The March 1st deadline is fast approaching to submit for the new Science Museum Group Journal writing prize. Designed to encourage and reward research articles by talented early career scholars, the £500 prize will be awarded for the best original research article that addresses research questions in the history of science and technology, material culture, heritage, exhibitions, or science engagement.

Submission is open to all researchers in the early stages of their academic career – whatever their age – and we aim to publish the winning article in the Journal.

More details are on the Journal site – so do spread the word and send submissions (or enquires) to the editorial staff at
