Call for nominations for the 2013 William Alonso Prize - due by June 15, 2012

The Alonso Prize Committee invites nominations for the 2013 Alonso Prize. 

Although occasionally awarded to an article, the Alonso Prize is primarily a book prize that recognizes outstanding recent research contributions to regional science in the spirit of the work of Dr. William Alonso, author of Location and Land Use, often credited with launching the field of urban economics. Nominations may come from any individual or organization including book publishers, university departments, government agencies, and other public or private entities.

* The nominated work must be a book published in 2007 or later. An edited book will be considered only if it is tightly-integrated, not a loose collection of chapters.

* The nominated work may have single or multiple authors.

* Authors are encouraged to self-nominate, and jurors will not know which books were self-nominated.

* Previously nominated books may be re-nominated and will be considered anew.

* Five copies of the book must be received by June 15, 2012 at Alonso Prize, GeoDa Center, School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, Arizona State University, Coor Hall, MC-5302, P.O. Box 875302, 975 S. Myrtle Avenue, Tempe, AZ 85287-5302.
