Loyola Schools Scholarly Work Publication Awards
The Loyola Schools grants the Scholarly Work Publications Awards and the Most Outstanding Scholarly Work Awards every year. In 2007, the award for Scholarly Work with Most Social Impact was also instituted. These awards give recognition to the scholarly work of full-time faculty members of the Loyola Schools. All full-time faculty members of the Loyola Schools apply for the awards by submitting their research or creative works published in the period between November 1 of the previous year and October 31 of the current year.
The Outstanding Scholarly Work Award is a special recognition to work of such quality that contributes significantly to the discipline, is novel or innovative, and/or meets high standards of excellence, e.g., an article in an ISI journal or a book published by a reputable publishing institution. The award is given to the most outstanding scholarly work in the Humanities, Science and Engineering, Social Sciences, and Management. The author, a colleague, or the Dean may nominate a published work. The awardee will be chosen by a panel of judges formed by the Dean of each school.
The award for Scholarly Work with Most Social Impact recognizes sound scholarly work that makes or has the potential to make a distinct difference in addressing socio-civic and national development concerns. One work is selected by a panel of judges among the nominees of the four schools.
