Adventures in Reading Comprhension

Yesterday I noted that, with the deadline for casting them fast approaching, we are no longer likely to honor requests for ballots.

Since then I’ve received a deluge of requests for ballots.

Quick Notes on Awards

We’re still getting ballot requests. They tend to come in waves. Indeed, the last one all came from individuals at the same university. Hmmm.

Award Ballot

As promised, this is my post announcing that we’ve sent an email out with the ballot for the 2013 OAIS awards.We believe that we sent one to everyone that requested one before the deadline, as well as to a list of people that we generated internally.

If you did not receive one and requested one, my apologies. Please email us about getting one (but check your spam filter first). As the voting period lasts until January 31, we can also accomodate late requests for ballots. But the window is closing, so do let us know if you want one.

“Final List” of Award Nominees and Additional ISA Reception Details

This constitutes our promised post containing the “final list” of OAIS Award Nominees. This is also your last chance to let us know if we’ve left off an eligible nomination.

We will send out a ballot soon. The current plan is to use a Borda-count process to create a list of finalists and to proceed to a second round to determine the winners in each category. We welcome feedback on that procedure.

A reminder: we will announce winners at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association (ISA). The award ceremony will take place during the first-ever International Studies Blogging reception–which will take place on Thursday April 4th from 7.30-8.30pm. The reception, which is sponsored by SAGE, will feature 4-5 minute “spoken blogpost” presentations. The current lineup includes Erica Chenoweth, Dan Drezner, Rob Farley, Marc Lynch, and Steve Walt. We hope that ISA participants will join us, and note that the OAIS awards are in no way, shape, or form affiliated with the ISA.

2012 International Studies Blogging Awards: Final Call

sand-29124_640The deadline for nominations and voter registration is 1 January 2013. The list of nominees has slightly expanded since my last update. You should feel free to add nominations in the comments section below. Please do check the eligibility criteria.

You can register to vote by emailing us with your coordinates. I’ve mentioned before that registration guarantees you a right to a ballot, but that we will also be drawing up a list of people who will receive one regardless. Note that we do not respond to all registration emails. If you emailed us and do not get a ballot (we’ll announce when those go out), please let us know then.

I’ve reproduced the nominees below the fold. Don’t forget to check out my awards-related interview with SAGE.

Penultimate Call for Award Nominations

sand-29124_640The deadline for nominations and voter registration is fast approaching. The list of nominees is unchanged since my last update. You should feel free to add nominations there, to email us, or in he comments section below. Please do check the eligibility criteria.

The two most common ineligible nominees are (1) restrictions on Duck of Minerva pieces and permanent contributors and (2) online articles that don’t qualify as blogs, such as Foreign Affairs snapshots. Unfortunately, this double-disqualifies Charli’s  excellent “Game of Thrones as Theory“–which, after being named “best of the web” for Foreign Affairs pieces in 2012, has catapulted back into its “most read.”

You can register to vote by emailing us with your coordinates. I’ve mentioned before that registration guarantees you a right to a ballot, but that we will also be drawing up a list of people who will receive one regardless. Still, I’m seeing some signs of registration with the aim of supporting specific nominees, so if you care enough about the outcome to answer a five-minute survey, I would recommend that you go ahead and register.

I’ve reproduced the nominees below the fold. Don’t forget to check out my awards-related interview with SAGE.

Awards Update

cmcp34280_masterIf you haven’t seen it, I did a (text) interview with SAGE about academic blogging and the awards. This was the source of my sense of déjà vu during my discussion with Rob Farley: some of the points overlap.

Regardless, time is growing short. Here’s where things stand:

International Studies Blogging Awards Update[d]

I’ve long warned promised that I would start flogging these awards in a serious way. Due, in part to some prodding from SAGE, that time has now come. Here’s where we stand:

Announcing the 2013 Blogging Reception and Awards at ISA

The staff of the Duck of Minerva is very pleased to announce: (1) the first-ever blogging reception at the International Studies Association (ISA) annual convention; and (2) the Online Achievement in International Studies (OAIS) Awards.

Thanks to the generous support of SAGE and the efforts of SAGE editor David Mainwaring, we will be hosting a reception at the 2013 International Studies Association Annual Convention in San Francisco. Details to follow in updates, but the reception is scheduled for the night of Thursday, April 4th.  A number of prominent bloggers will give brief Ignite-style presentations—verbal versions of blog posts, if you will. The current schedule includes Dan Drezner, Erica Chenoweth, Robert Farley, and Steve Walt.

At the 2013 reception we will announce the winners of the first-ever Online Achievements in International Studies Awards.  For 2013 there will be five awards:

  • Special Achievement in International-Studies Blogging;
  • Best Blog (Group) in International Studies;
  • Best Blog (Individual) in International Studies;
  • Best Blog Post in International Studies; and
  • Most Promising New Blog (Group or Individual) in International Studies.

We intend for each of these awards – with the exception of the “Special Achievement” category – to become an annual institution. The “Special Achievement” award will be awarded at the discretion of the Duck of Minerva staff. More about the awards below the fold. This same information is collected here (the link is also on the menu bar). UPDATE: Nominations should be logged on this post.
