peer review, will be eligible for publication in Scottish Archives, the journal of the Scottish Records Association.

The closing date for entries is 1 September 2020.

Further details are available on the SRA website at https://www.scottishrecordsassociation.org/the-tunnock-prize-2020 or email: editorscottisharchives@gmail.com
