Young Researcher Prize

The Swiss Sociological Society awards a prize for the best scientific article during its congress. 

The aim is to recognize the next generation of sociologists by taking into account articles published in a national or international social science journal (peer-reviewed). Submissions may be made as the sole author or as the first author in case of a collective article (see eligibility below). The excellence of a scientific article will be evaluated by considering the following elements: conceptual contribution; analytical quality; methodological innovation; societal relevance. The prize is awarded by the SSS Committee.
