Objectives of the prize
The aim of the ”la Caixa” Prize in Social Sciences is to advance analysis and debate
on the transformations that contemporary society faces. This could relate to social,
environmental, technological and health related challenges, or a combination of this.
Through this competition, ”la Caixa” will reward studies of proven scientific and
academic quality and will contribute to their dissemination by publishing them.
Requirements
• Participant studies will focus on the social context from a Spanish or international
comparative perspective.
• The studies must include an analysis of empirical data generated by the author/
authors, although studies which analyze empirical data obtained from secondary
sources will also be accepted.
• Work that has been previously published or awarded a similar prize will not be
accepted.
• Studies must be finished and ready for publication.
• Studies can be submitted in English, Spanish or Catalan.
• Submissions must be around 145,000 characters (spaces included).
Candidates
The prize is aimed at both researchers or research groups linked to a university
institution or a public or private research body.
Topics
Primary consideration will be given to studies within the following research
frameworks:
Social change and the life course
Studies regarding the analysis of social change in certain life stages or related to
principal life transitions in family contexts.
Social cohesion
Studies that analyse social exclusion and its determinants, as well as its manifestations
in poverty, isolation, marginalization and violence.
Education and citizenship
Studies aimed at the analysis of the role of formal and informal education in the
formation of citizenry and in civic, political and associative participation, as well as in
the building of competencies for active citizenship.
Health and quality of life
Studies related to public health, quality of life, the welfare of individuals and
populations, the prevention of illness and improving the health care system.
Information Society
Studies that analyze the social impact in the public and private spheres of
information and communication technologies (ICT), access to ICT or their new uses
and applications.
Urban planning, the environment and sustainable development
Studies related to the social dimension of sustainable development and the
interrelationships between the environment, ecological crisis and the production and
use of resources.
Globalization, poverty and social exclusion
Studies that analyze, with an international approach, the impact on poverty
and inequality resulting from globalization and the growing socioeconomic
interdependencies.
Presentation of studies
The studies must follow the rules for presentation of original texts and style found at
http://obrasocial.lacaixa.es/laCaixaFoundation/socialsciences_en.html, in the section
corresponding to the prize.
The study should be sent as a PDF document to the following email: [email protected]
fundacionlacaixa.org. The name or names of the author or authors must not be
included anywhere in the document. In addition, the following documents (also
in PDF format, identified only by the title of the study and without any names or
personal data) must also be submitted:
• An abstract of the study of no more than 1,000 characters.
• An outline of the potential social impact of the results of the study.
Furthermore, these two identification documents must also be submitted in PDF
format:
• A letter with the title of the study and personal and professional information
regarding the author or authors. The letter must express the candidate’s intention
to participate in the competition for the social science prize and acceptance of the
rules regarding the awarding of the prize as well as of the decision of the jury. It
must also include a statement indicating that the work has not been previously
published and, in the case of being awarded the prize, granting all publishing rights
to ”la Caixa” Welfare Projects. The author must sign the letter; if the authorship is
collective, all the authors must sign.
• A brief professional curriculum vitae for all the authors, including publications
and competitive research projects related to the topic of the project they have
participated in during the last five years (no more than 2,500 characters per
author).
The author or authors will only be identified once the jury has awarded the prize.
The identities of the authors will remain unknown to the jury as they examine the
studies.
Deadline for online submission
The deadline for the entry of works will be 31 March 2015.
Granting and publicizing of the prize
The prize is 15,000 euros and includes the publication of the winning study.
The award-winning study will undergo a process of peer review and, if necessary,
will be revised by the authors.
The prize will be paid in two instalments: 50% when the decision of the jury is made
public and the other 50% when ”la Caixa” Welfare Projects grants approval for the
publication of the study.
The award of the prize implies, in all cases, granting all rights to the work for its
publication in any medium or language. ”la Caixa” Welfare Projects may authorize
the authors to carry out adaptations or subsequent editions of the work as long as
the awarding of the prize by ”la Caixa” is mentioned.
In the case of multiple authors, the authors will indicate what percentage of the
prize corresponds to each. If not indicated, it is understood that the prize will be
shared equally among all of the authors.
The prize is subject to the withholding of taxes established by current legislation.
Jury and resolution
The jury will be comprised of experts from different fields in the social sciences. The
decision of the jury will be made by a simple majority and is final. By agreeing to
participate, candidates waive any challenge to the decision of the jury or any action
against these criteria. The award may be declared void at the discretion of the jury.
The jury’s decision will be communicated by email to all candidates on 15 May 2015.
The prize-winning author or authors may not make public statements regarding
their work or make known its results and conclusions until the study is published.
